After Johnny Depp left the Fantastic Beasts franchise, Warner Bros. officially CONFIRMED the hiring of Mads Mikkelsen (‘Hannibal’) to fill the role of Grindelwald in the upcoming film.
Mikkelsen last week denied being in talks, but apparently it was just a way to outsmart the press before the studio confirmed it.
Several internet fans have expressed their enthusiasm for the novelty, as most were still against Depp’s programming due to the controversy between him and Amber Heard, who accused him of domestic violence.
Check out the reactions:

If Mads Mikkelsen becomes the grinwald of fantastic beasts, I become potterhead

If Mads Mikkelsen takes Johnny Depp’s place, it will be just another interesting addition to Fantastic Beasts. Now the only problem is JK Rowling.
But Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Jude Law, Dan Fogler are the keys to success.
I’m going to see Tina and Newt

‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ petition for Johnny Depp’s return surpasses 130,000 signatures
After a major loss in UK courts for being a “female drummer,” Johnny Depp was released by Warner Bros. from the “Fantastic Animals” franchise.
In a statement, Warner confirmed the actor’s departure:
“Johnny Depp will be leaving the Fantastic Beasts franchise. We thank Johnny for his work on the films so far. Fantastic Beasts 3 is currently in production and the role of Gellert Grindelwald will be reviewed. The film will be released in theaters around the world in the summer of 2022. “
Depp bet on his Instagram that Warner Bros. he asked to resign from the franchise and he accepted the request.
“In light of recent events, I would like to make this brief statement,” he wrote. “First of all, I want to thank everyone who gave me support and loyalty. I am honored and touched to have received several messages of love and affection, especially in recent days. Second, I would like to let you know that you have been asked to leave Warner Bros. and quit my role as Grindelwald in the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise – and I have respected and accepted that request. Finally, I would like to say this: The surrealist judgment of the UK court will not change my struggle to tell the truth and I confirm that I intend to appeal. My resolve remains firm and I intend to prove that the allegations against me are false. My life and my career will not be defined by this moment ”.
Last month, Forbes magazine ran a critical article on the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise – and the end of the “Harry Potter” saga spin-off.
Since the inception of the new film franchise, which has confirmed five films, countless controversies have started to surround the production. The first of these was the hiring of Johnny Depp to play the villainous Grindelwald: Depp had faced a difficult trial alongside ex-wife Amber Heard, accused of sexual and domestic violence. Months after the release of the second feature film, it was proven that both sides had committed the crimes.
The second rose with Ezra Miller. The interpreter of Credence Barebone / Aurelius Dumbledore has been spotted assaulting a fan and since then fans have called for his removal from the saga.
Most recently, the storyteller has drawn some damn attention to her by posting transphobic posts on her official Twitter, being struck by countless stars from the original franchise. For this reason, the famous newspaper analyzed the numbers of the first films of “Fantastic Animals” and made an unfavorable outlook.
The factors in question, combined with the swaying narrative construction and cold reception from audiences and critics for the final film, may indicate a premature end to the prequel. After all, “ Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald ” (2018) saw a dramatic drop in revenue, grossing just $ 614 million (on a budget of $ 200 million). For comparison, the first iteration had a box office of 814 million US dollars – which is also a high level for the Wizarding Universe, considering the number of “Harry Potter”.
Now the main element that will decide the fate of “Fantastic Beasts” is the audience. After all, according to the magazine, “if fans jump out of the boat, the franchise will follow the same fate as” X-Men “and” Divergent “” (for those who don’t remember, both sagas had a resolution or a terrible cancellation in movie theaters.).
Recordings for the sequel were due to start on March 16, but were postponed indefinitely by order of the London local government.
‘Fantastic Beasts 3’, still without an official subtitle, is set to open on November 12, 2021.
