‘Harry Potter’ Fans Deserve Way More Than Johnny Depp In ‘Fantastic Beasts 2’

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Johnny Depp’s role in “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.”

Last summer, Amber Heard filed a restraining order against Johnny Depp for domestic abuse.

There were pictures of a giant bruise on her face, where, she said, her husband hit her.

And despite rampant sexist claimsshe was lying to get rich, after Amber was awarded $7 million,she donated every penny of her divorce settlement to stop violence against women and to a childrens hospital.

So why, for the love of Merlin, has Johnny Depp been gifted a major role in one of the most beloved and successful film series of all time, less than six months later?

On Tuesday,Warner Bros. revealedDepp will star in the upcoming sequel to the Harry Potter spinoff, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Depp will also apparently have a small appearance in the first film, which opens November 18.

While the studio has not officially confirmed what Depps role will be, Hypable reports an anonymous source involved in the film says he will be playing Gellert Grindelwald.

You can see a brief shot of Depp for yourself at around 3:22 in the below featurette.

Early last month, JK Rowling revealed there would be a total of five Fantastic Beasts films, and that future films would focus on Grindelwald as a prominent character.

In case youve forgotten, Grindelwald was Dumbledores friend and lover back in the day, but power went to his head and he became the dark leader of the First Wizarding War.
