Johnny Depp Confirms His Return As Grindelwald In "Fantastic Beasts 3"

But the movie has not been without controversy, as many people criticized the inclusion of Johnny Depp after abuse allegations of his ex-wife Amber Heard came to light, as well as photos documenting her injuries and police reports detailing the fights.

The British writer released a statement late previous year, saying 'Based on our understanding of the circumstances, the filmmakers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting, but genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies'.

Rowling lamented the inability to address fans more candidly about the issue, but maintained that she and the filmmakers stand by Depp's casting. "But ultimately, there is real controversy", Depp said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. And also there were screaming matches with then-Disney president Michael Eisner on the set of Pirates of the Caribbean.

'The fact remains I was falsely accused, which is why I'm suing the The Sun newspaper for defamation for repeating false accusations. "There was one thing I didn't see coming".

He, however, does admit to feeling bad that Rowling has to endure the negative comments surrounding his role as Grindelwald in the forthcoming sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The possibilities in that world are wide open, so you can really try anything. Depp explained, "I loved it because that's really an arena where you can fly around and try different things and approach a character... who is teetering on being a fascist, yeah he's a fascist", he continued, "but to play him as a sensitive, concerned yet manipulative and powerful wizard". Despite the bitter proceedings, in August 2016, Heard withdrew her restraining order request, and the exes settled their divorce, saying in a joint statement, "Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love", adding, "Neither party has made false accusations for financial gains". So it was a gas and I look forward to the next installment'.

She claimed the couple had an explosive row and he threw an iPhone in her face, bruising her eye and cheek. There is one... I got to the end and my jaw dropped.

When asked how he felt about the fallout, Depp's first thought went to the magical world's creator, J.K. Rowling. No, it didn't, it couldn't even sound like me'.
