RUMOR: Mads Mikkelsen In Talks To Replace Johnny Depp As Grindelwald In Fantastic Beasts 3

Acording to Deadline actor Mads Mikkelsen is reportedly being considered to come aboard Fantastic Beasts 3 to replace Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. while I haven’t given a whole lot of thought to recasting the role, to the suggestion of Mikkelsen, I have to say…

Mikkelsen is a fine actor. And as I’m sure most of you readers know, he’s no stranger to big franchises. Already having been a part of Doctor Strange, the James Bond series, and Star Wars as he was essential in filling in one of film’s most famous plotholes as Gaylen Erso in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

As with any unconfirmd information we must use grain of salt protocol until official word comes down. However, with filming of Fantastic Beasts 3 underway Warner Bros need to take care of this situation quickly. If we had an LRM rumor meter, I would say the needle would be pointing to the true side. However, this is just me guessing with a bit of wishful thinking mixed in.

The magical nature of the film will make Grindelwald’s change in appearance more easily explainable, whether t turns out to be Mikkelsen or another actor. Oddly enough a similar sort of character switch happened in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.  Johnny Depp,  Jude Law, and Colin Farrell all stepped in to replace Ledger after his tragic passing, with a request that donations were to made to Ledger’s daughter
