Would Johnny Depp Returning to Fantastic Beasts Save the Franchise?

Published

on

The Fantastic Beasts franchise has an ambitious goal of releasing a couple more movies, even though fans seem to be growing increasingly dissatisfied with the direction the story is going.

The third Fantastic Beasts installment has only garnered $400 million in global box office — a modest figure compared to $654 million grossed by Crimes of Grindelwald, the second movie. Besides, Secrets of Dumbledore released to mixed reviews from fans and critics. While some people clearly enjoyed a chance to get back to their favorite magical universe, others blasted the third movie for “bad acting, bad plot and bad CGI”.

Many people predicted that the Fantastic Beasts franchise will only “go down” after the tumultuous exit of Johnny Depp amid the accusations of domestic abuse. It’s not that people had any particular issues with Mads Mikkelsen, who ended up replacing Depp as evil wizard Gellert Grindelwald, but rather about the fandom being generally disappointed about Depp being out.

Mikkelsen himself said that he believes Johnny might be back as Grindelwald now that he has won the trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard. However, Depp’s return is still not promised.

Besides, people think that even the comeback won’t be able to magically fix things for the franchise.

According to one fan, the audience is now “more familiar” with the chemistry between Jude Law’s Dumbledore and Mad Mikkelsen’s Grindelwald, so it’s unlikely the studio will change that.

While many people mourn Depp’s departure from the franchise, the movies’ problem is not about the person who portrays Grindelwald, according to people.

With Secrets of Dumbledore, the problem was mainly about the story that was not very compelling, and with “bad” CGI that simply could not make people believe that even the fantastic beasts — supposedly a centerpiece of the story — were real.

“Please let them cancel Fantastic Beasts. The last two movies have been embarrassingly atrocious, even without casting controversies…” Twitter user DrummerFromFife lamented.

Despite the general disappointment around the three Fantastic Beasts movies, there are two more to be announced. And it looks like they can use good script and convincing visuals instead of trying to bring back Johnny Depp.

Jenna Ortega’s Biggest Regret? Wednesday Scene Fans Can’t Stop Talking About

Despite the ultimate fan love she received for the viral Wednesday dance, the actress seems to think she could have done better.

Quickly becoming one of Netflix‘s biggest hits ever, Wednesday is marching through Twitter threads, TikTok videos, and Instagram reels and garnering views and likes months after the premiere. All of this thanks to the show’s most popular scene — the Wednesday dance to The Cramps’ Goo Goo Muck at the school disco at Nevermore.

However, speaking with Entertainment Tonightat the Golden Globes ceremony, the show’s main star Jenna Ortega revealed that she isn’t fully satisfied with the final result.

“There was so much I could have done and should have done. So, the fact that anyone has shown any appreciation or even tried it themselves is unfathomable to me,” the actress said, commenting on the Wednesday dance’s viral popularity.

Ortega choreographed the dance herself, somehow managing to combine improvisation and old goth moves. Besides, she also revealed that she had to film the scene while having coronavirus — something that the actress and the production were heavily criticized for.

Still, despite Ortega’s apparent regrets, the dance scene is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Netflix’s Wednesday. This all started with a TikTok edit that popularized the dance, but with a high-pitched remix of Lady Gaga‘s Bloody Mary instead of the original soundtrack.

Now, Netflix has greenlit Wednesday for a second season — and even used Bloody Mary to promote the upcoming sequel, apparently nodding to the viral song choice. The premiere date for Wednesday season 2 is yet to be announced.
