The 'crimes' of Johnny Depp enrage Potterheads


New Delhi [India], Nov 19 (ANI): Johnny Depp’s appearance in ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2’ has been revealed and many Potterheads have turned sorehead.

The 54-year-old actor bagged a finale cameo in the first ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movie as dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, and the fans voiced their disappointment back when his casting was first announced.

Now, with the second movie, titled ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’, promising a lot more Depp, last year's casting controversy has been thrown back into light.

Fans are slamming the decision to bring the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star back because of the allegations that came out during his divorce from Amber Heard, who accused him of abuse.

One Twitterati wrote, “The cruelest trick a movie has ever played on us: replacing Colin Farrell with what appears to be the bloated, sun-bleached corpse of Johnny Depp,” while another tweeted, “I wholeheartedly agree that Johnny Depp is a fantastic beast. However, I wish I did not know where to find him.”

Some have directly petitioned author JK Rowling to engineer his dismissal from the film.

“Really intrigued by the plot of #crimesofgrindelwald but will almost certainly not be seeing it in theaters. @jk_rowling and @WarnerBrosEnt should have ousted Depp from the franchise years ago. Despicable that he's heading the continuation of such a beloved story,” wrote one.

Rowling had defended Depp's casting last year at the premiere of the first ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movie, saying she was "delighted" with it. "He's done incredible things with that character," she added.

Earlier in 2016, Heard had filed for a temporary restraining order against him, having alleged he had both physically and verbally abused her – claims which he denied. She later withdrew her request for the order. (ANI)
