Fans of the Fantastic Beasts franchise were shocked to hear this Johnny Depp had been asked by Warner Bros. to step down from the role of central villain. The intent had always been for Depp to play the role during the remainder of the series, but that changed amid various allegations made against the actor.

Although the situation itself was very different, this is of course not the first time Mads Mikkelsen entered a role already set by someone else. Mikkelsen played the legendary serial killer Hannibal Lecter in Hannibal on television and succeeded Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins, who had made the role his own several times on the big screen. The similarities are not lost to Mikkelsen, who even compares his interpretation of Grindelwald with that of Hannibal.

“This is obviously a more straightforward comparison since it’s the next movie. So we’ve built a couple of bridges that will allow us to recognize it, but we also said we had to make it our own. I was a fan by Johnny Depp since I saw him as a young man and trying to bring his intensity and his way of doing it into my work is a no-go. I have to find my own because his is unique, and I just have to let it be and find another way. ”

While the details of the plot for Fantastic Beasts 3 are not yet known, it will no doubt develop into World War II and the parallel Wizarding War. There are currently plans to make up to five films in the franchise. Star Katherine Waterston announces that director David Yates will direct them all. “I think he should direct them all,” revealed the actress. “I think it’s very interesting. He worked very closely with him [franchise creator] JK Rowling has had access for a long time and very few people have access to her because she is pretty isolated and I honestly can’t imagine how it could honestly work any other way. “
