After Johnny Depp’s departure from the role of Gellert Grindelwald in the coming Fantastic Beasts 3many questions remain about exactly how Mads Mikkelsen will be brought in to replace him. Currently, the public has no idea exactly how the switchover will proceed. Will Depp transform into Mikkelsen Doctor Who style? Or will Grindelwald just look like Mikkelsen now without any explanation? Well, while I have the Fantastic Beasts 3 script, Mikkelsen revealed that the villain won’t be in the movie as often as fans probably expect.
“We’ve finished it. Obviously, I’m only part of it half the time as the rest of the gang. It was a lovely experience. I think they had a great script, a great, solid story. , if that’s anything to measure, I think the movie is going to be … you know, as magical as it needs to be, with all the beautiful creatures, but also very beautiful. There are some really interesting, heartbreaking stories in there And hopefully that will come across. “
Fans of the Fantastic beasts franchise was shocked to hear that Johnny Depp was by Warner Bros. asked to step down from the role of the central villain. Depp was always meant to play the role for the rest of the series, but this changed amid several allegations made against the actor.
Although the situation itself was very different, this is of course not the first time Mads Mikkelsen got into a role already set by someone else. Mikkelsen played the iconic serial killer Hannibal Lecter on TVs Hannibal, who took over from Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins, who had made the role his own on the big screen several times. The similarities are not lost with Mikkelsen, who even compares his interpretation of Grindelwald with that of Hannibal.
“This is clearly a more direct comparison, because it’s the next movie. So we made a few bridges that let us recognize it, but we also said we should make it our own. I’ve been a fan of Johnny Depp since I left. saw him as a young man, and to try to bring his intensity and his manner into my work is a no-go. I have to find mine because he’s unique, and I just have to let that be, and find another path. “
While plot details for Fantastic Beasts 3 remain firmly hidden, it will no doubt continue to build World War II and the wizarding war that parallels it. There are currently plans to make up to five films in the franchise, with star Katherine Waterston revealing that director David Yates will direct them all. “I think he’s supposed to be directing them all,” the actress revealed. “I find it very interesting. He has worked very closely [franchise creator] J.K. Rowling for a long time and very few people have access to her because she is quite isolated and so I can’t really imagine how it could work any other way. “
