Mads Mikkelsen joins FANTASTIC BEASTS

Mads Mikkelsen has joined the Wizarding World as the evil Grindelwald



Fantastic Beasts (Warner Bros.)

Earlier this month it was reported that Mads Mikkelsen was the top choice to replace Johnny Depp in the Fantastic Beasts series. Johnny Depp who played Gellert Grindelwald, was asked to step down after losing a legal battle against The Sun.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros confirmed that Mads Mikkelsen has indeed been cast as the dark and powerful wizard for Fantastic Beasts 3 and, we assume, the subsequent sequels. According to sources, Mikkelsen was David Yates’ first choice. Although, it would be interesting to see who else was in for a chance to play the villain.

In line with Depp’s departure, Warner Bros made the decision to delay Fantastic Beasts 3. The original date was set for November 12, 2021 but has now been moved to Summer 2022. However, Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law are already shooting.
