Mads Mikkelsen beats Johnny Depp Why the replacement in «Fantastic Beasts 3» was a good idea [Podcast]

» Fantastic Beasts 3: Dumbledore’s Secrets » has been in German cinemas since April 7, 2022 (and in a few other countries around the world). That alone is an achievement, as everyone involved has had a strenuous production since filming was first delayed in 2019 — which was then further complicated by Corona and the recasting of the central villain.

What has happened so far: Depp out, Mikkelsen in

Filming had already started in late 2020 (really this time) when it was decided that Johnny Depp would not play the character Gellert Grindelwald after all, as he did in Part 2.

Studio Warner had asked the one-time superstar to resign from his role, apparently afraid that the scandal surrounding the ongoing court battle between Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard would overshadow the «Fantastic Beasts 3» advertising campaign (she accuses him of fisticuffs). , he accuses her of defamation). Depp complied with the studio’s request — and with the Danish acting star Mads Mikkelsen («Hannibal» series) a replacement was signed in the middle of the production.

Some fans didn’t like this decision at all, partly because of their opinion on the dispute between Johnny Depp and Amber Head, but also because of Depp’s interpretation of the evil wizard, for whom one could not imagine a better actor . In the new episode of our weekly cinema podcast, Screen Love, we discuss «Fantastic Beasts 3» and the recast, which is judged here regardless of background.

Mikkelsen is the better Grindelwald

Moderator Sebastian discusses with our social media manager Melanie and our Moviepilot colleague Esther. All three agree: the charismatic Mads Mikkelsen is — despite all the appreciation for Johnny Depp’s performance — even the better Grindelwald actor.

Mikkelsen also builds a menacing aura largely without a creepy eye, plays more nuanced than Depp, and has strong chemistry with Jude Law, who plays Grindewald’s one-time lover Dumbledore, are the arguments put forward in the podcast.
