Speaking about Depp’s potential comeback, Mikkelsen instructed the Deadline that now that the courtroom has dominated in favour of Depp, the studio would possibly think about taking him again. “Obviously, well, now the course has changed — he won the suit (against Amber), the court (case) — so let’s see if he comes back. He might,” Mikkelsen stated.
After Depp was requested to depart the challenge, Mikkelsen was roped in to play the villainous Gellert Grindelwald within the Harry Potter spinoff collection.

Warner Bros had initially stated it could observe how properly the movie is acquired earlier than committing to extra sequels.
Mikkelsen had additionally spoken about how he was initially hesitant about to getting into Depp’s sneakers. “I’m a big fan of Johnny. I think he’s an amazing actor, I think he did a fantastic job. Having said that, I could not copy it. There was no way I could just copy it, because it’s so much him. It would be creative suicide. So, we had to come up with something else, something that was mine, and build a bridge between him and me. So, yes, it was intimidating. His fans were very, very sweet, but they were also very stubborn. I didn’t interact too much with them, but I could understand why they had their hearts broken,” the actor had instructed GQ.
Depp has already begun making a comeback. He was lately solid as King Louis XV in a brand new movie, and lately introduced that he’ll direct Al Pacino in a biopic about Italian painter Amadeo Modigliani.
