A few days ago, Johnny Depp dismissed Harry Potter in a spin-off, Fantastic Beast 3, Warner Bros. Studios pressured him to do so. It was meant as a response to her, which related to her filing a lawsuit against the UK for misrepresenting her former domestic abuse case Amber Hurd in her domestic abuse case. Johnny Depp played the dark wizard, Gellert Grindelwald, who first cameoed at the end of Fantastic Beasts and then as the main antagonist in the sequel. The series also features Eddie Redmayne, Catherine Waterstone, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller and Jude Law. And Harry Potter is set before the events of the films. The actor issued a statement after Johnny Depp asked Warner Bros. to resign from the Fantastic Beasts after the Los Angeles case in London.
Now the latest reports say that John Depp is in talks with Mads Mikkelsen to replace Grindelwald, and we must say that this sounds like a terrible casting. While Grindelveld does not reach the dangerous excesses of Lord Voldemort, he still fears a megalomaniac who wants the magicians to rule the non-magic people aka The Mughals. Fantastic Beast 3: Mads Mikkalson in early talks to replace Johnny Depp in Warner Bros. Production.
What humanizes her in her conflicting relationship with the former best friend is Albus Dumbledore – a bond that disturbs a crushed love story. With so much nuance in a role,
Depp may have felt a great casting in the role, and the second film gave a glimpse of it. But this is not going to happen next, and we have to accept the circumstances in which it broke.

Mikkelsen might not pretend that Depp often gets romanced in his character (see the point of being a hmmm … poke sequel), but he has experience playing dark characters with enough dexterity. His five roles are proof that he could have made Grindelwald the kind of complex villain that the franchise wants.

We cannot begin this list with her most frequent role in a series which, unfortunately, has been canceled. While Anthony Hopkins is still the most known lecture to fans, Mikelsen does full justice to the serial killer character with a taste for human flesh. Despite his murderous murders, he transforms the lecturer into this charismatic, smooth-talking principle that we find it difficult to place him among the bad guys.
Kylius in Doctor Strange
Mads Mikelsen in Doctor Strange
Mickelsen’s role in Doctor strange One of his best parts is not, we agree, Marvel in particular considers him as a one-off adversary and eventually makes him an acoletti of Doraemu. But as Kylius, Mikelsen is reasonably vicious, sharp with injury and resentment. There is one particular scene where the actor shines best, and this is where he reveals his tragic backstory for Strange. His eyes express the hurt and pain at the betrayal and show why he went down the dark path.
Lucas in Hunt
Mads Mikkelsen in Hunt
In my opinion, this is Mikselen’s best performance so far, an act that earned him the Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival. He plays the role of Lucas, a school-teacher whose life is destroyed by unfounded speculation that he is a peodophile. It is a heart-wrenching story relevant in the present day, where people look forward to jumping to conclusions based on unverified facts rather than searching for the truth. Despite not being an adversary, Lucas is a tragic figure who is hurt by the people around him whom he considered friends. A sentiment that Mikkalsen could use when Grindelwald faced Dumbledore at some point in the franchise.
Father Ivan in Adam’s apple
Mads Mikelsen in Adam’s apple
Can Mikkalsen do comedy? Look no further Adam’s apple, A Danish film, as an answer for this, although it is not a general comedy. Adams apple Darkness is filled with humor where Mikelsen plays the role of a priest to reform hardened criminals, but finds one of his accusations to question his own faith. Despite believing in goodness in humanity, Ivan is indeed a tragic character, with a pathetic childhood who sees his past bad experiences as a test from Satan,
One-Eye at Valhala Rising
Mads Mickelsen at Valhalla Rising
Like every film of Nicholas Curved Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives, Neon Monster), Valhalla Rising Never an easy watch, with its brooding theme and gore visuals. But it’s definitely an enchanting experience, making Mickelson’s silent performance as One-Eye even better. A former slave of the Norwegian chieftain, One-I becomes a messiah of the tribes that promise to take him to the Holy Land, while being guided by the visions he sees. Of course, the journey is not exactly what he wants, but One-Eye is shown as someone who can convince people that he can take them to the Greater Good. Now where have we heard before?
