While Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is set to zap its way into movie theaters in exactly one month from now on November 16, one thing we already know is that Harry Potter mastermind J.K. Rowling is already hard at work on the third installment in the franchise. Possibly more beyond that. While we don’t have any idea who will make up the returning or new cast members in that film, a recent report has indicated that at least one actor from the Fantastic Beasts franchise will be making a return for the third installment.
Actor Ezra Miller is a man of many talents. In addition to being a part of the Fantastic Beasts world, he’s also the Fastest Man Alive, as he plays the part of Barry Allen in the DC Extended Universe. A report yesterday indicated that the solo Flash film had been pushed back with one of the key reasons being that Miller is already committed to the third Fantastic Beasts film. So trying to do both The Flash and Fantastic Beasts 3, both Warner Bros. projects, would be somewhat of a logistical nightmare.
So it’s better to space things out and allow the two projects to breathe, rather than have them run concurrently. So this would allow Ezra Miller to suit up as both Credence Barebone and Barry Allen without there being a headache for either him or the studio. But it now begs the question of what The Crimes of Grindelwald has in store for Credence. Does this mean he makes it through the events of that film?
And with that in mind, are you excited for The Crimes of Grindelwald when it hits theaters in a month? Would you like to see more ties to the Harry Potter world? And what would you want to see in a potential third Fantastic Beasts film? Let us know in the comments below.
Fantstic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is directed by David Yates, written by J.K. Rowling, and stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Jude Law and Johnny Depp.
The film will zap its way into theaters on November 16, 2018.
