Rogue One and Doctor Strange star Mads Mikkelsen looks terrifying as Johnny Depp’s Grindelwald replacement for Fantastic Beasts 3.
The shocking news came last week that Johnny Depp will be leaving the Fantastic Beasts franchise as its villain, Gellert Grindelwald. The announcement came after Depp lost a recent libel case against The Sun. Shortly after, it was revealed that Casino Royale star Mads Mikkelsen is now in talks to replace Depp as the dark wizard.
Filming on Fantastic Beasts 3 is already underway in the United Kingdom with Johnny Depp having some scenes as Grindelwald for the sequel already under his belt. With the recent release date shift, Mads Mikkelsen now has some time to get comfortable as the new Grindelwald of the Harry Potter prequel series. In light of the recent Fantastic Beasts news, BossLogic has created a stunning new piece of art that depicts Mikkelsen as Grindelwald for the upcoming sequel.
