True, Warner Bros. came up with a cunning move.
The Fantastic Beasts triquel has not yet received an official name, and in general it looks like the franchise is being chased by setbacks. The second film, about the sinister crimes of Grindelwald (Johnny Depp), failed miserably at the box office, causing disapproval from both critics and viewers, but fans do not lose hope that the continuation of the story of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) will turn out much better …
The coronavirus pandemic also brought problems to the franchise, and Warner Bros. I had to deal with two key actors who became heroes of the scandalous chronicles. We are talking about Depp, whom Amber Heard accused of domestic violence and abuse, and Ezra Miller – many demanded to expel him from the franchise after an incident with an attack on a fan in Iceland. And although it later turned out that Johnny was slandered, litigation is still ahead.

Despite these unpleasant facts, on the eve of the insider Grace Randolph said on Twitter that both Depp and Miller are guaranteed to start filming in “Fantastic Beasts 3”, however, their scenes will be constructed in such a way that, if necessary, cut them out without prejudice to the plot … This will be required if the actors’ reputation cannot be fully restored by the time of the premiere. By the way, the insider also claims that Hurd herself, who is now accused of inappropriate treatment of Johnny, will still star in Aquaman 2.
HOWEVER they are shooting so that Depp & Heard’s roles can be decreased if bad press…

It is not yet known how true this information is, but the decision of Warner Bros. looks quite healthy. We will remind, the premiere of the triquel “Fantastic Beasts” is scheduled for November 11, 2021.
