Ok, we admit, between one thing and another we didn’t get the chance to report this, so apologies, but we figured it’s still worth looking at…
With the first Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them movie hitting in less that two weeks, we’re hearing that Johnny Depp himself will be in the second movie and not just that but we’re hearing that if you pay close attention he may be in the first movie too.
Now, while nothing is being said by Warner Bros on who Depp will be playing, we’re wondering if he might be Dumbedore or Grindlewald in the movie as we’ve heard that both characters will have a very small part – perhaps just a mention – in the first movie (more on this here).
So there you have it… do you think Depp will be a welcome part of the Potter-verse?
Let us know in the comments and social pages, guys
