Petition to Bring Back Johnny Depp to Fantastic Beasts Moves Towards 150k, as Fans Want Amber Heard Fired

Published on November 10th, 2020 | Updated on November 10th, 2020 | By FanFest

Fantastic Beasts 3 saw the departure of Johnny Depp, as Grindelwald, as a result of Warner Bros asking the star to retire himself from the role. Amid these controversial developments, some are reporting that Warner Bros may also reduce Amber Heard’s role in Aquaman 2 as well.  However, fans are now petitioning for Depp to return to the film and fans are also demanding Heard be fired from Aquaman 2.

Despite all of the evidence against Heard, the UK court ruled in her favor. This was a terrible look for Depp, which puts a label on him as an allegedly abusive spouse (again, despite most of the evidence). Depp will likely now encounter more problems finding work. Fans believe that Heard should encounter the same.

The petition, which was created just 4 days ago, was seeking 150,000 signatures and is already nearing that amount.  Here’s what the person who created the petition said:

Johnny Depp was asked by Warner Bros to resign and leave his role of Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts 3 movie. This happened because of the verdict of his case with “The Sun” tabloid that was completely unfair. We want him back! Warner Bros should listen to the public or we will boycott the movie!!!

These types of petitions rarely work and it typically takes something much greater to get a studio to change their mind, such as James Gunn’s rehiring for Guardians of the Galaxy 3 or getting Warner Bros to release the Snyder Cut of Justice League.

Warner Bros announced that they will be recasting Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts film series without any announcement about Heard’s participation in Aquaman 2. At the moment, Heard will reprise her part as Mera in Aquaman 2, but according to insider Grace Randolph, the creator of the Beyond The Trailer channel on YouTube, Warner Bros is exploring ways that they can reduce her role.

Warner Bros released a statement, saying:

“Johnny Depp will depart the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ franchise. We thank Johnny for his work on the films to date. ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ is currently in production, and the role of Gellert Grindelwald will be recast. The film will debut in theaters worldwide in the summer of 2022.”

J.K. Rowling, creator of Harry Potter, released her own public statement that said:

“Based on our understanding of the circumstances, the filmmakers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting but genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies.”

The Wizarding World has been under a lot of fire the past year or so, with Rowling under fire due to a series of transphobic comments that have turned fans against her. As well, Fantastic Beasts 3 has been severely delayed by COVID-19, star Ezra Miller was caught on camera choking a fan, and now Depp has had to step down.

However, fans have taken Depp’s side after also being dumped from Pirates of the Caribbean and now departing Fantastic Beasts. Both Depp and Heard have been simultaneously viewed as abusers and victims, depending on which actor fans have been rooting for.

Amber Heard is still involved in Aquaman 2, which has equally angered a lot of fans, as they believe Warner Bros isn’t equally handing out punishment. The internet is demanding that she also resign.

  1. Johnny Depp is not guilty at all. And also one of the best actors ever. I’m with Johnny ❤️❤️

  2. I have been a fan of jonny since I was a little girl I’m 28 now I would love for him to be in up coming movies as the future holds please get the abusive lady out of office he is my biggest fan an wouldn’t even hurt a fly thank u

  3. I cant comprehend how he lost that case other than the fact that the judge was CLEARLY paid off, and the fact that he has ties with her lawyers has a lot to do with everything.
    Amber Heard is a disgusting person and everyone who’s helped her get away with this can burn in hell with her.

  4. I think it is disgusting that Amber Heard had not been axed, as women who went through domestic abuse I’m ashamed of how Johnny Depp has been treated. Support him not discard him

  5. He’s a kind sweet man and all the evidence points to her sooooo if he goes witch he shouldn’t she should as well

  6. Johnny Depp is an absolutely amazing actor and definitely needs to be brought back. No one else has his pizzazz

  7. I think it’s not fair at all that he had to resign and not her? Just cut her hours. Whats the difference? She had a little tiny spot on her face but makin it look like he beat her. I know what a spot and beating look like. The ones in court in london who took her side are a bunch of idiots! And money grabbers That’s all I can say about them, they been paid off by her. But it’s his choice at the end of the day. Then I would understand that I wouldn’t want to work with her in the same studio spreading lies around about me either. I think he’s great, he’s not a wife beater at all. So what’s why I’m signing this

  8. Johnny Depp is a good man I don’t believe he deserve to get fired from one job that brings us all joy because one female he decided to date wanted to make him look crazy.!
