Previously Mads mikkelsen He would have wanted to mislead us by denying his participation in Fantastic Beasts 3, as the dark wizard Grindelwald. However, his signing was confirmed days later, so the Danish actor – unable to hide again with alleged ignorance – this week shared a few words about what his version of the iconic character will be like.
In an interview with EW, Mikkelsen was asked how he plans to approach the role previously assumed by Johnny Depp in the first two films of the magical saga. Well, it’s going to be me, so that’s a difference.replied the actor jokingly, although he immediately added in a more serious tone:
No, this is the hard part. We are still working it out. There has to be a bridge between what Johnny did and what I’m going to do.. And at the same time, I also have to make it mine. But we also have to find some links [con la versión anterior del personaje] and some bridges so that it does not separate completely from what he has already masterfully achieved.
Recall that Warner Bros. asked Depp to resign after he lost a legal proceeding against the British newspaper The Sun, which in a 2018 article called him “a wife beater”, based on testimonies provided by his former partner Amber heard.
Although Mads Mikkelsen called the opportunity to step into Grindelwald’s shoes as “interesting” and “enjoyable,” he was equally aware of the drama surrounding his move to Fantastic Beasts.
“As for the work, it’s obviously super interesting and enjoyable,” commented the Cannes winner for The Hunt. “It’s also a surprise that it happened after what happened, which is super sad. I wish you both the best. They are sad circumstances. I hope they both return to the ring very soon.
With his participation in the Magic World of cinema, Mikkelsen expands his repertoire of multi-million dollar franchises in which he has been involved, also made up of the MCU (Doctor Strange) and Star Wars (Rogue One).
The third installment of Fantastic Animals, directed by David Yates, is scheduled to premiere in July 15, 2022.
