Featuring franchise stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Jude Law, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol and Ezra Miller, Fantastic Beasts 3 is scheduled to be released on 15 July, 2022 following Depp's departure.

Do you think Mads Mikkelsen is the apt choice to replace Johnny Depp as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3?

It has been announced that Hannibal actor Mads Mikkelsen has been cast to take on the role of Dark Wizard Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3.

Mikkelsen, 55, who is known for his role as serial killer Hannibal Lecter in the USA television series "Hannibal, ' will play the evil wizard in the spinoff movie from 'Harry Potter" author JK Rowling.

Then came the confirmation from Warner Bros. that they're actively looking to recast Grindelwald with reports suggesting Mads Mikkelsen of Hannibal fame as the reported frontrunner. "He had been the top choice to replace Johnny Depp, who had played the role in the first two installments but exited after losing a major libel suit in the United Kingdom".

Heard, 34, has repeatedly denied the accusation, telling Entertainment Weekly: "Paid rumours and paid campaigns on social media don't dictate (casting decisions) because they have no basis in reality".

The third "Fantastic Beasts" installment is in production outside of London.

"So I know as much as you do from the newspapers", he added.

Danish actor Mikkelsen, 55, rose to prominence as shady banker Le Chiffre opposite Daniel Craig in 2006 Bond film Casino Royale. After losing his libel suit against a British publication, who called him a "wife beater" in regards to his troubled marriage with Amber Heard, Depp revealed that he was asked by Warner Bros.to resign from his role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts, which the 57-year-old agreed upon. Now, Depp must pay £628,000 (around $840,000) in legal costs to The Sun, and while he can bring his grievances to the Court of Appeals, it seems unlikely he'll succeed.

In the Harry Potter universe, Grindelwald is an immensely powerful, evil wizard, who is regarded as second only to Voldemort.
