Johnny Depp in ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Films

As we told you yesterday, Johnny Depp will be joining the Harry Potter world for the ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ sequel as well as a cameo in the first film which comes out November 17th. He will be playing Gellert Grindelwald (former friend/crush of Albus Dumbledore). Director, David Yates, also confirmed that a younger Dumbledore will also be in the second film, but no word yet as to who will play the legendary wizard.

“The whole principal of casting the movie was go with the best actor. Go for the most inspired, interesting, right fit for that character. And as we approached Grindelwald we thought, ‘Who’s going to take this in an interesting direction?’ In this business, it’s a weird old business. You’re brilliant one week, people are saying odd things the next, you go up and down. But no one takes away your pure talent. Johnny Depp is a real artist. He’s created several characters who have really resonated in our popular culture. He’s a really brilliant, brilliant actor. We were excited about seeing what he would do with this guy, the character. He’s fearless; he’s imaginative; he’s ambitious. We thought he would do something fun and special. So we went for him, purely on that selfish basis. We don’t care if he’s famous or not famous. We just know he’s interesting.”

Ben Affleck and Joe Manganiello in The Batman

Ben Affleck is already set to star and direct the next Batman film, The Batman, but who will take on Batman as the “bad guy”. Well if you haven’t hear already, the antagonist will be none other than Joe Manganiello. Manganiello will be playing the villainous Deathstroke and is very excited about the film.

“When I met Ben we sat down and we talked about, you know, the role. We talked about the movie. His take is a fresh take but I think the audience is going to be surprised. Because it’s a road that no one’s really gone down that’s completely integral to, you know, who Batman is. And I think it’s gonna be refreshing but at the same time completely familiar. But it’s going to take this franchise in a direction that I think a lot of people are going to be really happy about. It’s going to be gritty and action packed and cerebral and all of those elements that people love about Batman.”
