- Johnny Depp’s rumored return to screen
- Future of the franchise
First, the Pirates of the Caribbean Franchise roped in Skyfall Star Javier Bardem to play the villain in the sixth installment. And now the question of who will replace Johnny Depp has a definite answer. Jared Leto looks increasingly likely as the man to replace Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow in Pirates 6.
Zac Efron’s name made the headlines as he was rumored to be taking up Jack Sparrow’s role. But neither did that go down well with fans nor was the actor able to reach an agreement with the Studio. So, Zac Efron not replacing Johnny Depp, has now opened up space for Leto.
Disney considers Jared Leto as the perfect Johnny Depp replacement
Sources suggest that Disney considers Jared Leto as the perfect replacement to take over the character. Jared Leto has uncanny similarities to the veteran star’s acting style that he is also known as Johnny Depp lite. Fans are backing Leto to replicate the cockiness of Jack Sparrow.
According to reports, Studio fell out with Jared Leto earlier but they don’t seem to have many options. Javier Bardem is supposed to portray some sort of a ghost but he is unlikely to be the only actor that Pirates franchise looks towards to make up the lost ground after having to cut loose Johnny Depp.
Depp’s career has gone for a toss along with his life
Johnny Depp is suffering the hardest time of his life and his future is unforeseeable. Though he received overwhelming support recently as #justiceforjohnnydepp was trending on twitter. There is a clear effort to positively change in his image. So, the return of Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow is very much a possibility
The studio can’t take the risk of going all-in with a huge budget as they have no idea how it will turn out. Are fans ready for someone else as Jack Sparrow? A majority of fans still hope for Depp’s return and belive that Depp will win the legal battle with Amber Heard.
Depp as Joker?
Rumors broke in early March that Johnny Depp might play “The Joker” in Batman Trilogy and that could be his return to the big screen. Joaquin Phoenix won the Oscar for the Todd Philip’s The Joker but WB has a different plan.

Johnny Depp seems to be only one capable to bring the craziness to life. From being considered jobless and broke to considered for iconic roles, Depp’s personal and professional life taking so many twists and turns that no one can even speculate what future holds for him.
