Disney has not been doing well among Pirates of the Caribbean fans lately, as the news of Johnny Depp getting replaced as the lead has filled the fans with rage.
Imagine going to the theatre to watch a Pirates of the Caribbean movie, and then finding out there’s no Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) to guide you through those adventures. What will you do then? Will you throw empty bottles at the screen? Or, will you take it all out on Twitter and make Disney shed some tears for the cruel act of omitting out the only thing you loved about the franchise?
- Depp banished from new Pirates of the Caribbean movies?
- Fans are furious over Johnny Depp’s absence.
- Johnny Depp’s virtual Hospital visit as Jack Sparrow.
Fans of POTC, or the fans of Captain Jack Sparrow (to be precise), have already taken to Twitter in the rage against Disney. Neither we and nor the fans can digest the fact that they won’t get to drool over Johnny Depp’s Oscar-worthy performance as a con-pirate. Thus, fans are marching towards Twitter against Disney.
Johnny Depp banished from new Pirates of the Caribbean movies?
Though Disney never made any official statement over the matter of banishing Johnny Depp from new movies in Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, it still has been well known.
Captain Jack Sparrow, played by Depp, has been the most crucial part of the last 5 Pirates of the Caribbean movies. To name them – Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), POTC: Dead Man’s Chest (2006), POTC: At World’s End (2007), POTC: On Stranger Tides (2011), POTC: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017).
However, since Johnny Depp got wrapped in legal troubles regarding the Domestic Abuse allegations by Amber Heard (ex-wife), the studio kept him away un-officially.
Disney announced two POTC movies in the franchise. One is Pirates of the Caribbean 6, a continuation of the storyline starring Karen Gillan in the lead (probably). And another, a female-led spin-off starring Margot Robbie. None of them has confirmed to have Jack Sparrow in any form.
Fans are furious over Johnny Depp’s absence.
Disney, trying to play safe, haven’t yet confirmed if Johnny Depp will be a part of any of the future Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Whenever fans asked, the creators, and the producer Jerry Bruckheimer, responded as being “Unsure” of it.
With several developments in the domestic abuse case in the past years, and Depp’s side emerging as stronger in defending and almost close to proving the allegations as a lie, fans hoped for his return.
However, Disney’s attitude has filled fans with rage. And several fans have tweeted their anger over POTC being made without Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). Fans have been showing their lack of interest in Pirates of The Caribbean franchise’s future in absence of Johnny Depp. Fans have crashed Twitter with tweets demanding Johnny Depp’s return.
Some fans showed their support to new POTC stars. But agreed that the franchise is nothing without Johnny Depp is Jack Sparrow’s skin.
Johnny Depp’s virtual Hospital visit as Jack Sparrow.
As per the reports from Movie Web, Johnny Depp recently made a virtual visit to a Hospital, dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean. Depp has been visiting young Jack Sparrow fans in hospitals for years to lighten their moods during their low time.
Just after the visit, Disney announced the spinoff POTC movie – not starring Depp. This got fans asking Disney how could they commit such treason with the actor who gave so much to the franchise.
Johnny Depp could still possibly return in Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, even if for a cameo. If not, the franchise is sure to be doomed. What do you guys think? Should Disney take the risk of making a POTC movie without Johnny Depp?
