It was revealed a few months back that Johnny Depp had been asked to step down from the role of Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3. He was then replaced by Mads Mikkelsen, which casting-wise, I think he’s perfect for the role.
However, I wasn’t happy with the way Warner Bros. Pictures handled the whole ordeal. It’s now being rumoured that a Grindelwald series might be in the works for HBO Max. This news comes after it was revealed Warner Bros. was thinking of making a Harry Potter series.
Mads Mikkelsen rumoured to be starring in a Grindelwald HBO Max series
Here’s what We Got This Covered had to say about a Grindelwald series starring Mads Mikkelsen being in the works for HBO Max:
It seemed unthinkable just a couple of years ago that the Wizarding World would generate so much negativity, but that’s hardly going to stop the studio from monetizing the property, and we’ve now heard from our sources – the same ones who told us the Joker was getting a new look in Justice League long before it was confirmed – that discussions have taken place over a limited series focused on Mikkelsen’s Grindelwald.
