"So I know as much as you do from the newspapers", he added. Warner Bros.is now recasting the role of Gellert Grindelwald following Depp's exit.

Mikkelsen has been featured in major films Casino Royale and Doctor Strange.

A combination of pictures shows USA actress Amber Heard (L) and her former husband United States actor Johnny Depp (R) arriving on the second day of Depp's libel action against News Group Newspapers (NGN), at the High Court in London, on July 8, 2020.

The libel case centred on whether an article published in The Sun, in which Depp was called a "wife beater", was libellous. In an elaborate statement on Instagram, the actor said that due to the current events related to the ongoing case against Amber Heard, Warner Bros asked him to resign.

Subsequently, the same judge denied Depp's appeal against the ruling, on the basis that he did not believe the appeal to have a "reasonable prospect of success".
