At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne).
Rowling, for her part, released a statement defending Depp last December, noting that "the inability to speak openly to fans about this issue has been hard, frustrating and at times painful", but after many conversations, she remained "genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies". His selection for the role was met with mixed reactions from fans after allegations of physical abuse surfaced from his former wife Amber Heard.
Speaking to Collider, Depp said that he enjoyed playing the character, and the freedom the world allows him to explore characters.
Depp also talked more generally about how he came by the role, and what we can expect from the character. She would not stand up if she didn't know the truth. I spoke to a few producers and the director and to J.K. and had long conversations basically about the Grindelwald character. The possibilities in that world are wide open, so you can really try anything. The thing that hurt me is being presented as something that you're really as far away from as you could possibly get, you know?
Depp then casually dropped the fact that he's slated to appear in the next film, saying "So it was a gas and I look forward to the next installment, which I think we start the middle of next year". "He's not a fun character; he's not amusing".
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is scheduled to hit the theatres on 16 November. Depp's commitment to the next Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel makes sense within the context of the series and the history of the franchise.
In the same interview, Depp addressed another (way less personal) controversy - how the film would portray young Dumbledore's (played by Jude Law) sexuality.
