It has been more than 2 months since the infamous trial of Amber Heard vs. Johnny Depp reached its conclusion. Stating during the trial that Johnny Depp’s career was over and no one is going to hire him, ex-wife Amber Heard finds herself surrounded by fans of the actor who want him cast as Mephisto in the MCU.
Johnny Depp to be cast as Mephisto, fans demand
For those of the unversed, Mephisto is an unofficial incarnation of Satan himself. Born in the darkness of the abyss, Mephisto has ruled the underworld that he calls “hell” or “hades”. The story of Mephisto starts in the Garden of Eden and involves modern characters like Thor and Ghost Rider in his tale. The character depicts evil in its truest form and therefore who is better than the Edward Scissorhands actor to portray a sociopath with a heart of gold?
Fans took to Twitter to rally around the actor and tried to grab the attention of Marvel Studios to make the actor an integral member of the MCU by casting him as Mephisto.

Amber Heard is the one who is really washed up. She destroyed her own career with her lies. Johnny Depp is rising to the top again. It is very possible he will appear in a Marvel movie in the years to come as said by Robert Downey Jr. #justiceforjohnnydepp #amberheardisfinished https://t.co/mPeKP13oE2

When Amber Heard caused Johnny Depp’s career to crash
Following the allegations of Johnny Depp allegedly abusing Amber Heard, the actor was removed as the iconic antagonist Gellert Grindlewald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise by WB. He was also removed as the titular character of Captain Jack Sparrow by the executives at Disney for not wanting to collaborate with a person with a tarnished image.
Following the removal, it was recently revealed by Mads Mikkelsen, the actor who replaced Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindlewald in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (2022) for the actor to come back. The Pirates of The Caribbean actor has however claimed that he will not be returning to Disney even if they are prepared to give them a sum of $300 million!
Since the trial ended, the actor has been gathering massive support from his fanbase and victims of abuse for what he had to go through. Johnny Depp will be seen as King Louis XV in the french movie La Favorite.
La Favorite is expected to release in 2023 in theaters across France (currently)
