With Margot Robbie not starring as Jack Sparrow, Johnny Depp fans are thrilled yet behaving sarcastically about her loss. The fans have their finger crossed, hoping Johnny Depp would return as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of The Caribbean 6. Depp has been Jack Sparrow for all five of the POTC movie series so far and is expected to make his return for the next endeavor. Robbie was to star as Jack Sparrow’s daughter. The owners of the franchise had signed Margot Robbie in the next POTC movie, which was supposed to be female-led. However, the reactions of the fans were most probably the reason it got canceled.
Margot Robbie no longer starring in Pirates Reboot
Margot Robbie believes that the producers do not want to do the movie anymore as she said the movie is no longer in work with her in it. She revealed that they had an idea to develop a script that would have more females leading it. However, it somehow did not work out with the producers, leading to the end of Robbie’s journey with the franchise.
“Pirates of the Caribbean film, is dead, we had an idea and we were developing it for a while, ages ago, to have more of a female-led—not totally female-led, but just a different kind of story—which we thought would’ve been really cool, but I guess they don’t want to do it.” Margot Robbie said in a recent interview.
Seeing the news on Twitter, Johnny Depp fans have bombarded the social media platform with replies and re-tweets regarding the same. They have mockingly joked about being sad about the news. They even trolled Robbie for being canceled by Disney.

Fans have been tweeting and re-tweeting about it and it does not seem like they are stopping there. Many of them declared that they would not watch the movie if Depp does not return as Jack Sparrow. Also, they have been claiming that no one could replace him as the lead role as it is one of the main elements of the franchise that made it successful.
Margot Robbie is Out, Fans want Disney to bring back Johnny Depp
Margot Robbie getting out of the franchise could very well mean Johnny Depp getting back to the role. Although the producers have said that they won’t be taking Depp back in, at least not at this time, after the whole Depp v Heard debacle. But Depp’s fans are now justifying his advantage after winning the trial against his ex-wife.

Johnny Depp is considered the life of the Pirates of The Caribbean franchise and hopefully would join if offered the role by Disney again. But it should be kept in mind that Depp, during the defamation trial, said he would not go back to being Jack Sparrow for all the tea in China. Only time will tell what awaits this globally popular franchise.
