Although Depp is exploring the French cinema, Johnson may have already found his next big hit. This may possibly lead to the franchise signing in the actor after kicking Depp out. Rumors of this had been circulating for a while now and even though fans may not be as happy about it, the possibility of the switch happening is endless.

Dwayne Johnson Could Replace Johnny Depp In Pirates Of The Caribbean

Pirates of the Caribbean was a franchise that was iconically known for Johnny Depp‘s Captain Jack Sparrow. The way he brought the character to life unmistakably made the pirate one of the most famous fictional characters. Due to the allegations of domestic abuse, Disney had not wasted a second before firing the actor in order to not be associated with him. Warner Bros. Discovery did the same with him for the Harry Potter franchise as he played Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

The actor has reportedly worked towards having a contractual deal with Disney in order to star in the franchise. He has been rumored to take up the hat and ride the seven seas with his crew, as Johnny Depp permanently puts his own aside. While Heard is still unsure of whether or not she would continue to play Mera in the DC Universe, Depp has confirmed that he will not be returning as Captain Jack Sparrow.
