Is Johnny Depp Returning for Pirates of the Caribbean 6?

At this point, it all remains uncertain.

It all started with the op-ed by Amber Heard that claimed she was a victim of domestic abuse and all fingers pointed toward her then-husband, Johnny Depp. Johnny’s acting career plummeted since then and it got so bad that even Disney kicked him out of his most successful movie, Pirates of the Caribbean.

However, Johnny clapped back and sued Amber for defamation and as the trial continues, many pieces of evidence have surfaced that are claiming that it was Johnny who was the real victim of the domestic abuse by Amber.

With how new revelations keep surfacing often in support of Johnny, it makes you wonder if that means something about his return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Well here is everything we know about it so far:

Fans Want Johnny Back

It’s a no-brainer for almost every fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies that a major portion of the credit for the success and earnings of these movies goes to the fabulous portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow by Depp. Most of the fans are claiming and calling out Disney for kicking Johnny out without even investigating things first.

There have been two major petitions at change.org calling for Disney to rehire Johnny. One petition happened in 2018 which now has over 800, 000 signs, and one in 2020 which has approx. 700, 000 signatures.

Johnny Doesn’t Want to Come Back

Through the intense defamation that Johnny’s acting career went through, the actor openly claimed that he won’t ever return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise during the defamation trial. The actor, however, revealed that he certainly had plans to keep playing the character of Jack Sparrow until the franchise ended.

He said during his testimony: “My feeling was that these characters should be able to have their proper goodbye. There’s a way to end a franchise like that… I planned on continuing until it was time to stop.”

POTC Producer Won’t Rule Out Depp’s Return

The producer of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Jerry Bruckheimer, revealed in an interview that they haven’t completely ruled out the chances of Depp’s return as Jack Sparrow in the franchise. During an interview with The Times, Jerry was asked about Margot Robbie’s appearance in the 6th POTC movie.

He said: “Yes. We’re talking to Margot Robbie. We are developing two Pirates scripts — one with her, one without”. However, when asked about the return of Depp to the franchise, he replied: “Not at this point[, but] the future is yet to be decided.”

This basically means the Producer at least has not given up on the return of Johnny and let’s be honest here, there’s no way the franchise is making that much money without Johnny’s fabulous portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow.
