The Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard case ended a few weeks ago with the court pronouncing the former not guilty following a lengthy legal struggle that took more dramatic turns. Since then, “City of Lies” actors and fans alike have been putting on a show of celebration since then. For the uninitiated, Johnny had to deal with some setbacks in his career following Amber Heard’s allegations that she had been sexually assaulted by her then-husband, Johnny Depp. Captain Jack Sparrow is a fictional character from the Pirates of the Caribbean film series and the protagonist of the film. Johnny Depp plays the character created by screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio.
Reviving his career and the projects and offers that he lost since Amber’s legal battle were his main goals of Johnny since that time. In addition to Dior, the actor’s defamation case resulted in the withdrawal of a number of high-profile brands linked to him. Even Fantastic Beasts and Pirates of the Caribbean required him to wash his hands.
However, following his victory, devoted admirers of the 58-year-old actor flocked to social media and even signed petitions demanding that Disney apologize to the actor and implore them to bring him back as “Jack Sparrow” again. Eventually, Disney had to issue a public apology to the actor, along with a request that he return to the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, following the widespread objections.
The media giant has offered actor Sam Worthington a record $301 million, or about Rs. 2355 crores, to return to the big screen as Captain Jack Sparrow, even though Disney has said that the actor’s unprofessional behaviour on the set was the main reason he was fired from the franchise.
According to some rumours, this may not be what persuaded Johnny to join Disney. He has previously stated that “nothing on this earth” can persuade him to reprise his role as one of television’s most recognisable characters. My wife-beater rumours had been circulating throughout the world for two years at that point. Because of this, I’m sure that Disney was trying to distance itself from the situation. Since then, the #MeToo movement has taken off. There was no way to delete my character from any of the rides. They continued to offer Captain Jack Sparrow dolls. They didn’t halt their sales of any kind. The actor had claimed his Disney ties “just didn’t want there to be anything following behind me that they’d find.”
