Is there already a new Jack Sparrow for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’? The actor who could replace Johnny Depp

Although Johnny Depp was one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood, the scandal involving Amber Heard’s allegations of alleged domestic violence cost him his place in major projects such as the Pirates of the Caribbean saga.

Given this, it is rumored that actor Austin Butler could be the one to take the role of Captain Jack Sparrow in Disney’s reboot of the film.

Austin Butler could be the new Jack Sparrow in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’

Over the past few days, Disney has previewed some projects, creating high expectations among fans.

The rumor that ‘Dune 2’ actor Austin Butler could replace Johnny Depp as the new Jack Sparrow has been causing the biggest stir and although this has yet to be officially confirmed, it was reported by ‘The DisInsider’, which is why some media already took it as truth.

Fans of the epic film applauded Disney’s choice and others are demanding Johnny Depp’s return after the high-profile trial in which the court ruled in his favor.

Rumors link Austin Butler to other Disney projects

The actor, known for his recent turn as Elvis Presley, has also been linked to the live action Hercules, although there is no official confirmed information on this.

Why Johnny Depp Won’t Be In ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ Anymore?

Johnny Depp’s departure from “Pirates of the Caribbean” came in 2018 after Amber Heard wrote an opinion piece on domestic violence. Although he did not directly mention Depp, it was learned that the allegations were against him. Disney made the decision to remove Depp from “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Fantastic Beasts,” in addition to losing other projects. However, in 2022, Depp sued Amber Heard for defamation and won the case, receiving $15 million in damages.

Seeing that he was innocent of the charges, Disney tried to renegotiate with him, but the actor revealed to the ‘Daily Mail’ that he had no intention of working with the said company again after not only being let go at Disney, but also receiving bad reviews , so he assured that he would not play Jack Sparrow again, even if it meant forgoing the $20 million payment for the sixth installment of the saga. Despite this, there are rumors that Disney is still considering him to play his iconic character in a spin-off series.

When was the last time we saw Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow?

The actor played the pirate captain in 2017 for the last time in “Salazar’s Revenge”, which, although it did not repeat the box-office success of the previous parts and made the studios rethink the future of the saga, collected 800 million dollars from dollars.

In 2023, Sean Bailey, one of the executives of the company, revealed to “The New York Times” that there were plans for a new sequel and until now, 5 years after the last film, there are strong rumors that the production will be stopped for the 6th part of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” story.

This actress could also have been Johnny Depp’s replacement

After the possibility of Johnny Depp’s return was withdrawn, rumors began that the main character could be played by a woman and until a few months ago there was a strong rumor that the replacement would be an actress from the award-winning series ‘The Bear’ named Ayo Edebiri, who she would play Anne. However, this information was not confirmed by Disney either.

Fans are waiting for the latest information to be confirmed that Austin Butler will be the new pirate captain Jack Sparrow and can’t wait to see what the future holds for this iconic franchise.
