Johnny Depp won the defamation trial against his ex-wife a few weeks ago. With this end result, many were hoping that the actor will return as Captain Jack Sparrow.
Following his grueling six-week trial, the jury ultimately sided with Depp as they expressed the way Amber Heard made them uncomfortable with her crocodile tears.
Lawyers for Johnny Depp speak out on the rumors
Thus far, the rumors spread that Johnny Depp will be returning as Captain Jack Sparrow is false. The report read that Johnny was offered a $300 million contract to play the character as well as money donated to a charity of his choice.
Unfortunately, these reports have been slashed and reported to be false as the lawyers for Johnny Depp shared that Jonny vowed under oath that he will not return to the franchise after the defamation lawsuit.
To date, a rep for Johnny Depp told NBC that “This is made up” and that Disney and the actor are not in talks about his character being revived again.
News on Captain Sparrow returning a hoax
Presently, some believed that Captain Jack Sparrow would be getting his own film or series about his childhood. There have been some talks about Margot Robbie allegedly joining this project but this was also reported to be false.
Right now, Margot Robbie is filming her latest project Barbie which will be released sometime in 2023. The actress will play the real-life material girl alongside Ryan Gosling.
So far, many fans have been amped up at the thought of Depp returning to the franchise again. This is sadly not true. Hopefully, the actor will return to the screens sometime soon.
