I loved Mikkelsen in Hannibal. He was fantastic. So I’m cautiously optimistic about this casting. It’s weird that this is the third actor to portray the same character in as many movies, but in a way, it makes sense, because Grindlewald would be smart enough to constantly keep changing his appearance so as to not get caught.
You’re completely and entirely wrong. There’s no way on God’s green pile of money that Warner Brothers would cancel an HP franchise film over casting. If he refused to resign they would just fire him in a ruder way. Then he’d go to court to make sure they paid his contract, and they’d either pay out, settle or counter-sue.
