Is This Really The End Of the Johnny Depp Era?
Well, opinions vary and facts have not yet become certain but if you ask movie critics, the Johnny Depp era ended almost 10 years ago as the qualities of his movies degraded. Once, one of the actors whose films set critics and box office records alight, his recent projects have failed to impress and have reached mediocrity at best.
His role as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise was perhaps one of his only ‘superstar-class’ roles but the studios have forced him to resign from that too. Similarly, his role as the beloved Jack Sparrow has also been speculated to be over.

The acting talents, on-screen charisma, and presence of Johnny Depp have never been questioned but the events of his personal life have caused a decline in his stardom.
As the saying goes, the actor is made by the fans and Depp seems to have a lot of fans still left in his corner. So, the actor might have sustained a blow professionally, but he may be able to shake it off.
