What Are You A Wizard

I'm not sure if I even feel like covering the Fantastic Beasts movies anymore now that J.K. Rowling's proven herself such a ghastly crumb of a person -- and let's be honest they were totally forgettable anyway -- but I admit I am intrigued by the news that Mads Mikkelsen is rumored to be replacing Johnny Depp (speaking of ghastly) as the big bad (and I might mention, homosexual) of the series, Gellert Grindenwald. A lot of people (myself included) thought they'd just go back to Colin Farrell -- Farrell was in the first Fantastic Beasts film...

... and spent a lot of time being molesty with Ezra Miller (god I love that gif), until that film ended with his big revelation being that he was really a hideous Johnny Depp underneath. One shudders! Must be Farrell's busy or not interested -- either way, Mikkelsen is supposedly "in early talks" for the role, which has him playing the evil ex-lover of Young Dumbledore, played by Jude Law in a series of ever-tightening tweed trousers. 

So... the Fantastic Beasts films do have their draws, I'll admit it. But they're never going to "go there" with Dumbledore and Grindenwald it seems, and J.K. Rowling is trash, so the little I was caring has sloughed off a good portion of itself. We'll see, I guess.
