In Warner They have decided to bet everything on the franchises to recover from the delicate situation they are currently going through. It has long been clear that Superman he’s set to star in a solo movie again and now we’ve learned that the studio is keen to make more Harry Potter movies, but not Fantastic Beasts.
David Zaslavcurrent CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, has been the one who has confirmed that the studio is looking forward to seeing “if we can do something with JK Rowling from ‘Harry Potter“From now on. Everything points to more movies or even some television series, but he also wanted to make it clear that there is currently no project in progress in this universe.
That assumes that Warner has been loaded ‘Fantastic Beasts 4’ from your project list, being paralyzed. In addition, nothing suggests that it will be a priority for Warner after the box office failure of ‘The Secrets of Dumbledore’. The initial plan was always for that franchise to have five films, but it will most likely end up staying with the three already released.
There’s always the option of Rowling forcing that saga to end if Warner wants her to agree to do more Harry Potter stuff. There also arises a serious problem, and that is that Daniel Radcliffe has made it clear on several occasions that he has no interest in reprising the character beyond an adaptation of ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ when Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and he’s the right age, never right now.
They can always sign another actor, but I don’t think that in the studio they see that with good eyes, especially after the controversy over the departure of Johnny Depp and the signing of Mads Mikkelsen for ‘Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets’.
Let’s not forget either the controversy that has accompanied Rowling in recent years, which leads us to think that what would have been a safe bet before is now extremely complicated. All in all, the only sure thing is that Warner wants to squeeze more franchises out of him, but with Harry Potter it may not be possible.
