Following his success in the highly televised defamation court case against ex-wife Amber Heard, Johnny Depp has become the ‘most-wanted’ person in Hollywood.
The internet is buzzing with memes and theories. Fans are happy with the turn of events as the world-famous Captain Jack Sparrow has been declared a winner in his legal fight against the Aquaman star.
After the conclusion of his trial, when the jury decided that Amber Heard had defamed him with her accusations, pro-Johnny Depp supporters couldn’t keep calm and went crazy with the hashtags. Every day there is a new trend on Twitter with his name.
From ‘Justice For Johnny Depp’ to ‘Johnny Depp Won‘, Twitter has seen thousands of tweets.
“Honestly, this verdict means so much more than #JusticeForJohnny; I want my sons to live in a world that stands up for them too. I want them to know if someone hurts them, they can speak up, and they won’t be laughed at.” – “Abu$e has no gender.” A fan wrote.
“Our captain, our king, we love you and have your back forever. We believe you, and thanks for your courage, for fighting for the truth.” Another passionate fan tweeted.
Last week a former Walt Disney executive told the People that there is a huge appetite for Johnny Depp after the court’s verdict.
“I absolutely believe post-verdict that Pirates is primed for rebooting with Johnny as Captain Jack back on board. There is just too much potential box-office treasure for a beloved character deeply embedded in the Disney culture. With [producer] Jerry Bruckheimer riding high on the massive success of Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick, there is a huge appetite for bringing back bankable Hollywood stars in massively popular franchises.”
He said that it is highly possible that Disney might contact the actor again to feature him in another Pirates movie!
With the ongoing Johnny Depp frenzy, it can be seen that the actor will most likely make a comeback on the big screen soon. And this time, it won’t be easy for the producers to simply reach out to him and convince him to be a part of their film.
“They will have to beg the icon after what they have done to him.” A fan stated.
While talking to The Mirror, a PR expert, Alexandra Villa, who’s been working with Oscar-nominated stars and movie directors for almost two decades, said that Johnny’s victory is an indication that his career will skyrocket once again.
“There is an argument that Johnny is now once again one of the world’s most bankable stars,” she said. “His career is going to skyrocket.”
“He not only has the heart of the consumer in his hands, but he may also be able to pick and choose some of the biggest movies coming out in the next few years,” she added. “He could become the world’s highest-paid actor ever.”
She further said, “Johnny has made Hollywood studios billions of dollars over the past few decades. That is why he has 40 years of work and projects beloved by the audience. An example, I feel, in the public’s support is his fragrance Sauvage selling record amounts.”
Villa said that after the jury’s verdict, the TV channels are already showing the Pirates movies.
“They are already playing Pirates Of The Caribbean movies in the US again, one right after another.”
“In the eyes of the majority of the public, he has suffered and exposed his life of misery and challenges in his relationships at times.”
“Johnny had to put his whole life out for public scrutiny, good and bad, but he did it not for the money but for his reputation to be restored. He also did this for his kids to clear his name in public.”
“He was the golden boy for Disney when the Pirates films made billions, so never say never. At the end of the day, money talks and profits talk.”
The PR expert concluded.
