Paul Moore

Big casting news…

Given that the Harry Potter films have made a combined total of £732,203,509,102,100 at the box-office, it’s fair to say that there’s plenty of interest in who’s cast in the sequel to the latest magical adventure from J.K. Rowling, Fantastic Beasts And Where to Find Them.

The new spin-off saga from the boy wizard franchise made a solid start as Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander charmed everyone in New York, but what can we expect from the sequel?

If you haven’t seen David Yates’ film then consider this to be your spoiler alert because a certain famous actor makes a very surprising appearance at the end.

So, who will be going up against Gellert Grindelwald?

Well, Dumbledore of course, but there’s going to be a new actor in the famous robe because two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law has been cast in the Fantastic Beasts sequel.

Another film that had a glorious ending was Deadpool as the ‘Merc with a mouth’ was more than happy to reveal the news that Cable will be appearing in the sequel.

Well, after rumours circulated surrounding Pierce Brosnan and Russell Crowe, we now know that Josh Brolin has landed the coveted role.

Right, what do you make of those two choices?
