In terms of a prolific career, Johnny Depp is not exactly going through his best moment after the trial against Amber Heard. His relationship with women is still in question, especially after the trial documents were unsealed by fans recently. Many different aspects of Johnny Depp’s personality were uncovered there, one of them is his attitude towards women.
His behavior towards women has always been questionable, especially the passive-aggressive way in which he tries to protect them. He fails to realize that this over protective behavior only perpetuates the exact same behavior women have fought against for over a century.
Johnny Depp rejected a female villain in the film.
According to script writer Terry Rossio, Johnny Depp demanded script changes in the fifth installment of the ‘Pirates’ franchise. He didn’t want to fight against a woman in the film, he didn’t want the villain to be a woman in the movie. This script writer was eventually fired from the movie and Jeff Nathanson was the one who penned ‘Salazar’s Revenge’ with Javier Bardem as the villain.
No woman was seen in the script as the villain per Johnny Depp’s request. Depp claims he simply didn’t want to make the new film feel repetitive but his behavior towards women opens a whole new can of worms. At this point, it’s hard to tell what his intentions truly are but he remains adamant he will never be part of the ‘Pirates’ franchise ever again.
