Like Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill: Other Actor Replacements That Were Controversial

Warner Bros is still in the eye of the storm because it replaced Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck as Superman Y Batman, respectively. The replacements were poorly taken by fans who are reluctant to change the actors of their favorite characters. This type of controversy is not new because there were other cases that gave much to talk about within the entertainment industry. Review the most important ones!

Actors who were replaced with controversy of their roles

Mads Mikkelsen by Johnny Depp

One of the latest and most controversial of all. The role of Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Animals 3 changed its interpreter after Warner Bros decided to fire Depp after the sentence of his trial with The Sun that concluded that he physically assaulted Amber Heard. Mikkelsen took responsibility and acknowledged that he could not ignore Johnny’s work: “There has to be a bridge between what Johnny did and what I am going to do. And at the same time, I also have to make it mine.”

Christopher Plummer por Kevin Spacey

The director of All the Money in the World, Ridley Scott, had to act quickly to find a replacement for Spacey after the multiple allegations of sexual harassment against him became known. The film was scheduled to premiere in January 2018 and in November 2017 the scandal exploded. The production prioritized the work of the entire team and changed the controversial House Of Cards actor in record time.

Alexandra Shipp by Zendaya

The protagonist of Euphoria was ready to star in 2014’s Aaliyah: Pincess of R&B, a biopic about the singer who died in 2001. However, the family of the character in question opposed the project, arguing that the production company was not their preference and that the The actress didn’t like her either. Finally, the film was carried out but following the requests of the relatives and that is why Shipp arrived as an artist.

Elizabeth Shue by Claudia Wells

One of the classics of the cinema like Back to the Future also underwent changes in its cast. Jennifer Parker’s interpreter in the first film was replaced in the third of the trilogy. The reasons for the modification were force majeure: Wells’s mother had been diagnosed with cancer in 1989, months before filming began on the latest films. Director Robert Zemeckis decided to hire Shue and even re-shot the first scene of the tape.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley por Megan Fox

The Transformers saga had an indisputable absence in his last film: Fox decided to leave the project after having starred in the first two films. What happened? There were serious problems with director Michael Bay. The actress left the production and had no qualms about shooting the filmmaker: she compared him to Napoleon and Hitler for his authoritarianism on the sets.
