    It's pretty obvious Johnny is getting over it and to be honest I don't like him as much as I did a few years ago but I still think theres potential in the pirates of the Caribbean franchise (I mean, zombie sharks wow)

    My first thought was Robert Downey Jnr but I think that's too predictable

    No. Depp is Pirates. Without him they should just retire the franchise.

    They will just do a prequel with young Jack Sparrow and younger actor.

    It was more enjoyable before they let him take over the whole show.

    Jared Leto is probably looking for a new franchise anyways...

    You might have to reboot after Depp is done.

    People love his Jack Sparrow.

    The reboot might be less successful but the movies will probably still pull in 750-900 m globally quite easily.

    Jack should be used a framing device, for lack of a better term. The movie should be about the people around him.

    Well the best movie was the first one, and by quite a bit if you ask me.

    Nope. Jack Sparrow IS this franchise.

    It's tricky because it's such a part of Depp especially his personal life. Heck he's been dressing up like Sparrow, with the necklaces and such, and an aging rock roadie, for the past 15 years.

    It's like how the public is so attached to Downey as Tony Stark that a recast would be dumb at this point.

    I'd watch a movie about Barbossa and the other Pirate Lords.

    I god, I just saw they de-aged him as well.

    I guess Ezra Miller was busy.

    Without Jack Sparrow the franchise would be 'Young Blacksmiths of the Caribbean' or 'Governor's Spoiled Daughters of the Caribbean'. No one would want to watch that **** when you can already see it in every average historical drama. Give me pirates, not family dramas.

    Heh, it's probably lucky the internet wasn't around in the early days of James Bond or people would have sworn you couldn't do any more after Connery.

    I would like that. I was actually thinking it would be cool to see Naome Harris' and Penelope Cruz' character return.

    I have to agree

    Oh my gosh Ezra is a wonderful choice!

    This

    The Pirates series lost it's appeal and quality the moment it became about Sparrow's character.
    That's why each movie is worst then the last, and that is why it has everything to fail in the long run...or not so long.

    Only way they could continue it without Jack Sparrow is if they manage to create another character just as compelling and just as appealing to the masses.
