Johnny Depp has become synonymous with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, particularly for his portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow. Despite having other outstanding performances, Depp is best recognized for his extraordinary portrayal of the cunning pirate. Fans eagerly anticipated his return for the sixth installment of the film series, even after Disney notably abandoned him in the past. However, recent reports suggest that fans may have given up on Pirates of the Caribbean 6 altogether.

Following Depp's victory in a defamation lawsuit against his former wife, Amber Heard, rumors began circulating that he might reconcile with Disney and return for Pirates of the Caribbean 6. However, the latest reports indicate that this is highly unlikely. According to @MyTimeToShineH on X, Disney does want Depp to come back, but not in the lead role.

The Pirates of the Caribbean saga has always been led by Captain Jack Sparrow, so the update suggests that if Depp were to return, either his character would be diminished or another character would take the spotlight. Additionally, there are reports that the sixth installment will be set partly in Haiti, with a Haitian female protagonist.

If Depp's character isn't in the spotlight, the sixth Pirates movie would likely lack the excitement and charm fans expect. As a result, many fans have given up hope for Pirates of the Caribbean 6.

During his defamation trial, Depp acknowledged Disney's abandonment and stated that he wouldn't consider returning to the franchise, even if offered a significant sum of money. Despite this, rumors persisted, fueling fans' hopes of seeing Depp reprise his beloved role. However, the recent update about sidelining his character has disappointed fans.

In response, fans have expressed their disappointment and skepticism about the future of the franchise without Depp as the lead. Many believe that the decision to remove Depp's character will lead to the movie's failure.

Based on these fan reactions, it seems that bringing Johnny Depp back as Captain Jack Sparrow is the only way to save the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Otherwise, as fans have predicted, the franchise's future may be in jeopardy.
