After the news broke that Johnny Depp was instructed to step down from his role in Fantastic Beasts 3, fans weren't at all happy.

                                  But now, it seems his career could be taking a different turn entirely...

                                  Could things finally be turning around for Johnny Depp?

                                  As you will all be aware, the Kentucky-born actor has been embroiled in a highly publicized domestic abuse scandal with his ex-girlfriend, Amber Heard, for the last 4 years.

                                  At first, this coupling seemed to be at the start of a promising relationship.

                                  After meeting on the set of The Rum Diary in 2011, the actor started dating Texan actress and model, Amber Heard, shortly after calling it quits with his long-term partner, Vanessa Paradis.

                                  Initially, the pair seemed perfect for each other.

                                  Johnny and Amber enjoyed a happy couple of years together, and would regularly attend red-carpet events as a couple, arm-in-arm and seemingly madly in love.

                                  They announced their engagement in 2014...

                                  And, not ones to waste any time, hastily tied the knot just one year later in February 2015.

                                  However, it was here when things started to go a little ship-shaped.

                                  Their honeymoon period was rather short-lived as, just months after their marriage, Johnny reportedly suffered a hand injury as a result of "smashing bottles and windows" during a heated argument with his wife.

                                  For the next year, various reports of abuse between the pair continued to surface...

                                  So it came as no shock when Amber filed for divorce in March 2016, just fifteen months after the couple had initially exchanged their "I do"s.

                                  At first, the divorce seemed unsuspicious...

                                  With many news outlets reporting that Amber had cited "irreconcilable differences" while filing the divorce petition.

                                  But, only a few months into their separation...

                                  via: Getty

                                  Amber filed a restraining order against Johnny, claiming that he had previously assaulted her.

                                  It was a big allegation to make...

                                  via: Getty

                                  So people were confused when Amber retracted her allegations just one day before the hearing was due to be held.

                                  But this didn't stop the world from turning against Johnny.

                                  via: Getty

                                  Amber had alleged that the actor had hit her on several occasions, and even provided video footage of him flinging a glass of wine across the room in a fit of rage.

                                  And, in 2018, the actress penned an article for The Washington Post where she opened up about her experience with domestic abuse and violence.

                                  via: Getty

                                  Though she didn't explicitly name Johnny in her op-ed, she did allude to the time period when, “two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out."

                                  There was an outpour of support for Amber...

                                  via: Getty

                                  Who was even made the American Civil Liberties Union's "Ambassador for Women's Issues".

                                  However, there was a sudden twist in the tale.

                                  via: Getty

                                  Last year, Johnny filed a $50-million defamation case against Amber and presented evidence that he was the one on the receiving end of the abuse, not the other way around.

                                  Shockingly, the actor alleged that he was the victim all along.

                                  via: Getty

                                  Johnny's defamation lawsuit read: “The op-ed [Amber's article] depended on the central premise that Ms. Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Mr. Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her."

                                  The lawsuit also states that all of Amber’s claims were “categorically and demonstrably false"...

                                  via: Getty

                                  And listed down incidents of Amber’s alleged abuse since the start of their marriage, including punching and kicking, as well as staging her attacks.

                                  The allegations are difficult to read.

                                  via: Getty

                                  "She hit, punched and kicked me. She also repeatedly and frequently threw objects into my body and head, including heavy bottles, soda cans, burning candles, television remote controls and paint thinner cans, which severely injured me." His lawsuit read.

                                  And, to tarnish the actress' reputation and credibility even further...

                                  via: Getty Images

                                  Audio obtained by the Daily Mail was released that heard her admitting to attacking Johnny.

                                  As per the audio clip, she could also be heard taunting him...

                                  via: Getty

                                  "You are such a baby. Grow the f*** up, Johnny. You poke an animal enough, it is eventually, it doesn't matter how friendly it is, it's not cool," Amber can be heard saying.

                                  The case was grueling.

                                  via: Getty

                                  And, in the last few months, Johnny has been in court recently for his libel case against The Sun newspaper - whom he was suing over a 2018 article in which he was described as a "wife-beater."

                                  The pair were in court as part of the 3-week long trial.

                                  While in court, both parties played pretty dirty, revealing compromising photographs of each other which have blown everything out of the water, yet again. And of course with the evidence came more allegations.

                                  But last month, it was confirmed that things didn't go Johnny's way.

                                  It was announced that the actor lost the controversial case against the newspaper and editor Dan Wootton.

                                  He now has to pay substantial costs to the newspaper group.

                                  "The Sun has stood up and campaigned for the victims of domestic abuse for over twenty years," said a spokesperson.

                                  "Domestic abuse victims must never be silenced and we thank the Judge for his careful consideration and thank Amber Heard for her courage in giving evidence to the court."

                                  The trial has been one of the biggest libel trials ever.

                                  And, despite profusely denying all the allegations against him...

                                  Johnny found his career taking a hit as a result of the on-going scandal.

                                  Throughout the case, fewer and fewer directors have been hiring him for roles...

                                  And his appearance in J.K Rowling's Fantastic Beasts sequel, The Crimes of Grindelwald,?was heavily criticized.

                                  And, in 2018, he was dropped from his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow.

                                  In a career-shattering announcement just 4 days after Amber's damning article, Disney announced that the actor would no longer be a part of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

                                  Though they didn't directly cite Amber's abuse allegations...

                                  via: Getty

                                  It was widely assumed that Disney, who has earned over $4.5 billion at the box office from the Pirates franchise, were trying to distance themselves from the actor and the scandal surrounding him.

                                  Of course, this massive loss was terrible for the actor's name...

                                  And, more recently, he was forced to resign from his role in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts 3. The actor announced the news via his Instagram and many of his fans were not happy.

                                  Some fans even decided to take action.

                                  A petition was launched, with the ultimate aim to revive his role in the movie - it has so far gained more than 150,000 signatures. But now, there's been some more exciting news for the actor...

                                  A source has told Small Screen that Tim Burton is looking to cast Johnny as Gomez in the upcoming Netflix Addams Family remake.

                                  "Depp is in talks to star as Gomez Addams in The Addams Family. It was Tim Burton’s idea. It seems as though Netflix are the ones who have to be convinced," they said.

                                  It is believed that Tim Burton is very keen on the idea of having Johnny play Gomez...

                                  With the source adding that "he thinks that he would do the role justice." For more on the actor, keep scrolling...
