The answer to that question is because of his personal life controversy. During the pre-production of Fantastic Beasts The Secrets of Dumbledore, his personal life got entangled in many discussions. A few years back, a Newspaper Firm named News Group Newspapers published an article accusing Johnny Depp of being a wife-beater.

Johnny sued the Newspapers Firm, and it attracted a lot of audiences. The divorce process happened from the side of Amber Heard, and at the same time, the lawsuit wasn’t easy for Johnny against the News Group Newspapers.

Due to all this, Johnny faced a tremendous amount of loss and Warner Bros, the entertainment organization, asked him to resign from the Fantastic Beasts 3 premiere.
