Could Johnny Depp Return to "Pirates of the Caribbean 6"? What We Know

Among his many notable roles, actor Johnny Depp is famously known for portraying

Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise.

Since the release of the first film, "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" in 2003

Depp has been in all five of the movies and is arguably the face of the franchise.

The last Pirates of the Caribbean film came out in 2017, and there were talks of a sixth film not long after.

Some fans were hoping the beloved Disney films would return and give closure to Jack Sparrow's story

but Depp's ongoing legal battle with his ex-wife and "Aquaman" actress Amber Heard has complicated his involvement.

Here's everything we know about Depp's participation in the sixth Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

Depp and Heard married in 2015 after three years of dating.
