New ‘Fantastic Beasts’ poster depicts Grindelwald approaching the good guys

A new poster for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald depicts many characters, the Deathly Hallows symbol, and Paris’ iconic Eiffel Tower.

Did J.K. Rowling select Paris as the next city for this series because the Eiffel Tower would fit so perfectly within the Deathly Hallows symbol in promotional material? It works so well that they had to grasp this opportunity!

The new Crimes of Grindelwald poster depicts the antagonist facing away from the camera, walking towards Newt (Eddie Redmayne), Dumbledore (Jude Law), and eight other characters. “Who will change the future?” the tagline reads.

It’s interesting that the poster wouldn’t show Grindelwald’s face despite the character not having a lot of screen time in the first film — it speaks to the fact that fans of the Wizarding World are so hardcore that they don’t need a reminder about who this is.

Those who are critical of Johnny Depp in the film might argue that WB doesn’t want to remind us that Depp is in the movie. That said, WB released a slew of character posters a couple weeks ago that proudly showed off Depp’s face.

Crimes of Grindelwald hits theaters this November.
