J.K. Rowling May Have Been Teasing That ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ Twist Since 2016

‘Fantastic Beasts 2’ Won’t Feature Any Scenes Between Dumbledore and Grindelwald

One of the reasons Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is so highly anticipated is the prospect of seeing a young, hot Dumbledore played by Jude Law.
