Another speculation around his revived film career revolves around the return of Depp in the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise as his beloved character, Captain Jack Sparrow. His last appearance was almost half a decade ago, in 2017, in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales'.

As reported by the Daily Mail, an unnamed source was of the opinion that Depp has been talking with Disney ever since the jury ruled the case in his favor. Speculations are that he may possibly return and be paid almost $300 million. This source also said that the animation studio had "reached out to the actor prior to his defamation trial against Amber Heard and asked whether he would be interested in returning for another pirate film or two".

However, recalling one of the days of the six-week long trial, Depp was heard saying that he would most likely not be returning to the franchise under any circumstances. He was asked, "If Disney came to you with $300m dollars and a million alpacas, nothing on this earth would get you to go back and work with Disney on a Pirates of the Caribbean film?" Depp replied, "That is true."
