Johnny Depp appears to have bounced back pretty effortlessly following his highly public divorce from Amber Heard, as news just broke that he's been cast in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel.

Obviously, the perennial Tim Burton star is a perfect fit for this franchise (no word yet on who he's playing, BTW), but there was a fair amount of speculation as to how both Depp and Heard's careers would fare following the actresses' accusations of abuse—the fear being that he would continue being cast in big-budget movies, and that she'd be blacklisted.

Unsurprisingly, the internet has a lot of thoughts:

Fantastic Beasts is obviously a huge win for Depp, but it remains to see how Heard's acting career will progress. She's currently set to star as Mera in Aquaman, a role she snagged before the divorce.
