Fantastic Beasts 2 Payoff Poster Brings Nicolas Flamel Out of Hiding

Actor Johnny Depp performs with the Hollywood Vampires band during the Hellfest music Festival in Clisson France

At the end there is a surprise appearance from alchemist Nicolas Flamel, who Harry Potter fans will remember as the maker of the Philosopher's Stone.

Pictures released a new Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Comic-Con trailer, which you can check out below along with the Comic-Con poster in the gallery! The action-packed trailer shows Dumbledore recruiting a reluctant Newt to his cause against Grindelwald, while Grindelwald gathers his forces in his crusade for world dominance. It's at this point in the trailer where Scamander realizes the true power of Flamel. It also revealed the one thing Newt Scamander is most afraid of.

Later we see Grindelwald preaching his vision to wizards, and potentially "rising to dominance".

Directed by David Yates from a script by J.K. Rowling, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald also stars Ezra Miller, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech. He wants to establish a new wizarding order.

Wilkinson said that while Rowley had been discharged, it was a "day tinged with sadness for everyone" as they remembered Sturgess. Sturgess and Rowley were admitted to Salisbury District Hospital, the same hospital where the Skripals were treated.

And finally, we catch a glimpse of Newt going toe-to-toe with the villain, Grindelwald taunting him by saying "Mr. Scamander, do you think Dumbledore will mourn for you?"

When the cast of Warner Bros.' Harry Potter prequel was asked what they would do if they had magic in real life, costar Zoë Kravitz (who plays Leta Lestrange) shot back: "Impeach Trump!"

Albus Dumbledore explains to Newt Scamander that he needs his help because he can not "move against Grindewald". Eddie Redmayne took to the stage as well along with the rest of the cast, to thunderous applause.

The follow-up to Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them will see Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) join forces with a young Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) to prevent evil Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) from enacting his plan of having wizards and witches rule over non-magical beings. Now would be an excellent time to dust off some books and get to reading before the movie hits theaters this November.
