We finally have our first look at Ezra Miller’s mysterious Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them character, Credence Barebone, as well as some intriguing info.
Entertainment Weekly has released the first official image of the Justice League actor alongside Colin Farrell’s Percival Graves, who is a powerful auror and the Director of Magical Security in the American wizarding government. That sounds very important.
Credence is the middle child of Mary Lou Barebone, played by Samantha Morton, the radical leader of an organization called the New Salem Philanthropic Society that wants to bring about another Salem Witch Trials, exposing and killing witches and wizards – as you guys can see from the posters plastered on the walls of the alley where Credence and Graves are together.
According to EW, Ezra Miller's character “appears withdrawn, extremely shy and far more vulnerable than his two sisters. Credence is defenseless against the abuse that comes in response to the slightest infraction of Mary Lou’s strict rules. But his loneliness also makes him susceptible to the manipulation of Percival Graves (Colin Farrell), who has taken a personal interest in Credence.” One thing for sure, the actor looks nothing like his DC superhero character, The Flash, in the pic below!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
Directed by Harry Potter helmer David Yates, from a script penned by J.K. Rowling, the movie boasts an impressive cast that includes Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) as Newt Scamander, Katherine Waterston (Alien: Covenant) as Porpentina Goldstein, Dan Fogler (Secrets and Lies) as Jacob Kowalski, Alison Sudol (Dig) as Porpentina’s sister, Queenie, Ezra Miller (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) as Credence, Samantha Morton (Minority Report, John Carter) as Mary Lou, Jon Voight (Ray Donovan) as Henry Shaw Sr., Ron Perlman (Hellboy) as Gnarlack, Carmen Ejogo (Selma) as Seraphina Picquery, Jenn Murray (Brooklyn) as Chastity, Faith Wood-Blagrove as Modesty and Colin Farrell (True Detective) as Percival Graves.
