Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter -- First Picture?

Here is your first look at Johnny Depp as Alice in Wonderland‘s The Mad Hatter.

Or is it? A Photoshop creation, perhaps?

In any event, the 3D flick will use a mix of live action and performance capture CGI. It will be directed by Tim Burton, who first teamed up with Depp for the 1990’s film Edward Scissorhands.

Depp will appear alongside Anne Hathaway as The White Queen and Burton‘s wife, Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen. Also featured: Michael Sheen, Mia Wasikowska, Matt Lucas, Crispin Glover, Stephen Fry and Alan Rickman.

    It’s hot…it reminds me of the New Romance movement fashion of the 80′s with a Victorian twist. Or a YOSHITAKA AMANO PAINTING. If this is a real representation of the Mad hatter character in the movie, I LOVE IT.

    anamalia :

    95% of his movies? do you have any idea how many movies johnny has done., gotta be 35+..and 7 with burton.

    Johnny has done a lot of diverse work: libertine, secret window, finding neverland, sweeney todd (which isn’t the same as jack sparrow, despite both being british) and public enemies which is still in post-preduction, but these characters are nothing alike and have all been done within 5 years. not to mention all the other stuff he has done in the past!

    you may not like him, but you have to admit he does take chances with different characters…how often does brad pitt, george clooney, tom cruise or will smith look different?

    You know there is alot of actors who stick with what character or personality they have and Johnny Depp has been doing a good damn job at what he is doing i guess you just have to undrestand his types of characters weither creepy or not he is just cool and sexy in my book.

    The only roles Depp can play are these strange looney characters. I don’t find his acting to be great– just all the same strangeness.

    @ 28 you are so right i just recently watched fear and loathing in vegas and it was hilorous his character in that movie made me think of capt jack sparrow.

    I’m guessing you don’t stray far from blockbusters then do you…
    also, again :

    what about finding neverland?
    what about secret window?
    what about the libertine?

    And although i haven’t seen it, his role in public enemies doesn’t seem all that ‘strange and looney”

    also, i don’t go to movies to watch normal people, i can do that anywhere, movies are made for us to stretch the bounds of reality.

    Yarydepp Says:

    I love Johnny I he gorgeous. I respect when people said that they dont find him hot, but never say that hes not a good actor, everybody know that he is the best actor thats why he is cast for this weird stuff but sit down and watch all his work before and then talk.

    Why must Tim Burton terrify the kiddies with another one of his take of a children classic?

    No child should deserve this punishment! And you people who live off of Burton films other than Batman need to wear more colors other than black!

    Wasn’t it bad enough with Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka looking like a pedophile rapist? Or that freaky Oompa Loompa who looked almost cannibalistic…

    Wow this looks like it will be fun.
    It sounds like a book I read, that is sorta an Adult Version of alice in wonderland,and the mad hatter is a really messed up assassin.
    should be good.

    To #10.

    It’s Alice and Wonderland that is the movie, not the Mad Hatter.

    The Mad Hatter is a character.

    I kind of agree with you, at least his films lately and his Edward Scissorhands from the 90s. I do like some of his earlier work but it seems now he wants to hide behind makeup for some reason, and I don’t really find him all that diverse anymore. He’s just bein’ all Tim Burton-ish.

    I can not wait for this movie! :D

    I love the cast.
    Johnny Depp is love!
    Bit surprised about Anne Hathaway though.
    I guess she’ll rise to the top with all the new Tim Burton movies that shall be lined up for her.
    Alan Rickamn? – **** YES!
    Helena Bonham Carter- really? bit surprised. I love her. :D

    The cast is perfect.<3
