Some characters are just so iconic thanks to the performances by their actors, there's no way to recast them — Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman, or Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly come to mind!

One character who is definitely synonymous with their actor is Jack Sparrow from Pirates Of The Caribbean, and fans are demanding to see that recognized in any upcoming films.

Fans of the Pirates Of The Caribbean series have been conflicted over the recent news of an upcoming addition to the franchise.

"He has been playing this role since 2003 when we first saw him arriving at the Port Royal in his boat with that epic background music playing," the petition description reads, "But can you imagine no Jack Sparrow at all? No epic entry scores, no humorous dialogues and the guy with the most good and bad luck at the same time? "
