Walt Disney released a new character poster for the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides which features the villainous Blackbeard (Ian McShane).
In the fourth chapter in Disney’s successful Pirates franchise, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) runs into a beautiful woman from his past named Angelica (Penelope Cruz) who tricks poor Jack into helping her father, the notorious pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), quest for the fabled Fountain of Youth.
Blackbeard Character Description:Blackbeard, a name uttered in terror by all who sail the sea, or any unfortunate enough to encounter him on dry land. His flagship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge, is manned by zombies, festooned with the bones of his victims and spits fire from its bow to incinerate enemy ships, or the occasional crew member fallen out of favor. Blackbeard dabbles in the Black Arts and wields a sword imbedded with one of the three sapphires of Triton. But Blackbeard lives under the shadow of a prophesied death, his only hope the restorative waters of the Fountain of Youth. Whatever it takes, no matter who is crushed beneath the weight of his heartless ambition, Blackbeard will get there, by any possible means.
The movie, directed by Rob Marshall also stars Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Richard Griffiths, Judi Dench, Stephen Graham, Gemma Ward.
Written by Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot, Pirates 4 is loosely based on the novel On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers.
