Captain Salazar's crew
|Behind the scenes|
Salazar was a captain who operated from the 18th century. Not much of him is currently known, except that he led deadly ghost pirates and was an old nemesis to Jack Sparrow. At some point, he would end up in a place known as the Devil's Triangle. He would later escape with the determination to kill every pirate at sea.
Behind the scenes
- Captain Salazar will be portrayed by Javier Bardem in Dead Men Tell No Tales.
- Before officially casting Javier Bardem for Dead Men Tell No Tales, Christoph Waltz was rumored to be the original choice for the role. At that time, the character was referred to as "Captain Brand"; rumors claim that the name "Brand" was in early screenplays and was changed to "Salazar" to sound more Mediterranean to accompany Javier Bardem's Spanish descent.
