The British actor appeared in the latest international trailer for the new movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge, as Elizabeth Swan.
Keira played the role in the original Pirates trilogy but missed the fourth, along with onscreen love interest Orlando Bloom.

Orlando’s Will Turner has already been teased in previous trailers, having last been seen in 2007’s At World’s End, where he agreed to give ten years of his life to the Flying Dutchman and recovering the souls of those who died at sea.
With this latest film to be released 10 years after this film, it could see Will return to his human life to help battle a new threat in the form of Javier Bardem’s Salazer.
With Keira’s appearance in the new Disney film, this theory seems more and more likely.

Johnny Depp also reprises his role as Captain Jack Sparrow , with Geoffrey Rush returning as Captain Barbossa and newcomers Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites filling Keira and Orlando’s young romantic void.
The film’s official synopsis details what to expect in the new film:
Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Capt. Jack Sparrow feels the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost sailors led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Capt. Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it, he must forge an uneasy alliance with a brilliant and beautiful astronomer and a headstrong young man in the British navy.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge is in cinemas on May 26
