A panel at San Diego’s annual Comic Con got a little wild when actors from “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” responded to the question of how they might use magic for good in real life.

Actress Zoe Kravitz, who joins the cast of the Harry Potter prequel as Leta Lestrange, claimed that she would “Impeach Trump.” Dan Fogler, who returns in the second Fantastic Beasts film as Jakob Kowalski, came up with an official-sounding spell to boot: “Impeachious maximus.”

Ezra Miller, who plays Credence Barebone in the film, said that he would “smash the patriarchy” if he had real magic at his disposal.

Not everyone was thrilled with the politicization of the panel, however.

In addition to the debut screening of the film’s teaser trailer, attendees were surprised by actor Johnny Depp, who appeared in person — and in character — and gave a brief speech.
