After trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heardan even greater fuss has arisen around the actress, which mainly concerns her own role of Mera in Aquaman And Aquaman 2.
A petition clamoring for the removal of Amber the film has exceeded 2 million signatures, and Warner Bros. had to run for cover, also thanks to the decision to remove Johnny Depp from the role of Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3: Dumbledore’s Secrets before the process even started. According to an insider:
Warner Bros. decided to completely rephrase the role of Amber Heard after testing the film on screen. Some additional shots will be done with Jason Momoa and Nicole Kidman.
Although nothing else is known, many rumors have involved the fact that the giant of the cinema has tried to remove completely Amber Heard from Aquaman 2 following the outcome of the trial, which saw Johnny Depp winning. According to a leaked report (although it is nothing official), one new actress she would play Mera in all DC Comics movies from here on out. Following the trial, the hashtag # boycottaquaman2 started trending, similar to what happened with #boycottmulan following statements by actress Liu Yifei regarding the Hong Kong police.
The Warner Bros. producer, Peter Safranreleased a statement indicating that the studio is backing Amber Heard in Aquaman 2despite strong pressure from fans to have her removed from the film. However, regarding Jason Momoa and Amber Heard, who were supposed to act side by side in the film, he expressed himself Walter Hamada:
They didn’t have much chemistry together. In reality, it is not at all uncommon for there to be no chemistry in movies, and this can happen for two reasons: the ability to combine the performance with the magic of a great soundtrack and the way in which the pieces are put together. This way you can make chemistry. At the end of the day, when you watch the movie, they seem to have great chemistry. But, in this case, I just know that it took a lot of effort in post production to get there.
The Blast contacted Amber Heard of rumors that it would be removed from Aquaman 2, and a spokesperson said it was “inaccurate, insensitive and slightly insane”. The actress would, therefore, denied the rumors who saw her cut off.
