Johnny Depp and Amber Heard continue to throw allegations at one another relating to their legal clashes and divorce proceedings and now it has begun to bleed over into their professional lives as well. We saw Johnny Depp stepping down from the role of Geller Grindelwald last week in the fantastic Beasts franchise owing to him losing his libel lawsuit. And now it’s time for Heard as rumors say that she wouldn’t play the character of Mera in Aquaman 2.
However, Johnny Depp’s exit take on the Fantastic Beasts came from the actor himself. On the other hand, unconfirmed reports and rumors are the ones talking about Amber Heard’s possible dismissal from Aquaman 2. Now, the actress has debunked all of those claims and reassured her fans that she would be back as the DC Extended Universe’s Mera and that she has garnered so much excitement for the film.
Assuming that there are no changes made between now and when the sequel begins its production, it is most likely to witness Amber Heard playing the role of Xebelian princess in Aquaman for the third time. In addition to that, Zack Snyder’s highly-anticipated Justice League will also be dropping as a four-part miniseries next year on HBO Max, which will entail how Mera and Arthur met.
But the latest rumors say that there has been a petition filed owing to the dirty laundry that has been publicly aired between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp. The petition is directly calling for Heard to be removed from the cast of Aquaman 2 with plenty of negative allegations directed at her. This can be a matter of concern for Heard as over one million signatures have been collected to date.
