Amber Heard Shuts Down Rumors She's Not Returning for Aquaman 2
Nov 14 2020
"But now, Depp fans are demanding for Amber Heard to be removed from Aquaman 2, alleging that she is" known and proven domestic abuser". She doubles down on her return by also expressing her excitement to start filming the project next year.
"Paid rumours and paid campaigns on social media don't dictate [casting decisions] because they have no basis in reality", the actress said. "Remove AmberHeard from Aquaman 2". "I'm excited to get started next year", she added.
Heard's comments come in the wake of the United Kingdom courts ruling against her ex-husband Johnny Depp in his libel case against The Sun, the tabloid having described him as a "wifebeater".
Though an audio recording where Heard admitted "hitting" Depp emerged in January, a judge dismissed Depp's claim this month, ruling that The Sun's claims about Depp were 'substantially true'.
The petition, which has been live on Change.org for over two years, has seen a huge surge in support in recent days, with over 1.1 million signatures and counting. Heard and interfere with her reputation, career and livelihood through an online smear campaign he has organized and orchestrated. Warner Bros. have not formally revealed when generation about the AQUAMAN sequel will probably get penalized, but it is hard to say anything for sure during this outbreak.
Over the last couple of months, there were reports that Amber Heard will not return as Mera in Warner Bros.' sequel to James Wan's 2018 superhero movie.
Depp insists he never abused his ex, denying all allegations against him.
Although "Aquaman 2" has not yet been given the green light, rumors have emerged that it will likely go ahead given the success of the original film, which featured Heard playing the character Mera alongside Jason Momoa, who was cast as Aquaman. The paper called Depp a "wife-beater" in their pages, and Depp had hoped to triumph over these claims, legally. Although Depp was paid $10 million for the one scene he shot for "Fantastic Beasts 3", many fans found it unfair that Heard got to keep her role in "Aquaman 2" and "Justice League", while the actor was asked to resign. He has also sued Heard for defamation following an article she wrote for the Washington Post about sexual violence.
Still, a second Aquaman movie hasn't been greenlit just yet.
