The ongoing legal battle between Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard continues to get messier by the moment. After Johnny Depp lost an appeal in the domestic violence lawsuit, Amber Heard made sure to celebrate that fact while taking a shot at Depp.
Many fans were elated when it was reported that Amber Heard was fired from her role as Mera in Aquaman 2. However, Heard would prove everyone wrong after hinting that she will be reprising her role as Mera in Aquaman 2.
In fact, fans even recently petitioned hard to have Amber Heard removed from the upcoming film, but to no avail.
Jason Momoa previously revealed that the film started this month as well and that he is involved in writing the script. The film requires every actor to be in the best physical shape possible and Amber Heard certainly takes it seriously.
While speaking on Deadline’s Hero Nation, Aquaman 2 producer Peter Safran confirmed that Heard will be staying on the film, and that DC will not pay heed and give in to fan pressure.
“I don’t think we’re ever going to react to, honestly, pure fan pressure.
“You gotta do what’s best for the movie. We felt that if it’s James Wan, and Jason Momoa, it should be Amber Heard. That’s really what it was. One is not unaware of what is going on in the Twitter-verse, but that doesn’t mean you have to react to it or take it as gospel or accede to their wishes. You have to do what’s right for the film, and that’s really where we landed on it.”
Whether fans like it or not, Amber Heard is here to stay in the DCEU. The film is slated to release in December of 2022, but it is quite likely that many fans will boycott the film entirely.
