Amber Heard’s reputation among fans has already deteriorated since the beginning of her legal battle with Johnny Depp. It appears that her tough days have only started. Amber recently claimed that Warner Bros. refused to include her in a majority of the upcoming “Aquaman” sequel.
According to Variety, due to the consequences of her divorce from Johnny Depp, Amber Heard claimed that Warner Bros. “didn’t want to include me” in the next “Aquaman” sequel. During her defamation lawsuit against Depp, the star stated that she was “actively scheduling timing for filming” the second “Aquaman” picture until Depp’s team labeled her a liar about her abuse accusations against Depp.
Heard stated that “conversation” concerning the sequel “stopped at that point.” Heard plays Mera in various Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment comic book films. She made her debut as the character in “Justice League,” which she described as a “three-picture option.” The second picture was “Aquaman,” in which she had a co-lead role alongside Jason Momoa and earned $1 million.
Heard stated that she received twice as much for “Aquaman 2,” the third picture in her contract, but also stated that her character was “a very pared-down version.”
“I was given a script and then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes that had action in it, that depicted my character and another character, without giving any spoilers away, two characters fighting with one another, and they basically took a bunch out of my role. They just removed a bunch out.”
Heard is only seen for around 10 minutes in the “Aquaman” sequel, which is officially named “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.” James Wan returns to helm the film after earning positive reviews for 2018’s “Aquaman,” which earned over $1 billion worldwide. Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, and Nicole Kidman join Momoa and Heard in the sequel.
Amber appears to be reaping the consequences of her actions since Johnny has experienced significant professional setbacks as a result of her claims. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will be released on March 17th, 2023. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
