Bruce Campbell is known for portraying Ash Williams in Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead franchise. Bruce has never played a gender swap role but it seems fans are excited to see him in one. He has been recently mentioned as a possible replacement for Amber Heard in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

Many moviegoers have demanded that Heard be removed from the next DC sequel due to her legal struggles with Johnny Depp. Fans have suggested Emilia Clarke, Blake Lively, and even Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez as replacements for her. A popular petition demanding her termination has topped four million signatures.

A new meme circulating on social media claims that a petition calling for Campbell to replace Heard as Mera in Aquaman 2 has gathered three million signatures. On Twitter, a fan tweeted the meme to Campbell and received a response from the hipster. Campbell asked for the script keeping things light.

Send me a script.

Campbell’s response has gone viral, with over 228,000 likes as of this writing. While it’s clear that this isn’t meant to be taken seriously, some fans have gone so far as to imagine Campbell in the role of Mera. To get a better idea of what this would look like, at least one individual used a face-swapping tool to place the actor’s face on Mera’s body. Check it all out below.
