Amber Heard Alleges Her ‘Aquaman 2’ Role Was Significantly Cut off After Johnny Depp Allegations

It is not only Johnny Depp who had lost significant roles in his career after Amber Heard’s abuse allegations. Amber Heard alleges her ‘Aquaman 2’ has been cut short after Johnny Depp came up with his accusations against Amber.

On her Monday courtroom trial, the actress mentioned that her lead role in the famous DC sequel, “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” was reduced after the news about mutual abuse and all other allegations surfaced in the media.

Is Amber Heard present In Aquaman 2?

As of now, the actress is still in the upcoming Aquaman sequel that is slated to release in 2023. In the first film of this franchise, Amber Heard played a major part. But after the $50 million defamation case that Depp filed against his ex-wife, things started to change.

Initially, it was Amber who claimed that she was trapped in an abusive relationship. She even op-ed for the Washington Post in 2018 and that did change things. In order to clear his name as an abuser, Johnny Depp sued Amber with a $50 million defamation trial and Amber Heard counter-sued for $100 million.

While explaining her struggle to keep Amber said that Warner Bros. “didn’t want to include me in the film”. Thus, in spite of returning as the main character Mera, she was chosen for a “very pared-down version.”

She even mentioned that she “fought really hard to stay in the movie”.

“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 spoiler away, two characters fighting with one another, and they basically took a bunch out of my role,” “They just removed a bunch out.”

However, Heard still earned around $2 million for that small role in the 2023 sequel. She explained how she was “actively scheduling timing for filming,” but as soon as Depp’s team of attorneys called her a liar, things started to take a turn for the worst. Heard sounded very upset because once she was the main character and now, she is just an additional character in the film.

Did The Fans Petition To Remove Amber Heard From Aquaman 2 Work?

Though she is not fully removed from the film, Amber is said to have only 10 minutes of screen time in the film. After all the allegations and her actions of falsifying things were out, fans and supporters of Johnny Depp started a petition to remove Amber from Aquaman 2. As a matter of fact, that did have an impact as Amber has a limited role which is equivalent to not playing any major part in the film.

On asking about the film, the producer Peter Safran said, “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 [director] James Wan and [star] 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.”

Amber has been suffering from a lot of financial and career losses after this defamation trial and she made it clear. She even denied the claim of leaving human feces in the midst of Depp’s bed. She claims that it was his dog who did it and that was nothing but a practical joke.

Heard even presented the photos of her assault to the jury. “At another moment, he punched me across the jaw. At one point he either pushed or threw…I went flying into this old church furniture,” “I later thought I had a concussion.”

The case is going in a lot of different directions and fans are trying hard to follow up with everything. But as the case is progressing, maybe, Amber would be permanently removed from the film if things do not go in the right way. So, the final outcome can only tell about what’s in store for the future of both the stars.
