Amber Heard will continue to play Princess Mera
Amber Heard disperses all the rumors regarding her not being in the Aquaman 2.
Johnny Depp’s ex-wife, Amber Heard, refuses all the rumors that makers might replace her as Xebellian princess Mera in the upcoming film Aquaman 2. Jason Momoa played the superhero himself. Like the other D.C. movies, Aquaman was a hit at the box office, and a sequel will release in December 2022.
Why are makers replacing Heard? Or are they?
Heard is already in the headlines because of the domestic dispute going on with Depp. Amber accused Depp of being verbally and physically abusive during their courtship. Depp accuses Heard of the same. Famous people once claimed as the “bad guy,” people say things without checking the authenticity of the facts. U.K. tabloid publication The Sun called Depp a “wife-beater.” Johnny sued them, but that was not it. As Depp lost the court case, he was asked to step away from Fantastic Beasts 3 by Warner Bros. This infuriated “Captain Jack-sparrow’s” fans and, in return, asked to fire Amber from Aquaman 2. The chaos has just gone to the extent that an online petition demanding Heard should leave the movie amassed over 1 million signatures.
In Heard’s words
In a recent interview, Heard refused to all and any rumors that she will be replaced in D.C.’s Aquaman 2. Heard states all the talks and campaigns against her are baseless, and she is too excited to see what’s in store for Aquaman and Mera. Here’s what she said:” I’m super excited about the amount of fan love and the amount of fan appreciation that Aquaman has acquired. It astonishes me that it has garnered so much excitement for Aquaman and Mera that it means we’ll be coming back. I’m so excited to film that…paid rumors and paid campaigns on social media don’t dictate [casting decisions] because they have no basis in reality. Only the fans actually made Aquaman and Aquaman 2 happen. I’m excited to start next year.”
Mother of Dragons to replace Heard?!
After the Depp-Heard situation, a lot of fans made speculations as to who will replace Heard. One peculiarly famous choice is Emilia Clarke, who is known for playing Daenerys Targaryen (Mother of Dragons) in HBO’s Game of Thrones. Fans highly appreciated the chemistry between Clarke and Momoa was for the series. Apart from that, there is no denying that how extremely talented Emilia is. Alas, Heard dismissed fans’ wish to see them together.
What to expect from Aquaman 2?
There is no confirmation on any theories regarding the movie, although maker James Wan informed that the sequel would have several horror elements. Wan recalls the horror-struck trench sequence from the previous film. It will be interesting to watch what comes next.
