Amber Heard NOT Fired From ‘Aquaman 2’. Rumors began spreading like wildfire that Amber Heard has been fired and potentially replaced as Mera in the Aquaman franchise, but THR’s Ryan Parker revealed a reliable source working on ‘Aquaman 2’ shared that Amber Heard’s reported firing was “inaccurate”.
In 2020, Amber Heard shared her excitement for the upcoming film with Entertainment Weekly, stating: “I’m super excited about the amount of fan love and the amount of fan appreciation that Aquaman has acquired and 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.”
She continued, “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 get started next year.”
Amber Heard and ex-husband Johnny Depp are currently in several major legal battles in both the US and UK courts regarding accusations of abuse on both sides throughout their tremulous and toxic relationship. The accusations alone have caused a stir in the career of Depp, having been dropped by Disney in the role of Captain Jack Sparrow and Warner Bros. as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. Currently, the accusations and lawsuits have not led to her losing work or her currently contracted roles.
