Amber Heard has rejected reports that she would be dropped from “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” and that her part as Mera will be remade.
“After screen testing the film, Warner Brothers opted to replace Amber Heard’s character,” a source supposedly stated.
According to the insider, they were going to undertake reshoots with actors Jason Momoa and Nicole Kidman. However, a representative for Heard said that the allegation was incorrect, disrespectful, and a little ridiculous and that the “rumour mill proceeds as it did from day one.”
The problematic actress was fired following a high profile defamation suit with ex-husband Johnny Depp.
During her high-profile defamation lawsuit with ex-husband Johnny Depp, the unhappy 36-year-old star alleged that Warner Brothers didn’t want to include her in the DC Comics sequel.
Heard further stated that she was “actively organising filming dates” for the superhero feature until Depp’s legal team allegedly started a campaign against her. She claimed that her parts in the film were substantially cut.
She was given a script and then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes that had action in them, that illustrated her character and another character, without giving any spoilers away, two characters fighting with one another, and they mainly took a bunch out of her role,” she testified in a courtroom in Fairfax, Virginia. “They simply took out a bunch.”
In evidence, Heard stated that the studio “didn’t want to incorporate” her in the new project.
During the case, Heard’s WME representative, Jessica Kovacevic, revealed that Warner Bros. asserted Heard’s “lack of chemistry” with her “Aquaman” co-star Jason Momoa nearly got her fired. Momoa, on the other hand, is said to have fought for the actress to maintain the job. Furthermore, Kovacevic stated that she felt the studio wanted Heard to be replaced as Princess Mera owing to the “negative news” generated by the legal case.
Kovacevic stated that nobody wants to be associated with that. Kovacevic also examined Heard’s profession before and after her relationship with Depp, 58, claiming she should have been a huge celebrity with the release of the first film in late 2018, which made over $1 billion.
Heard earlier spoke about the purported consequences of her connection with Depp on her profession.
Heard added that she blew opportunities. She was removed from jobs and campaigns. She struggled to maintain her job and the largest movie chance she had to date with ‘Justice League,’ with the possibility to appear in ‘Aquaman, adding that she had to “fight extremely hard” to be a part of “Justice League” since it occurred during their divorce. From 2015 through 2017, Depp and Heard were married.
Supporters of Depp have been requesting for months that Warner Bros. eliminate Heard from “Aquaman 2” due to her legal struggles with the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor. The petition has received over 4.6 million signatures to date.
The film “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” is set to hit cinemas in March 2023.
The possibility of a recasting comes on the same day as a clip of Heard’s interview with “Today” programme anchor Savannah Guthrie appeared on NBC.
She will stick by every word of her testimony till the last breath, she assured Guthrie.
On June 1, a jury in Fairfax, Virginia, awarded Depp, 58, more than $10 million after determining that his ex-wife slandered his character and harmed his profession in a 2018 op-ed she penned for the Washington Post. He was also granted $5 million in punitive damages; Heard, on the other hand, received $2 million in compensatory damages and no punitive penalties.
