Rumours that Amber Heard was fired from Aquaman 2 have been denied. Heard has played Princess Meru since her first appearance in Justice League in 2017. The actress will appear in this role in Zach Snyder’s Justice League. Also, in Aquaman 2, Jason Momoa will play the lead role again. The film is slated for release in December 2022, plot details are still being finalized, and filming will begin this summer.
Rumours that Heard will leave the DC MCU began at the end of last year. Also, recently, the network began to actively disseminate information according to which Emilia Clarke should take Amber’s place in the films. But The Hollywood Reporter, citing reliable sources, claims that the rumours about the actress’s dismissal are not true.
Fan requests to fire Heard from the films began after a high-profile scandal with her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, during which the actress accused Depp of domestic violence. Many fans consider the statement to be false and remain on Johnny’s side. Both Depp and Heard, both of the couple, claimed that it was the partner who abused them physically and verbally during their relationship. In the fall, Depp was fired from Warner Bros., which provoked even more negative publicity.
