The latest rumor about Amber Heard in Aquaman 2 has been debunked by Variety. The reality is very different. There is talk of giving him more paper.
Yesterday the rumor jumped again that the star of Aquaman 2, Amber Heardhad been fired from the upcoming sequel to DC Comics. The rumor claimed that she had been replaced by another actress. Social networks soon echoed this news, which she has been circulating for weeks. Even though the source was very doubtful, she gained all the strength in the world and spread like wildfire… Until finally a media outlet like Variety has put the matter in order.
To be fair, let them eliminate Amber Heard as Mera in Aquaman 2 It would not have been a great loss on a narrative level. The first leaked details about the sequel to the DC Extended Universe they talked about it having little relevance in the movie. It didn’t even exceed ten minutes of footage. This came to light even in the defamation trial against Johnny Depp. However, now Variety has debunked all the latest rumors and has put a new card on the table.
According to Amber Heard’s spokesperson, this has been the answer to the theories and murmurs about Aquaman 2. “The rumor mill continues as it has from day one,” she said. “This information is inaccurate, insensitive and a little crazy.”
The media denies the reports
There are no arguments, exactly. But the rumors claimed again that Amber Heard has been expelled from Aquaman 2 and replaced, as Mera doesn’t seem to have much of a role in the sequel. At least, as we learned during the trial. The actress herself declared that in Warner Bros. Pictures they weren’t sure about bringing her back as Mera. In the studio she worried about on-screen chemistry with Jason Momoa. Mera’s role was reportedly cut down to around ten minutes in the footage.
After what happened, Amber Heard has already been stained with the “bad girl” catchphrase. Especially after the verdict. The trial has ruled that the actress must pay 10 million dollars in compensatory damages. And also $350,000 in punitive damages. Seen what has been seen, and with the shadow of the boycott looming on the horizon, it is understandable that Warner Bros. Pictures try to make a decision about Aquaman 2. Although it is a decision as controversial as this one.
“Even someone who is convinced that I deserve all this hate and exposure, even if you think I’m lying… You still can’t look me in the eye and tell me that you think there has been fair representation on social media,” said Amber Heard. “You can’t tell me that you think this has been fair.” Be that as it may, the rumor about Aquaman 2 has been denied by Variety.
