Rumors Fly That Amber Heard is Getting Fired From ‘Aquaman 2’ Over Domestic Abuse Allegations

When Amber Heard accused Johnny Depp of domestic abuse, Depp lost a lot of work. There were petitions to fire him from the Fantastic Beasts series of Harry Potter prequels and Disney announced that Depp wouldn’t be included in any future Pirates of the Caribbean films. But now the worm has turned and the domestic abuse allegations are on the other foot. Amber Heard has managed to avoid the kind of blowback Depp experienced even though Heard was previously arrested for domestic assault with a different partner.

That may be about to change because there are now rumors that Heard isn’t going to be involved in Aquaman 2. Heard played Mera, the love interest to Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, in the first Aquaman movie as well as in Justice League.

The website Republic World reported the rumors that Warner is looking to be out of the Amber Heard business.

Amber Heard’s ugly breakup might have cost her the role of a DC superhero. There are rumours that the makers of the Jason Momoa starrer are planning to remove Heard from their upcoming project. The recent reports claim that Warner Bros want to be totally out of all these controversies. They are planning to remove Amber as they do not wish for the bad blood to affect their upcoming project. There is also a possibility that her screen time in the film could be deducted for the same.

Okay, this is just a rumor at this point, and we’re at least a year away from the start of filming on Aquaman 2. In the comics, Mera is Aquaman’s wife so I’d guess DC wants to keep her in the films, but Marvel has proven that love interests aren’t all that important to superhero films. Hell, Mary Jane Watson isn’t even in the new Spider-Man films and for some reason they combined Better Brant and Gwen Stacy into a single character and combined her with supporting character Ned Leeds. And DC’s own Arrow killed off Green Arrow’s traditional love interest Black Canary and relaxed her with Felicity Smoak, a supporting character from The Fury of Firestorm that we’re never going to hear about again now that Arrow has ended.

DC has options here is the point. They could wait until Depp’s defamation lawsuit is cleared up in the hopes that she manages to clear her name, the role of Mera could be recast or the character could be discarded altogether to just focus the sequel on Aquaman himself. And it’s just a rumor, it might not even be true. But we can hope.

Amber is one of a huge number, replace that cog with some other sprocket. No one will notice.

There is nothing at all unique about her, or interesting.
