Aquaman 2 to get new female lead to sideline Amber Heard? Fans protest she gets same treatment as Johnny Depp

After the successful debut of the first Aquaman, which is an understatement given the fact that it grossed USD 1.148 billion at the box office, James Wan will soon embark on another challenging journey to helm the long-awaited Aquaman 2. Even before going into production, the movie is facing scrutiny. In case you’ve somehow blissfully missed all the controversy that’s transpired over the course of the last year between actor Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard, the allegations of physical domestic abuse and two separate court cases in the United States and the UK have made things increasingly difficult for Warner Bros. to work with either actor. Just over a month ago, in fact, the studio cut ties with the Pirates of the Caribbean star after he lost his libel case against The Sun, recasting Grindelwald for Fantastic Beasts 3.

 

Now, a lot of folks on the internet are campaigning to see Heard suffer the same treatment. In fact, the petition to remove her from Aquaman 2 is nearing a staggering 2 million signatures. And while WB has yet to announce any plans to hire another actress for the role, it seems that they’re trying to come up with a compromise.  According to Grace Randolph, the host of the Beyond The Trailer YouTube channel, the studio is bringing on another female lead to balance things out. “Some of you are asking re Amber Heard – as I told you before, they are bringing on this new female lead to balance things out, and writing the script so that Heard’s role can be cut down if needed. But as of right now she’s still in Aquaman 2,” the journalist wrote on her Twitter feed. 

 

As we learned last month, Warner Bros. may not be able to fire the London Fields star if it comes to it due to her contract. What they can do, however, is find a way to sideline her character in favour of a newcomer in Aquaman 2. To what extent they’ll do so, though, is anyone’s guess at this point.

Anonymous : Won’t be watching this if this evil excuse is allowed to stay. WB requested JP resignation, why can’t they ask for hers? A verbal request would at least encourage other male victims to ever come forward. Despite audio recordings, witness testimony she’s been allowed to stay in the film. I for one can not understand such double standards.

Anonymous : Please READ and be informed. The libel trial transcripts are available thru reporter Nick Wallis. After reading, if you still want to pay to see Amber Heard in anything, you are as easily manipulated by her as he was.

Anonymous : Ah to be a clueless Depp fan. The disinformation is hysterical! Since last Spring the story has been Heard was fired. THEN she had not been fired but was going to be. Then she was going to jail for faking evidence. But it was Depp’’s attorney who was busted for that. Oops! Then once she lost that U.K. court case, she’d definitely be fired. Oops! Depp lost! Now her screen time will be reduced! LOL! Deppheads sound like a bunch of Trumpers making excuses and making stuff up.

Anonymous : I assume you are American. I have a neighbour who is Trailer Trash. Read between the lines, I would not trust Amber Heard any further than I could throw her. I am not a Depp fan, but I feel for him as I feel he has been kippered by Amber Heard. She would drive me to drink and I am teetotal.
