Aquaman 2: Warner Bros considering 'reducing' Amber Heard's screentime amid Johnny Depp controversy?

There is some not-so-good news for Amber Heard. The actress has been in the headlines for her divorce with Johnny Depp. Over the past few weeks, explosive revelations have made the headlines. From claims that she was abusive with Depp during their marriage to the actor accusing her of cheating on him with Elon Musk, the controversies refuse to die. Amid these accusations, a new report suggests Heard's future in the DC Extended Universe might be at a huge risk. 

If sources of We Got This Covered are to be believed, Warner Bros is considering their options with regard to Heard in the future Aquaman movies. The actress plays Meera in the Jason Momoa led franchise. While it is obvious that the actress will return for Aquaman 2, given the bad publicity around her, the studio might be reconsidering its options. Insiders have claimed WB is discussing if the actress should either be fired from the franchise altogether or reducing her screentime in the movie. 

The news comes amid a backlash against the star. After allegations and the phone recording of Heard confessing hitting Depp surfaced online, petitions to remove the actress from Aquaman began making the rounds. A few petitions have thousands of signatures urging WB to take action. There are also fans recommending Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke to take over the role from Aquaman 2. 

It is to see if Warner Bros inclines towards fan demands or if they would retain Heard in a minimal, supporting role. Do you think Amber Heard should be retained in Aquaman 2? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates.

She is a a horrible representative for a movie. We do not want to see her ever again. She has broken the public’s trust in the worst way. Her reputation is shit, literal shit. #AmberTurd #Abuser #Liar She does not belong in the public eye. Her presence drags us all down into a disgusting reality. Her mind is sick. She needs to be in an institution or serious therapy where she cannot harm others. Put her behind bars and put a damned litter box in her cage. At least get her house broken. She is a disgrace to humanity and should be out of sight and out of mind. Remove her from public! Do us a favor. Take her out like the trash she is.

I am surprised that people don't give anyone a chance. Arguments go between two people. The only 2 that know what actually took place is them. I believe she deserves her role. I believe he deserves his role. But they should break up.

Drop her and give the role to another deserving actress l. She wasn’t even that great in that role, I couldn’t take her seriously the entire time I watched the film.

Hoping WB doesn’t keep the husband abuser Amber. Replace her or you will definitely lose money. Rewarding a serial abuser by allowing her to stay on in Auquaman would show how the entertainment industry does not take abuse from (females) seriously. Johnny Depp was brought up right to never raise his hand to a woman and this vindication should restore his good name. Amber the liar needs to own up to abusing the #MeToo movement for her own sick benefit.

I'm not going to watch Aquaman 2 'coz I am not a big fan of Heard. She's not good at acting, she's just beautiful. I like Emilia Clarke more. Sophie Turner can be Mera too, she's a great actress.
