The internet has been divided on Amber Heard since the whole trial with Johnny Depp. Some people have been calling for her to be fired from her role as Mera in the Aquaman films. It’s been relatively unclear what actions WB would take if any. On Sunday people started going crazy though, claiming that Amber Heard had been fired. Those who had been hoping for that were overjoyed, believing she was getting what she deserved for what she did to Johnny Depp. A lot of people agree that she was terrible, and though I won’t share my personal opinion… I hope that if the allegations against her are true she is brought to justice. Now, it seems Amber Heard was not fired.
I guess it isn’t too shocking that we’re getting more rumors about this. It feels like every couple of months we’re dealing with a new Amber Heard rumor. That just goes to show how passionate the fans are for fighting for what they believe in. Since Warner Bros hasn’t said anything in regards to her firing, I doubt anything will be done at this point. Anything is possible though, so until filming for Aquaman 2 is well underway there is still a chance she could end up not returning.
At the height of the rumors, it was a reporter from The Hollywood Reporter who broke that the rumors were inaccurate. He posted on Twitter that he had heard the rumors were false.

We’ll probably have to put up with Amber Heard in the newest Aquaman film. Little is known about the film’s plot but it is reported to start filming this summer. Apparently, they will be shooting in London, but I can not 100% confirm that at this time.
Long story short as of right now Amber Heard was not fired.
Aquaman 2 is supposed to come out in theatres on December 16, 2022.
