Amber Heard has been heavily criticized on social media and numerous organizations have removed their sponsorship deals with her. The movement to get her off the movie Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has gathered over a million signatures.
Despite an official release date of March 2023, the sequel to Aquaman won’t hit theaters until March 2021. However, after the move was completed as part of Warner Bros.’ and DC Films’ recent retrenchment, audiences will be able to return to Atlantis on March 2023.
Not only that, but producer Peter Safran declared that he didn’t care what Johnny Depp fans had to say about it, and you’d think her pay would have increased considerably after she starred in the DC adaptation’s most successful female lead yet.
However, according to Matthew Belloni of Puck, he has learnt information regarding a deposition with Walter Hamada that will be included in Heard’s defamation case against Johnny Depp, revealing that the actress was on the verge of being removed from Aquaman 2 owing to her lack of rapport with Jason Momoa.
It’s come to nothing in the end, with Heard keeping her coveted role of Mera and even making a brief appearance in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. However, it can’t be denied that she doesn’t create any fireworks with Momoa’s Arthur Curry.
Ironically, the lack of chemistry between Aquaman and Mera was cited as a recurring criticism by many critics in the first film, but we have almost a year to wait to find out if Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has addressed it.
