Amber Heard recently posted a tweet to tease her role in Aquaman 2. The 34-year-old actress is currently trapped in a legal battle with her ex-husband Johnny Depp. Heard’s new tweet includes a photo of her reading a novel during the free time on the sets of her first Aquaman movie.
“Before Aquaman pulls the last page out of this book,” she wrote: “# gettingakindleforaquaman2 @ aquamanmovie.”
She had also previously denied the rumours of her removal from the franchise by saying, ‘Paid rumors and paid campaigns on social media don’t dictate [casting decisions] because they have no basis in reality.’
Recently an online petition also became famous that demanded the removal of Amber Heard from the DC franchise. The petition gained over 1.5 million signatures from people all around the world.
This petition came up after her ex-husband Johnny Depp was removed from the franchise of Fantastic Beasts on losing the libel trial to The Sun newspaper.
The online petition site Change.org wanted Amber Heard to be treated the same way her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, was being treated. Therefore, a petition was filed for the removal of Amber Heard from her role of Mera in Aquaman 2. The petition said, “Since Heard’s divorce from Johnny Depp, she has systematically crusaded to ruin Depp in Hollywood. He will bear the scar from that for the rest of his life.”
“Men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women. This must be recognized, and action must be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry. Do the right thing. Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2, ” the petition further read.
After this petition, there were also some rumours of introducing a new female lead in Aquaman 2.
The ongoing battle between Amber Heard and her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, made things difficult for Warner Bros. Studios to manage both the actors.
This year has brought another twist in the legal battle between Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard.
In 2018 ‘The Sun’ referred to Depp as a “wife-beater” in one article. This article came up after Amber accused Depp of physical abuse. The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star lost his case against ‘The Sun’ as the high court said that the word “Wife-beater” to be “substantially true”.
Amber claims that during a fight, Johnny threw a phone at her. One of her friends said that Depp broke a bottle of wine and spilt it all over the apartment.
This new twist in this case of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has made the #JusticeForJohnnyDepp hashtag trending on Twitter.
