The rumor that is currently floating around is that DCEU has fired Amber Heard amidst her legal battle with Johnny Depp. Despite wishing for it to be true, we’re saddened to confirm that this news is just not true. At least, not yet.
People have said that Emilia Clarke has taken on the role of Mera from Amber Heard and that she will be continuing the role henceforth in the franchise.
Heard plays the character of a Xebellian princess Mera in the DCEU and was first seen in the role in 2017’s Justice League. After that short adventure, she helmed an entire movie and was seen in 2018’s Aquaman. And now it is being said that she will be reprising the role in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
In addition, she is being attached to Aquaman 2 with Jason Momoa in the titular role. The movie is apparently slated for December 2022. The details of the film are kept under wraps but the filming is all set to begin in the summer this year.
Since Sunday, there have been rumors that Heard has been fired from Aquaman 2. Several trends have also emerged on social media citing her legal battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp as the reason.
Both Depp and Heard have been contesting a public battle since 2014 where the latter has accused the other of physical and verbal abuse. Evidence has since merged that the accusations are simply not true – in fact; it’s Johnny Depp who’s been the actual victim.
She has continued her torment over the years and shown to the world what a nightmare she was for Johnny Depp. Because of her false accusations, he has been fired from Warner Bros’ Fantastic Beasts franchise along with Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
For a brief moment it seemed like all the balance was returning to the universe and the karma was under work. However, this may not really be true as no official statements have surfaced as of yet.
Nobody knows what the future holds but here’s hoping that Amber Heard gets what she deserves. According to The Hollywood Reporter, writer Ryan Parker has took to his social media and confirmed that the news of Heard’s firing are simply not true. He didn’t go into details but we will investigate this matter further.
There have been many instances in the past where news of actors getting fired have been leaked in the media before they were supposed to so as to gain response from the fans and put pressure on the makers to reconsider the decision. We hope that this isn’t the case here
We don’t want to see Amber Heard reprising this grand role when Depp – the actual victim – has been on the receiving end of injustice. We certainly hope with patience that Heard gets the same fate as Depp, or worse.
And it seems like things are now going in the right direction because there’s a petition circulating online – demanding to remove Heard from the franchise. In December, the petition crosses over one million signatures. It’s a delicate situation and we hope justice is served.
