It’s yet to be seen whether Amber Heard will play the role of Mera again in ‘Aquaman 2’. If this is true though, who will replace her?
There are rumours doing rounds that Warner Bros. has fired Amber Heard. She might not reprise her role in the sequel of ‘Aquaman’, or work in any other movie produced by the company. These claims have come forward amid the legal dispute between her and her ex-husband Johnny Depp.
- Amber Heard might not reprise her role in ‘Aquaman 2’.
- What is in store for the future of ‘Aquaman 2’ with it being set to release on December 16, 2022?
- There are claims that Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke will replace Amber Heard as Mera.
Amber Heard might not reprise her role in ‘Aquaman 2’
Earlier, the news had broken out that she was the one victimizing Depp by faking signs of domestic violence to get a restraining order against him. This angered Johnny Depp’s fans and they protested over social media platforms against defaming him.
They came up with hashtags such as #AmberHeardIsFired and also brought out a petition against her. The petition had received thousands of signatures to dismiss her from brand endorsements such as L’Oréal.
If she’s found guilty of these claims, she might even have to face time in prison, so things are not looking good for her.
According to the Cosmic Book News, “It’s claimed that Amber Heard is uninsurable, much like Robert Downey Jr during his drug days and Lindsay Lohan during her troubled times. It’s said that Warner Bros. has bought out Amber Heard’s Aquaman 2 contract and that she is out.”
“The rumours appear to have originated from Twitter users who claim to have insider information. Worth a mention these Twitter users are Johnny Depp fans, so bear that in mind; however, it is claimed the NY Times is investigating the matter.”.
The legal dispute between the two high-profile actors is complicated, to say the least. It can have an impact on their professional lives until the issue gets resolved.
There were reports that Johnny Depp might not be a part of the next ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie because of this issue while some claim that he could still play a side role along with a female lead. So whether or not they’ll play their respective roles in the upcoming film productions, is yet to be seen.
What is in store for the future of Aquaman?
With the immense success of the first movie back in 2018, we can expect the sequel of ‘Aquaman’ to make a splash on December 16, 2022. Jason Momoa will be returning to play the powerful lead as Arthur Curry in the sequel.
So what do we expect from the upcoming movie?
According to Digital Spy, “The end of the movie sees Arthur defeat Orm and take his rightful place as king of Atlantis, with Mera by his side. This comes shortly after he dons Aquaman’s classic orange-and-green costume for the first time. So, the sequel is likely to pick up in the early days of the reign of the new king Aquaman, probably dealing with the first threat that he faces as lord of Atlantis. Whatever it ends up being, Momoa says the whole thing is ‘mapped out’.”.
There are claims that Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke will replace Amber Heard as Mera.
Most of the cast will be returning to play their respective roles for the film. But when it comes to the character of Mera, there are various claims that Emilia Clarke will be replacing Amber Heard for the role. Of course, it might have to do with the fact that Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke shared screen space in Game of Thrones and their fans simply want to see them perform together again.
Look at a fan tweet here.
The idea of bringing Clarke and Momoa together might not be bad at all as they make for a powerful duo. Especially with Amber Heard’s legal troubles, the replacement might be a necessary decision for the makers of the film. We’ll just have to wait it out to see what’s going to happen.
With so much to figure out, we hope that the producers are able to resolve this problem quickly and that the release dates are not affected because of this. We can’t wait to see Jason Momoa in action in ‘Aquaman 2, can you? Let us know in the comments box below!
