The trial of the defamation suit between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard resumed this Monday (16), with the actress continuing her testimony before the jury and telling her version of the facts that were previously addressed in court. As the trial progresses, Amber’s image looks increasingly scarred, and today she confirmed that her role in Aquaman 2 is being significantly reduced.
Coincidence or not, a petition calling for the actress to be removed from the DC movie sequel is on the cusp of becoming one of the most signed on the site. change.org. Two weeks ago, the petition has reached 2 million signaturesand now there are more than 4 million adherents.
During Monday’s deposition, Amber was asked about her involvement in Aquaman 2and she stated that she had to fight to keep up in the Warner Bros. sequel: “I fought hard to stay in the movie. They didn’t want to include me in the movie.”
Although she managed to get the role of Mera in the production, the actress reported that her role was drastically reduced, saying that she first received a script, but then new versions of the script were sent:
“I received a script. Then they gave me new versions of the script that took out scenes that had action, that portrayed my character and another character, without giving away spoilers, two characters fighting each other. They basically took a lot out of my role. They just removed a bunch.”
Regardless of the outcome of the trial, it appears that Amber is convinced that Warner Bros. does not insist on keeping her in the cast of the franchise due to the accusations against her, who runs the risk of having the same negative experience as Johnny Depp, fired from pirates of the caribbean 6 and Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets.
A few days ago, before starting your deposition, Amber Heard has let go of the PR team that took care of her image. According to a source from New York Postthe actress was frustrated that her story wasn’t being told effectively.
Aquaman 2 It is scheduled for release on March 17, 2023.
