Having to pay 15 million dollars to Johnny Depp having lost the defamation trial does not seem to be enough punishment for Amber Heardbecause in addition to also having lost in the court of public opinion, the actress would be the victim of a deep rejection that could force her to lose her appearance on screen in the sequel to Aquaman not at all, after its role was significantly reduced.
Strong rumors shared by Just Jared were spread on the Internet of an intention of Warner Bros. to remove it from the final product due to the refusal of the fans, but the actress assures that it is not true.
The rumors are “a little crazy”
“The rumors continue as they have since day one: inaccurate, insensitive, and a little crazy.”, declared the representatives of the actress who plays Mera in the saga starring Jason Momoa to Indie Wire.
The report of Just Jared indicated that the test screenings had resulted in the audience reacting negatively to Heard’s participationso the decision would have been made, now, to completely erase the actress from the tape.
Amber herself declared during the trial that her role had been quite reduced from what she would have originally received, all after details of her controversial relationship with her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, began to come to light:
“They gave me a script and then they gave me new versions of the script where they had cut scenes that had action, that represented my character and another character, without revealing any spoilers, two characters fighting each other, and they basically took a lot of my role. They ended up removing a lot”.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will be released in March 2023but they still have to do reshoots with Momoa and Nicole Kidman, and during that time they could film the scenes of the new actress, if the rumors are true, and many portals point to Emilia Clarke as the one chosen to fill that role.
