After the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial ended with a jury finding that Heard had defamed the actor, she was called out on social media with millions of people asking her role to be axed from ‘Aquaman 2.’ One petition, named ‘Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2,’ that demanded her to be removed from the sequel, has received around 4.5 million signatures. But as per the latest update, her role has managed to survive in the film, which is set to release in March 2023.

Talking about removing Heard from the sequel, the actress’ representative told Fox News Digital, “The rumor mill continues as it has from day one — inaccurate, insensitive, and slightly insane." This update comes after Juliette Lauren Fischer, who claimed to be a Warner Bros’ executive producer, stated that the creators of the film have decided to remove all her scenes from the movie.

Just Jared also claimed that sources close to the Aquaman production have shot them an update, saying, “Amber has not been completely cut from the film. She still has a small role.

As soon as this news broke out, many were quick to react to show their unhappiness. One wrote, "Amber Heard's spokesperson says she's not being recast in 'Aquaman 2' after a report claims she's been axed from the sequel I mean, why would she be? She only a domestic abuser. It’s not like she hurt anybody right? Oh wait, that’s EXACTLY what it means!"

Another user tweeted by saying, "If Warner Bros takes Amber Heard out of Aquaman 2 I believe her movie career is over. Keeping her in gives her the opportunity for her “come back”. It’s really sad to see that SHE blew her big break. #JusticeLeague #Aquaman #Aquaman2". Promising not to watch it if Heard is there, one user said, "At the end of the day, I will not be seeing Aquaman 2 unless Amber Heard is removed from it. Sorry, Jason Momoa. I'd probably still not watch it if it was free."

The trial and the sequel

During her highly publicized defamation trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp, the 36-year-old actress said that Warner Brothers “didn’t want to include me” in the DC Comics sequel. As reported by New York Post, Heard added that she was “actively scheduling timing for filming” the movie until Depp’s legal team reportedly launched a campaign against her. She said her scenes were drastically diminished in the film. "I was given a script and then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes that had action in it, that depicted my character and another character, without giving any spoilers away, two characters fighting with one another, and they basically took a bunch out of my role. They just removed a bunch out.”
