There are unconfirmed reports that Amber Heard has been fired from 'Aquaman 2' by Warner Bros for an alleged breach of contract on the actress' part. After the rumors of Heard's reported removal from her role as Mera in the Jason Mamoa starrer reached the ears of Johnny Depp fans, they rejoiced on Twitter and requested the studio to replace Heard with 'Game of Thrones' star, Emilia Clarke, who previously made a much-loved fictional pair with Mamoa on the small screen.

Australian entertainment news site, Sausage Roll reported the news of Heard being fired from the coveted role. Sources told the site that the star was let go for a breach in her contract having to do with a health and fitness clause. "Amber Heard did not pass her physical examination. She’s put on some pounds and is in terrible shape. There is a clause in her contract which says she is required to be in good form ahead of shooting and she violated that,” the site reported.

YouTube channel Popcorned Planet confirmed the report. One of the facts that might lend some credibility to the Australian outlet's claims is that the 'Aquaman' movies are shot Down Under. It was also reported that Warner Bros is yet to hire a new actress to fill the role of Jason Momoa’s on-screen love interest, although they are in the process of considering Emilia Clarke for the role.

People who stuck by Heard's former husband, believing that Depp was allegedly physically abused by the actress despite a British judge branding the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor a "wife-beater" last year, rejoiced on Twitter on the news of Heard being fired. "I heard Amber Heard was finally fired from Aquaman 2 and all I wanna say is...bless," one user said while another noted, "If Amber Heard has been fired from Aquaman 2, there's only one person who should be replacing her..."

One more captioned a meme, "Me when Amber Heard gets fired from #Aquaman2." The next said, "Can't wait to watch Aquaman 2 now that Amber Heard has been fired. Love everyone else involved."

The news came on the heels of almost two million people signing an online petition calling for Heard to be replaced as Mera. "As Amber Heard is a known and proven domestic abuser, Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment should and must remove Heard from their Aquaman 2 film project. They must not ignore the suffering of Heard's victims, and must not glamorize a domestic abuser."

"Men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women. This must be recognized, and action must be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry," the petition said. 

However, previously Warner Bros was reportedly happy to stand by Heard following the last court case going against Depp which was ultimately ruled in her favor.

Meanwhile, after the verdict in the London court in the libel case against The Sun over a 2018 article published by the newspaper in which it claimed that Depp was a "wife-beater," the actor was removed from 'Fantastic Beasts 3'. Depp has also filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard which has been posted to May 7.
