Amber Heard Confirms What We Suspected About Her Aquaman 2 Role

The $50 million defamation case brought on by Johnny Depp against his ex-wife Amber Heard hasn't been an easy or a comfortable experience for either party. Throughout their entire courtroom ordeal, many bizarre, awkward and downright disturbing details about their marriage have seen the light of day, as both Heard and Depp have alleged that they were physically abused by their ex-spouse. 

What's more, gruesome details have emerged about how Depp famously sustained serious injuries to his finger in 2015. Depp claims that the fight that led to his severed finger tip happened after an argument about their post-nuptial agreement. In a similar lawsuit against The UK Sun in 2020 (per Page Six), Depp claimed that Heard "went berserk and began throwing bottles at me" during the alleged brawl. Heard, on the other hand, alleged that her ex-husband chopped his finger on his own during a brutal attack on her. At the time of the incident, Depp also took the blame for the injury, telling doctors he cut himself with a knife, per People.

Depp claims that he lost more than his reputation from the abuse allegations made against him, but his entire career, too. He says that Disney gave him a pink slip for his future commitments with the "Pirates of the Caribbean" film franchise and as a result, he's lost millions in income, per Variety. Heard now says that her career has taken quite the hit too, particularly for her role in the upcoming "Aquaman 2" film.

Amber Heard's role in Aquaman 2 has been reduced

Amber Heard hinted that her role in the upcoming "Aquaman 2" film has been totally trimmed. So much so that if you blink — or worse, go to the bathroom during the film — you might miss her altogether. According to the New York Post, Heard says because of her courtroom battle with Johnny Depp, the head honchos at Warner Bros. have scaled back on her character Mira. Heard said, "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." Heard's testimony seems to confirm an insider report published by TMZ in early May that Heard had "less than 10 minutes of screen time" in the DC film.

This all comes after a fan started an online petition to have Warner Bros. remove Amber Heard from the "Aquaman" sequel altogether. So far, the petition has managed to garner over 4 million signatures in support. The petition's author claims that Heard "has systematically crusaded to ruin Depp in Hollywood" and urges the studio to "do the right thing" by removing Heard from the motion picture. In other words, not even a DC comic superhero can save this mess.
