Aquaman proved to be DC’s most successful solo movie ever, but there are doubts over the sequel due to Amber Heard’s Hollywood scandal with ex-Johnny Depp
According to an exclusive report from Just Jared, Amber Heard will be cut from Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom
Warner Bros. just recently held a test screening for the move gave Heard’s Mera an extended screen time of 20-25 minutes.
It’s safe to say fans weren’t happy with the news.
The insider says Warner Bros. will be conducting reshoots for the sequel with Jason Mamoa and Nicole Kidman, with Heard being recast as Mera for Aquaman 2 and future appearances.
But Amber Heard’s rep has slammed the claims
“The rumor mill continues as it has from day one — inaccurate, insensitive, and slightly insane,” a spokesperson for Heard tells PEOPLE magazine in response to the report.
DC Films President previously testified in Heard’s defamation trial against Johnny Depp that the studio had conversations about recasting the actress.
The news of a reported recast comes after a viral boycott of Aquaman 2 began to spread over social media due to backlash towards Heard.
Now the question is – who will replace Heard if there was to be a recast?
Well that’s all up in the air, but going off the assumption that DC will be looking for an actress of similar age to the 36-year-old Heard, some popular choices among fans have included Blake Lively and upcoming star Emilia Clarke.
Aquaman 2 is set for the screens early next year.
