REVEALED – Is Amber Heard getting recast in Aquaman 2?

Published

on

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.

Ed Sheeran admits he “didn’t want to live anymore” after death of friends

Published

The 32-year-old has been dealing with depression in the past, and felt the feelings resurface last year

 
Ed Sheeran has opened up during a new interview with Rolling Stone.

The hugely-popular singer-songwriter says he “didn’t want to live any more” after the deaths of his friends SBTV founder Jamal Edwards and cricketer Shane Warne.

Edwards gave Sheeran his first big break and died suddenly from a heart attack in after taking cocaine and drinking alcohol.

Sheeran believes the tragedy convinced him to kick a drug habit he himself had developed in his 20s.

Sheeran says he has been dealing with depression “throughout [his] life” and felt the feelings resurface last year.

A parent to two young girls, Sheeran was worried his thoughts were “selfish” and as a father he “felt really embarrassed about it”.

The 32-year-old credits his wife with encouraging him to seek help.

“The help isn’t a button that is pressed, where you’re automatically OK. It is something that will always be there and just has to be managed.”

‘Winnie The Pooh’ horror film to not be shown in Hong Kong or Macau

Published

on

Many believe it relates to a string of protests against Xi Jinping

 
The new ‘Winnie the Pooh’ horror film has officially hit cinemas – but if you live in Hong Kong or Macau, sorry, unfortunately you won’t get a chance to see it.

Cinemas in these regions have refused to show the movie and, while the exact reason remains unclear, many believe it relates to a string of protests against Xi Jinping.

References to the original, family-friendly version of Winnie the Pooh have been used to protest against the Chinese president in recent years.

Censors in China have since clamped down on references to AA Milne’s character, and the 2018 Christopher Robin film was banned in the country.

Hong Kong authorities have denied the film had been censored, but the director told Reuters: “The cinemas agreed to show it, then all independently came to the same decision overnight. It [isn’t] a coincidence.”

The film has been shown in over 4,000 cinemas worldwide.

But perhaps it’s for the best it was banned in Hong Kong and Macau – the horror flick has received a score of just four per cent on film rating site Rotten Tomatoes.

It depicts Pooh bear, known for being kind and honest, as a vengeful axe wielding half-man, half-bear.

The rapper was shot and killed in Florida in June 2018

The three men accused of killing 20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion during a 2018 ambush robbery have been found guilty.

A Florida jury convicted Michael Boatwright, Dedrick Williams and Trayvon Newsome on Monday after deliberating for more than a week.

All three were charged with first-degree murder in connection to the death of the controversial rapper.

Another man, Robert Allen, pleaded guilty last year to second-degree murder.

The three face a possible sentence of life behind bars.

The rapper was shot and killed in Florida in June 2018 while visiting a motorcycle shop.

He was leaving when he was approached by two armed masked men who “demanded property” from him.

At least one of the men shot him during a 45-second struggle and the suspects then grabbed a bag full of $50,000 in cash that the rapper had just withdrawn.
