According to the Change.Org the “Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2” has crossed over 1.8 million signatures. That much number of people are reflecting on Amber Heard over Depp’s replacement. This can actually lead to Heard’s removal from Aquaman 2. Remove Amber Heard petition’s moral point is the actress is a “known and proven domestic abuser”.
Fans even threatened Warner Brothers that if they don’t replace Heard as they did to Johnny Depp, they will boycott both Aquaman 2 and Fantastic Beasts 3. This scenario can lead to Warner Brothers’ huge loss. Aquaman was DC’s one of the highest grossed movies and the Fantastic Beasts franchise was superhit too. If Warner Brothers do not take any decision in near future, they might face backlash.
Interestingly in November 2020, Amber Heard gave an interview to Entertainment Weekly, regarding her reprising role in Aquaman 2. Heard said:” I’m super excited about the amount of fan love and fan appreciation that Aquaman has acquired and that it has garnered so much excitement for Aquaman and Mera that it means we’ll be coming back.” She added: “I’m so excited to film that”.
In case of the online petition against her, the actress also gave her opinion to Entertainment Weekly. She had denied all the facts that this petition will affect her or her career. According to Heard: “Paid rumors and paid campaigns on social media don’t dictate [casting decision] because they have no brains in reality. Only the fans actually made ‘Aquaman’ & ‘Aquaman 2’ happen. I’m excited to get started next year.”
However all this will get cleared after Warner Brothers will give any confirmation about the Aquaman 2. Till then we have to wait for the results.
