Is Amber Heard’s Career Finished After Johnny Depp Defamation Trial?


Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are currently battling it out in court in the defamation trial of the century and it’s looking like it might spell bad news for Heard’s future career prospects.

Johnny Depp has been taking the stand over the past few days and has been trying to clear his name.

Whilst under oath in court, Depp revealed that he just wanted to truth to finally come out.

This all comes after Depp lost his defamation trial against The Sun newspaper in the UK for referring to the actor as a “wife-beater” in an article.

Well, it’s looking like the truth is coming out in this current $50 million defamation trial against Amber Heard.

Now, the case is far from over. However, Depp’s testimony makes for interesting reading/listening/watching.

However, his testimony hasn’t been the only interesting one.

It seems as though everyone questioned so far has been in agreement. Heard had no marks on her face.

We’ve had testimony from Johnny Depp’s bodyguard, Sean Bett, artist, Isaac Baruch and Amber Heard’s former PA, Kate James.

They all agreed that Heard had no marks on her face.

Isaac’s testimony was particularly moving as he ended up breaking into tears over the whole ordeal.

He also revealed that he has no longer been able to paint because of all the stress related to it.

So, the question remains, what will happen to Amber Heard’s career after this defamation trial?

Well, the signs at the minute are not good for the Aquaman actress.

In a really odd turn of events, DC Films’ president, Walter Hamada, offered a three-hour-long testimony against Amber Heard in which he revealed that he tried to get Heard removed from Aquaman 2.

During his testimony at the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard defamation trial (via Facebook), Hamada revealed that they tried to remove Heard from Aquaman 2 (Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom).

Hamada confirmed that the studio has tried to remove the actress from Aquaman 2 because of her “lack of chemistry” with its star, Jason Momoa.

However, he didn’t stop there.

He went on to reveal that the role of Mera was about to be offered to another actress.

He didn’t mention which actress they had in mind to replace Heard in Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom.

This is actually quite telling as it seems as though people in high-up positions inside movie studios have already been attempting to distance themselves from Heard.

We’ve been hearing reports that Warner Bros Pictures is considering breaking their contract with the actress as a result of this trial.

It’s just not good PR for movie studios to be connected to Heard right now.

This all comes after there were reports that Heard was in talks to star in her own standalone Mera series on HBO Max.

We contacted Warner Bros. Pictures representatives for comment on these rumours recently and they did not offer a response.

Given everything that’s come out of the trial already, it’s looking like Heard might become persona non grata in Hollywood.

That said, this might all change once Heard herself takes the stand.

However, given all the evidence and testimony against Heard so far, it’s not looking good for her.

We’ve reached out to our sources close to Warner Bros and HBO Max asking about Heard’s future playing Mera in potential Aquaman sequels.

We have yet to receive a reply, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything on the subject.

    Team Depp. She’s Bisexual, she has a deep rooted hate for men, she plays it both ways so I consider her manipulative. She knows how to play sweet and turn things around quickly, you can see it in her fake reactions in court. it’s disgusting.

    Johnny doesn’t care to win the trail, he has already won, i have a feeling by the end of the trail, she will not be able to get rolls.

    Aquaman 2 was delayed to 2023 in order to edit out/digitally replace Amber Heard’s character ala “Army of the Dead” . Edits have already begun in anticipation of the case result. They will have a Amberless cut ready to go should it not go her way. She has already been paid for her work so there is no obligation to retain her scenes in the film

    They should end her career, as she have lied and bullied JD and ruined HIS career that he had for soo many years. She is fairly new. All the evidence and testimony… She is what ruines it for woman who actually are getting beat up, by lying. Shame on you Amber.

  5. Marlayne Madison

    I hope she does lose the Hollywood contracts. She should go to prison for lying about the abuse when she, in fact, was the abuser. I feel so sad that someone delivered a surrogate baby for her. Who the heck is the father? Did she take the baby to Virginia to be with her during the trial?

  6. David

    I predict a co-starring role for Amber Turd in The Adventures Of Sewer Man. Hopefully Disney will produce the film.

    Aside from her being a pathological liar, and an abuser, she can’t act to save herself. She’s awful. the only reason she got Aquaman was because of Johnny and not on her own talent. Anyway she’ll be too old for the roles she might be able to pull off — sexy, bimbo. Heard is the most hated woman in America right now. Studios would be insane to take her on, so would any men for that matter.

    yes I hope she never works again there are tapes of her admitting to staging the whole abuse lies to get her career back on track

    Regardless of the verdict, Johnny Depp has won. Amber Heard should lose her career, be fined, jailed for fraud or institutionalized if deemed mentally unstable. Her lies have hurt actual abuse victims.

    Aquamarine 2 I WILL NOT WATCH (unfortunate because I liked the first one), simply because Heard is in it. I WILL NOT WATCH ANYTHING with her in it. She is a lying, manipulative, narcissistic, sick person. My heart goes out to Johnny Depp. He is the true victim here. The heart-felt things he’s done, on the sidelines, over the course of his career is amazing. Eg. Visiting sick children as Captain Jack Sparrow is selfless and fanominal. Good for you Johnny. Can’t wait to see what he has in store next for the big screen. Your fans are behind you.
