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.
Johnny Depp Vs. Amber Heard – the defamation trial of the century
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.
DC Films president already tried to remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2
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).
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.
Will all movie studios sever ties with Amber Heard after Johnny Depp defamation trial?
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.
