It seems as though people really don’t want Amber Heard to play Mera in Aquaman 2 as the petition to have her removed from the film is getting very close to 1 million signatures. If it reaches that goal, then it would be one of the most signed petitions on Change.org.
There seems to have been a sudden wave of signatures on this petition after Johnny Depp lost his libel case against The Sun. He was suing UK newspaper after they referred to him as a “wife-beater” in one of their articles.
He ended up losing the case, and people the took to Change.org to sign the petition to have his ex-wife, Amber Heard, removed from Aquaman 2. She is playing Mera in that movie, and this reaction might have also come after it was revealed that Warner Bros. Pictures had asked Depp to step down from the role of Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts movies.
Almost one million people have signed the petition to have Amber Heard removed from Aquaman 2
If this petition ends up reaching one million signatures, it would end up being one of the most popular petitions on the website. As of writing this article, the petition stands at 898 669.
That number’s been going up very quickly over the last few days, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it hit one million before the start of 2021. There are a lot of people who feel that Johnny Depp was done a disservice and that Heard should also be held accountable for her actions in this whole affair.
Let’s wait and see what happens as far as her being in Aquaman 2 is concerned. As far as I know, she is doing additional photography on Zack Snyder’s Justice League, so it looks like she’s still going to be involved in the DCEU moving forward.
