The Petition To Remove Amber Heard From Aquaman 2 Is Nearing 1 Million Signatures

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

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 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.

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.

    People are being idiotic. Johnny and Amber were in a abusive relationship. Both made mistakes, but all the Johnny fans are taking it out on Heard. Mind your own business! The courts will settle it. If the Johnny fans hadn’t of created such a stink, Johnny probably wouldn’t have been fired for not being able to prove he wasn’t an abuser after suing that newspaper.

    Yes I signed because I’m an ACTUAL survivor of domestic abuse and I find it deplorable of her to gaslight this man and the public in to thinking he is a monster when in reality and PROVEN to be, she is in fact an abusive monster… even before Johnny Depp. She’s advanced her career meanwhile destroying his, all in the name of the metoo movement and it makes me sick to my stomach.

    This is so stupid, just because Johnny Depp was asked to leave a show dose not mean they should try to force a great actress to leave the ‘Aquaman 2’ movie. She was amazing in the first Aquaman. This potition is just a bunch of 2 year olds taking a tempotantrum.

    What happens in actors personal lives shouldn’t have any bearing on their acting abilities nor should it affect movies that they’re a part of. Having said that Aquaman 2 is going to make great money at the box office even if she’s a part of the movie franchise. Just because some people’s opinions which they’re entitled to favor her ex husband doesn’t mean that Amber Heard should be taken out of the movie which she plays an integral part in. The studio’s chosen to possibly exclude Johnny Depp from their movie franchise which is their prerogative. It wasn’t because a bunch of people signed a petition.

    I don’t sign petitions as a matter of principle but I fully throw my support behind this.

    To those saying her personal life shouldn’t matter towards her acting: you are right, but neither should Depp’s. But I also can’t accept double standards as a matter of principle, so if the evidence that Depp committed DA is enough to make him unmarketable it should be for her as well. Women aren’t children, they should be held to account for their actions.

    The fact that the meetoo movement has been high jacked to promote calcel culture and disregard victims if genders are associate. Victims have no gender. And let’s be honest. Any normal person would want to prove their innocence. Johnny has done that. He is human. Not just a “celebrity”. I follow the case because of justice I believe he deserves. People took Amber’s word for it. He provided evidence. Yet her word still stands. ABSOLUTELY Disgusting. This case is a voice for many victims, including many women not just men that has suffered similar, and have a radar of the truth. We all can be emotional and broken like johnny clearly is, that does not determine he abuses women.
    Compared to johnny, Amber has a criminal record. Johnny has never been convicted, yet been treated like he was guilty. All he did was try and stand up for himself and because he’s a man. He can’t be abused? What in the world are we doing as a society allowing these views to overrule. It’s about Equality not superiority.

    I think it’s up to the studio to decide whether she stays based on talent, not legal drama. I’m a Johnny Depp fan, I was sad that he lost the case, but I knew that the repercussions of the trail might affect Amber too, and unfortunately it took the form of people bullying her online. What happens between a couple is between them, but if we are going to judge people, let’s rather judge them on their talent. Honestly, I didn’t think she was great in Aquaman: she was boring and had the personality of a piece of wood. It was a horrible casting choice that baffled me then, and still baffles me now. If they should replace her with someone else, let it be on the basis of talent and not court drama

    Ahh yes Edward. So much for journalistic integrity. You remove your comment and mine to hide your mistake rather than just admitting it open and honestly.

    You really are insecure, I suppose that’s why you had to start your own third-rate trash-tier media outlet.

    Nobody want’s to hire a journalist who doesn’t have the brain cells to navigate their own comments section on their own website.

      Thanks. I saw the comment on the WordPress app. It doesn’t show all the comments chronologically. I was really curious to see what the grammatical errors were if there were any. You really don’t have to be rude. I’m leaving your comment up because I don’t like deleting other people’s comments on the site, but you are being really rude and I hope you can give a second look at your comment and have a good think about how you use your words

    Hi Edward,

    Ignore my last message. I’ve had a rough day and I shouldn’t be taking it out on you.

    The reason it provoked me so much as to even spend any time at all writing this is because of how condescending your comment came across to the other poster. When in fact you had made a mistake, not him.

    It was such a small mistake though, miniscule. I don’t blame you at all for deleting the comment. It’s much easier than having to deal with all of this, people like me.

    Anyway, I understand why you were so defensive about your work. You clearly put in some effort and research, and you’re right about it, there aren’t any grammatical errors at all. It’s a great piece of work.

    You keep doing you. Genuinely good luck with Small-Screen, I hope it gets more traction and becomes very popular. If it doesn’t then at least you have something interesting for your CV, so no harm at all in giving it a good run.

    I wish you the best, and hope you didn’t take anything that I said before to heart.

    My sincere apologies,

    Billy Big Balls.

      To add to this…

      Please feel free to delete my previous comment (or all of them). You are right, its rude.

      I don’t feel it provides anything constructive and the criticism is very unfair, I completely overreacted.

      Sorry – I hope I haven’t upset your evening, once again I’d like to extend to you my sincere apologies.


Have your say...
