It’s been revealed that Warner Bros. Pictures can’t actually fire Amber Heard from Aquaman 2 even if they wanted to. It all has to do with her contract which means that we will be getting her playing Mera in Aquaman 2.
There are a lot of people out there who really do not want Amber Heard to star in Aquaman 2. There’s even a petition on Change.org which has now hit well over one million signatures demanding that Warner Bros. have her removed from the movie.
Well, it looks like we won’t be seeing Warner Bros. fire her any time soon. One of the reasons could have to do with her contract which makes it very difficult for the movie studio to have her fired from the movie.
Warner Bros. Pictures can’t fire Amber Heard from Aquaman 2 even if they wanted to
Here’s what Screen Rant wrote about Warner Bros. Pictures not being able to fire Amber Heard from Aquaman 2:
Warner Bros. cannot fire Heard for the same reasons they could not fire Depp. Typically it is impossible for a studio to break their contract with an actor unless criminal charges have been filed against them. While the court of public opinion may have found Heard guilty of being abusive toward her former husband, the teaming masses have no power in an American civil or criminal court. Likewise, the studio cannot ask Heard to step down as they did Depp, as there has been no civil judgement against her.
