They’re claiming that Warner Bros. has placed a “gag order” on their actors, which means that they cannot discuss anything involving the two actors. Therefore, they cannot comment on Depp being basically fired from Fantastic Beasts 3. Nor can they comment on whether Amber Heard will be in Aquaman 2 or not.
This could be one of the reasons why Mads Mikkelsen recently said in an interview with IGN that he hadn’t heard anything from Warner Bros. about the Grindelwald role. Perhaps he’s already signed the contract and therefore has been placed under a gag order. That would make sense.
Warner Bros. actors reportedly under a “gag order” and can’t discuss anything to do with Amber Heard and Johnny Depp
Here’s what The Geek Buzz wrote on the whole “gag order” thing with Warner Bros. Pictures banning its actors under contract from talking about Amber Heard and Johnny Depp:
The studio has, in effect, gag orders, strict rules regarding speaking out about ongoing legal cases that could affect the studio and this really isn’t any different than rules in place at any corporation. Ms. Heard has her allies at Warner just as Mr. Depp does but only one of them has suffered a legal setback. Once next year’s defamation trial in Virginia is over, and all parties have settled the various counter-suits filed, the gag order will be relaxed some. Expect their co-stars to be a little more forthcoming.
