It’s being reported by Geekosity’s Mikey Sutton that Warner Bros. Pictures is now considering making a solo Mera movie with Amber Heard as the lead. This comes after it was revealed that WarnerMedia would find it very difficult to fire Heard from Aquaman 2 due to her contract.
So, it was revealed a few days ago that Heard is almost impossible to fire. However, it now sounds as if she’s going to get her own movie, which I’m pretty sure will rub people the wrong way.
The idea of an Amber Heard-lead Mera spinoff movie does sound rather farfetched to me, especially given how unpopular the actress is at the moment. That unpopularity has to do with the whole Johnny Depp court case and the fact that people believe she’s not as innocent as she claims to be in this whole affair.
It’s all resulted in a petition on Change.org demanding Warner Bros. Pictures removes her from Aquaman 2 reaching over 1 million signatures. That’s made it one of the most signed petitions on the platform, which is bonkers!
Amber Heard might be getting her own Mera spinoff movie
Anyway, back to this Mera spinoff movie. According to Mikey Sutton, Warner Bros. Pictures isn’t listening to what’s going on online, despite the petition’s rediculous number of signatures.
Here’s what Sutton wrote in his scoop:
An insider explained that, ‘They see it no differently than the boycott of Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel film, which proved to be ineffective as it brought in over a billion to Disney. They believe it’s artificially inflated and most likely politically motivated. They don’t base their decisions on web chatter.’
