It’s being reported that Warner Bros. Pictures is just not taking the Amber Heard petitions seriously at all, which might annoy a lot of people. When I say the petitions, I’m talking of the petitions to have Amber Heard fired from Aquaman 2.
One of the petitions has now crossed 1.2 million signatures on Change.org, making it one of the most signed petitions on the platform so far. However, the executives at Warner Bros. Pictures think it’s all been inflated and doesn’t reflect what people really think.
This was revealed via Geekosity’s Mikey Sutton’s sources, who are claiming that WarnerMedia is now considering making a Mera solo movie starring Amber Heard. This sounds incredibly strange to me, but let’s see what happens.
Warner Bros. Pictures is not talking the fire Amber Heard petitions seriously
Here’s what Mikey Sutton’s sources said about Warner Bros. Pictures not taking the petitions to have Amber Heard removed from Aquaman 2 seriously:
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.
I understand where Warner Bros. Pictures might be coming from. However, the fact of the matter is that the petition exists and people are signing it. It’s difficult to get over 1 million fake people to sign an online petition. It’s just not feasible.
