We’re not quite sure that Aquaman 2 is going to come out, and at the moment we’re not very sure who’s going to star in the movie.
We do know that Aquaman 2 will see James Wan return to direct and Jason Mamoa will play the lead character once again.
We don’t know when the film will start shooting or whether Amber Heard will end up returning to play Mera in the movie.
And there have been some people who have felt very strongly on the matter and believe that she should get to return to the DCEU after Johnny Depp’s recent lawsuit against his ex-wife.
Some fans have taken to Change.org to start a petition to get Heard removed from Aquaman 2 and it’s now reached over 30,000 signatures.
DC Comics fans really want Amber Heard removed from Aquaman 2
Here are some highlights from the petition’s script:
“Amber Heard has been exposed as a domestic abuser by Johnny Depp. In his $50 million lawsuit, Johnny Depp describes many incidents of domestic abuse that he suffered at the hands of his (then) wife Amber Heard, including one incident where she punched him twice in the face and another where she shattered his finger with a vodka bottle, and his finger had to be surgically reattached. He will bear the scar from that for the rest of his life.
Since Heard’s divorce from Johnny Depp, she has systematically crusaded to ruin Depp in Hollywood, repeating multiple accounts of fake incidents in which she had actually abused Johnny Depp, but lied and created false accounts of him being the abuser.
As Amber Heard is a known and proven domestic abuser, Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment should and must remove Heard from their Aquaman 2 film project. They must not ignore the suffering of Heard’s victims, and must not glamorize a domestic abuser. Men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women. This must be recognized, and action must be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry.
Do the right thing. Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2.”
I mean, this is all rather extreme and we’re going to have to wait until this dispute between Heard and Johnny Depp is all resolved.
