Amber Heard was almost fired from the DC blockbuster «Aquaman 2» – but Johnny Depp is said to have nothing to do with it — cinema news

2017 WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC. AND RATPAC-DUNE ENTERTAINMENT LLC

Online fan culture took on an ugly side when some DC supporters launched a social media campaign calling on the Warner film studio to part ways with actress Amber Heard , who played Mena in the hit song Aquaman ‘ and from Justice League. The demand alone was not the problem, but the reasoning behind it was questionable: since Heard’s ex-husband Johnny Depp had lost his part as the villain Grindelwald in the «Fantastic Beasts» franchise under pressure from Warner, it was only fair that Heard too to fire.

Everyone is free to form their own opinion on the dispute between the ex-couple, which these days is being continued in a defamation lawsuit. In fact, Amber Heard has not been convicted — at least so far — of making false statements to her ex-husband and colleagues , while Depp’s 2020 trial failed against the British tabloid The Sun , which is now allowed to continue calling him a «wife beater».

Because the court saw it as proven that Depp beat his wife during the short marriage. Against this background, the logic behind the fan campaign to just fire both parties to the dispute, in fairness, seems pretty wacky (and one can assume that many Depp fans in the campaign simply acted out of anger).

As the journalist and lawyer Matthew Belloni now writes in a newsletter article about the current trial between Depp and Heard, the return of the actress in the upcoming blockbuster » Aquaman 2 » was really on the brink internally in the studio — but nothing to do with that had to do with an argument, but quite simply with her performance in the first film.

Warner is said to have initially rejected Heard for «Aquaman 2».

As the well-connected Matthew Belloni reports , Warner is said to have initially actually refused to bring Amber Heard back for «Aquaman 2». Belloni relies on a statement by Walter Hamada that the DC film boss is said to have made during a three-hour interrogation in the preliminary court proceedings (during a so-called deposition ). The statement is also to be used in the current process in the near future. After that, Warner is said to have taken care of the chemistry between leading actor Jason Momoa and Amber Heard. In fact, the first «Aquaman» film is criticized, among other things, for the fact that the two main characters simply don’t crackle, although they are said to have a romantic relationship.

It remains unknown whether this chemistry was decisive or whether Warner was not primarily concerned about the legal dispute and possible image damage. In any case, «Aquaman 2» starts according to current planning on March 16, 2023 and by then the defamation process that has now started, in which Johnny Depp and Amber Heard accuse each other of lying and each demand millions in damages from each other, could have produced all sorts of unpleasant headlines.

The fact is: Warner finally decided that Amber Heard would continue to play Mena – however, Heard had already suffered financial damage as a result of the process, as her legal team is now arguing.

Amber Head complains about poor pay

In the current trial, Amber Heard claims that her career has already suffered and, in addition to a lack of role offers, cites as an example that, unlike co-star Jason Momoa, she was unable to negotiate better pay for «Aquaman 2» compared to the first film. With worldwide box office earnings of 1.1 billion US dollars, «Aquaman» is the highest-grossing DC film of all time and it would therefore actually be absolutely unusual in the industry if this were not reflected in increased remuneration for all stars.

It will be interesting to see how big the role of Amber Heard will be in «Aquaman 2». It’s possible that Heard’s pay is due to the fact that Mena’s part was downsized compared to Part 1, whether as a result of her falling out with Johnny Depp, her lack of chemistry with Jason Momoa, or some other reason. In any case, what we know about the film so far indicates that it will primarily be about Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and his half-brother Orm Marius, played by Patrick Wilson .
