Wonderful things were expected to happen to Johnny Depp after he won the defamation trial. But so far there has been no update whatsoever on his return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. But instead, as worrying news for his fans, comes an increase in screen time for Amber Heard in Aquaman 2. Scroll below for more details!
As most know, the defamation trial lasted almost a month in May. Many revelations have been made about Amber and the Aquaman 2 script. The actress claimed that her role was drastically reduced due to her ex-husband’s allegations. Additionally, she revealed how she failed to get a raise and “fought with her life” to be part of the Jason Momoa lead.
According to a recent report, Amber Heard will star in Aquaman 2 for 20 to 25 minutes. A test screening was reportedly conducted by the creators, where the actress was a part of the film from start to finish. With Johnny Depp’s defamation trial over, Warner Bros. tests viewers’ reactions.
It was previously said that Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom will only see Amber Heard for about 10 minutes. In addition, it has been said that her role could be eliminated prematurely or even entirely. But clearly, that’s not the case.
Netizens have been slamming Warner Bros. since the news broke.
One user wrote: “Over 4.5million people signed up not to have her in it…but they decide to go ahead and test the waters LOL…sounds like my toddler after I told her no your toy won’t.” float when you throw it in water. AND she does it anyway… a toy never to be seen again.”
Another commented: “Well that’s disappointing. I guess I won’t see #Aquaman2 while she’s still in it. If they come out and say she’s been completely removed from the film, I’ll check it out. But don’t fool me I will be the person who will sue for being misled into using my money to see it.
“@warnerbros you seriously need to check yourself. We must treat people equally, and that includes when a woman has a record of abusing her husband. If AH were a man you wouldn’t dare,” wrote one user.
One Johnny Depp fan wrote, “The Warner brothers are going to lose a lot of money keeping them in it.”
I just received confirmation that the latest #Aquaman2 Test screening that took place today still had Amber Heard from start to finish. WB is likely testing the waters with the public now that the trial is over.
