Amber Heard Reacts to Explosive Report That She Was Cut From Aquaman 2 After Losing Lawsuit

Amber Heard has denied a report that she will be cut from ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ and her role as Mera is being recast.

“Warner Brothers has decided to recast Amber Heard’s role after screen testing the film,” an insider reportedly told JustJared.

They were going to do covers with stars Jason Momoa and Nicole Kidman, the source said.

However, a representative for Heard denied the rumor to The Post, saying in a statement that “the rumor continues as it has since day one” and that it was “inaccurate, insensitive and slightly insane”.

The Post also sought comment from representatives of Warner Bros.

The troubled actress’ eviction comes after her high-profile defamation lawsuit with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

During her high-profile defamation lawsuit with ex-husband Johnny Depp, the troubled 36-year-old actress claimed Warner Brothers “didn’t want to include me” in the DC Comics sequel.

Heard also noted that she was “actively planning the timing” of the superhero movie until Depp’s legal team launched a campaign against her. She said her scenes were scaled down significantly in the film.

“I was given a script, then new versions of the script which had removed scenes containing action, which depicted my character and another character, without giving spoilers, two characters fighting against each other another, and they basically took a little bit out of my role,” she told the courtroom in Fairfax, Va. “They just took out a bunch of them.”

Heard claimed in his testimony that the studio “didn’t want to include him” in the new project.

Heard’s WME agent, Jessica Kovacevic, testified during the trial that Warner Bros. claimed that it was Heard’s “lack of chemistry” with her “Aquaman” co-star Jason Momoa that almost put her on the candy. However, Momoa reportedly pleaded for the actress to keep the role. Additionally, Kovacevic said she believed the studio wanted Heard removed as Princess Mera due to “bad press” resulting from the court case.

“Nobody wants this association,” Kovacevic said.

Kovacevic also touched on Heard’s career before and after her relationship with Depp, 58, saying she should have become a major star after the first film premiered in late 2018, which grossed over $1 billion.

Heard has previously testified about the alleged impact on her career as a result of her relationship with Depp.

“I’ve lost opportunities. I’ve been fired from jobs and campaigns. I’ve fought to keep my job and the biggest film opportunity I’ve had to date. [with] ‘Justice League’ with the possibility of [star in] “Aquaman,” she said, adding that she had to “fight really hard” to be in “Justice League” because it happened around the time of their divorce. Depp and Heard were married from 2015 to 2017.
