Pouring cold water after rumors started circulating that Amber Heard was kicked out of her role in Aquaman 2.
People continue to question the actress’ status in the upcoming DC films, despite knowing that she lost a famous defamation lawsuit to Johnny Depp.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Amber Heard’s role is cut from Aquaman 2.
Reports began last week that Amber Heard was permanently removed from Aquaman 2.
Moreover, sources claim that Warner Bros. has recast Heard as Mera in ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’.
He also said that he plans to re-shoot with stars such as Jason Momoa and Nicole Kidman soon.
But recently, the actress’s spokesperson stepped in to clean the air.
‘The rumors aren’t as accurate as they have been going on from day one, they’re dull and a little crazy,’ they told EW.
A spokesperson for Amber Heard said she would not be cast again in ‘Aquaman 2’ after reports claimed she was kicked out of the sequel.
I mean, why is she like that? She’s just domestic violence. She didn’t hurt anyone, was she? Oh wait, what exactly does that mean! https://t.co/YD0MFXCROk

Warner Bros. has yet to respond to the ongoing rumors.
But in reality, Heard doesn’t say how long she’ll be in the movie or if she’ll be cast again.
Warner Bros. filmed all of her scenes about a year ago. They also paid her $2 million for her role. So contractually speaking, the deal between Heard and the studio is over.
If Warner Bros removes Amber Heard from Aquaman 2, I think her film career is over. Her locking her up gives her a chance to “come back” her. It’s really sad to see her taking her big break. #judicial league #aquaman #aquaman 2

Amber Heard’s role was reduced in Aquaman 2.
The fact that Amber Heard was involved in the Aquaman franchise was a frequently discussed topic in her trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp.
Nevertheless, the case was closed earlier this month when a jury supported the actor of Pirates of the Caribbean.
The jury also determined that Heard defamed the star when he wrote an article for the Washington Post in 2018 claiming he was a victim of domestic violence.
However, during the trial, Heard argued that Warner Bros did not want to include me in a DC superhero sequel.
She also testified that her role was significantly ‘shrunk’ after Depp’s legal team launched a campaign against her.
At the end of the day, you won’t be able to see Aquaman 2 unless Amber Heard is removed. Sorry, Jason Momoa. If it was free, I probably wouldn’t have seen it.

Heard is said to only appear for 10 minutes in the next DC movie.
The 33-year-old actress also noted that she had to ‘fight really hard’ for her roles in Justice League (2017), Aquaman (2018) and the upcoming sequel.
Walter Hamada, president of DC Films at Warner Bros., has been summoned in a high-profile libel case.
He spoke on behalf of Depp’s legal team and denied all claims made by Heard. He made sure that the role of the actress in the film never diminished.
