A spokesperson for Amber Heard has denied stories that the actor has been lower from the Aquaman sequel, within the aftermath of the very public defamation trial introduced towards her by means of her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.

Heard used to be set to reprise her position as Mera, Aquaman’s love passion, within the upcoming movie Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. But on Tuesday, an nameless “insider” advised gossip web site Just Jared that the position have been recast.

Just Jared later up to date its tale to mention that resources just about the manufacturing had advised them she had “not been completely cut from the film. She still has a small role.” However, it insisted different resources nonetheless maintained Mera used to be being totally recast.

Heard in the past performed Mera within the first Aquaman movie and in Justice League. During the defamation trial, Heard alleged she needed to “fight really hard” to stay the position, because of the unfavourable exposure from Depp’s abuse allegations towards her.

“I don’t care what one thinks about me or what judgments you want to make about what happened in the privacy of my own home, in my marriage, behind closed doors,” she stated. “I don’t presume the average person should know those things. And so I don’t take it personally.

“But even somebody who is sure I’m deserving of all this hate and vitriol, even if you think that I’m lying, you still couldn’t look me in the eye and tell me that you think on social media there’s been a fair representation. You cannot tell me that you think that this has been fair.”

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is about to be launched around the globe in March 2023.
