filmAt the premiere of the new Aquaman movie, fans had to pay close attention to catch a glimpse of Amber Heard, but in the latest teaser the actress can no longer be seen at all. Rumors have been circulating for some time that Heard’s role has been reduced following the negative attention she attracted following her much-discussed lawsuit with ex-husband Johnny Depp. And with this new teaser, it seems that these rumors have been increasingly proven.
After barely getting a second of screen time in the previous trailer, Amber Heard was completely cut from the latest teaser. The actress reprises her role as Mera, daughter of King Nereus and also the flame of main character Aquaman (Jason Momoa), in the film Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
Following her controversial lawsuit with ex-husband Johnny Depp, it was claimed that Heard’s role would be severely reduced. During the trial, Amber said she had to fight hard to keep her role in the movie, but they “didn’t want to put her in the movie.” “I was given a script and new versions of that script were made every time,” the actress said. “Scenes were removed every time.”
However, director James Wan has since denied the allegations. He stressed that it was never the intention to focus too much on Mira’s character. The first was a romantic action film, and the second was a romantic action film. We’ll leave it at that.” The film will now focus on the relationship between the main character and his brother Orm, played by Patrick Wilson.
But is it that simple? Last month, production on the new “Aquaman” movie was plagued with drama when notes from Heard’s therapy session surfaced — as of December 2021. The actress claimed that her co-star Jason Momoa was intentionally dressing up as Johnny Depp. In addition, he reportedly insisted on firing the actress when he appeared drunk during filming.
However, according to an insider who was present during filming in 2021, there’s none of that. Heard and Momoa seemed to get along well on set. “Jason works his ass off and likes to have a beer every now and then like everyone else, but he doesn’t show up on set drunk. And he doesn’t dress like Johnny Depp. He’s always dressed in that ‘bohemian style.’
In addition to Amber Heard, Jason Momoa and Patrick Wilson, the new Aquaman film also stars Willem Dafoe, Dolph Lundgren and Nicole Kidman, as well as Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Temuera Morrison. The film will be released in December this year.
