Amber Heard has been fired from the film ‘Aquaman’ and it is not clear who will replace her. The movie is set to be released in 2018, so the production might have to step up their game to keep the release date.
Amber Heard was originally cast as Mera, Aquaman’s wife, but she was fired for personal reasons. Amber Heard has been replaced by Nicole Kidman and there are no more details on what happened with the actress.
The film will be released in 2018, so they need to find someone quickly or they will have to push back their release date.
The Advantages and Disadvantages of Amber Heard’s Performance as Mera in Aquaman
Amber Heard, the actress who plays Mera in Aquaman, is a perfect choice for the role. She has the same attitude and personality as Mera from the comics. Moreover, she is not only an expert in acting but also a very talented dancer.
The movie Aquaman was released on December 14th, 2018 and it became one of the most successful movies of this year. It is also one of the best-rated superhero movies ever with a rating of 8/10 on IMDb and 79% on Rotten Tomatoes.
One of the reasons why people loved this movie so much was Amber Heard’s portrayal of Mera.
How Amber Heard’s Departure Affects Aquaman
Amber Heard’s departure from the role of Mera in Aquaman is a major setback for the DC Extended Universe.
Amber Heard, who played Mera in Justice League, will not be returning to her role in the upcoming Aquaman movie. This is a major setback for the DC Extended Universe, as it means that they will have to recast the role of Mera and find a new actress to play opposite Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.
The movie was originally supposed to be released on December 21st, 2018. However, after Amber Heard’s departure, it has been pushed back to December 14th, 2020.
Amber Heard has not been fired from her role as Mera in ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, contrary to a report that had gone viral saying that the actress had been axed, says ‘Variety’. A spokesperson for Heard said in a statement to Variety, “The rumor mill continues as it has from day one — inaccurate, insensitive, and slightly insane.”
Heard previously played the key role of Mera in the first ‘Aquaman’, a 2018 superhero film based on a DC Comics character of the same name, as well as appearing in ‘Justice League’ and the reconfigured ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Heard’s star power, to quote ‘Variety’, has been muddied in recent months as a result of a very public defamation trial, in which her ex-husband Johnny Depp sued her for a 2018 ‘Washington Post’ column, which ‘The Pirates of the Caribbean’ said had implied that he was physically abusive to her.
The verdict left Heard ordered to pay Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $350,000 in punitive damages, given that the jury decided his reputation and career had been damaged as a result of the publication.
During the trial, notes ‘Variety’, social media heavily favoured Depp over Heard painting him as a folk hero and her as a liar, which led to countless memes and TikTok videos mocking her testimony.
