Why do fans want Amber Heard fired from Aquaman 2?
After the name of the film was released in June 2021, Depp fans put together a petition to have Heard fired from the franchise following the head-to-head battle of Depp’s libel suit against The Sun.
In November 2020, a court sided with The Sun after the paper referred to him as a “wife-beater,” and as a result, Warner Bros. asked him to resign from his role as Gellert Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise.
Fans were upset about his resignation and felt that Heard should not have a place in the Aquaman sequel as a result.
Despite the petition, producers told Deadline that they have no plans on removing her from the film.
“One is not unaware of what is going on in the Twitter-verse, but that doesn’t mean you have to react to it or take it as gospel or accede to their wishes,” Peter Safran told Deadline.
“You have to do what’s right for the film, and that’s really where we landed on it.”
What happened between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp?
Heard met ex-husband Depp on the set of The Rum Diary in 2011.
They began living together the following year following Depp’s split from Vanessa Paradis, and married at a private civil ceremony at their home in LA on February 3, 2015.
However, the couple split in May the following year, and officially divorced in January 2017 citing “irreconcilable differences”.
Amber claims that Depp hit her several times in March 2013 amid a string of domestic abuse allegations leveled at the actor during their relationship.
She told the High Court how Depp would threaten to “carve” her face up if she ever left him or hurt him.
She said: “He explicitly threatened to kill me many times. He would blame all his actions on a self-created third person, which he often called The Monster.
“He talked about our relationship being ‘dead or alive’ and told me that death was the only way out of the relationship.
“He described what he wanted to do to me if I left him or hurt him, for example, carving my face up so no one else would want me.”
And the star also claimed Depp would “demean” her if she wore anything seen as sexy – calling her a “w***e, s**t and fame hungry”.
Heard added: “He started saying things like, ‘Well I’m going to have to watch you get raped’ and ‘I hope you get railed by a bunch of f***ing fellas.’”
But Depp denied the allegations, branding them “complete lies” at the High Court on July 7, 2020.
