Amber Heard hit where it hurts. Johnny Depp just lost his appeal against the latest UK court ruling in his “wife beater” case. This led to his exit from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
New reports claim that the Jack Sparrow actor’s ex-wife Amber Heard is “in talks” with Margot Robbie. She wants to join Johnny’s former franchise herself.
Johnny Depp portrayed the main protagonist of the Pirates of the Carribbean Movie series. Due to his portrayal of Jack Sparrow, the Disney franchise was a massive hit. Depp was removed from his other major franchise too. Earlier this month, Warner Bros announced it had asked him to withdraw from the Fantastic Beasts movies. He was playing the main villain Gellert Grindelwald.
There has been fan outrage calling for the firing of Heard from Aquaman 2. Hence it would be salt on the wound if a new rumor is to be believed. Moreover, this would put Heard in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
The Inside Story
Amber Heard has spoken to Margot Robbie about possibly appearing in her Pirates of the Caribbean spinoff series. Meanwhile sources are not clear, or how far Heard has gotten into this process. Heard’s casting would be the ultimate check-mate to her ex-husband.
Moreover, Disney also hired Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson for the project. Disney probably is looking for a female-centered Pirates spinoff with a gang of new pirates. But there is a fair chance that this news is not actual piece of potential casting news. It also can be a really articulated and clever joke between Margot Robbie and Amber Heard.
Amber her reprises her role in Zack Snyder’s Justice League next year. She also has a major project “Aquaman 2” in 2022.
