The fans of the DC Aquaman film series can expect a change in the cast of Aquaman 2. A shred of new evidence has come into light in the ongoing lawsuit between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, who plays Mera in the series.

We discuss the lawsuit between the couple Johnny and Amber and the new evidence which reportedly jeopardize the A-rated Hollywood actress.

The Feud Between Depp And Amber (Aquaman 2)

In 2016, Heard alleged Depp for physically abusing her and filed for divorce. In 2017, the judge granted them divorce and an agreement called for Depp to pay Heard $7 million.

However, in 2019 Amber Heard talked about the domestic abuse in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed. This prompted Depp to file a $50-million defamation case against Amber. He said he has evidence to show he was allegedly on the receiving end of the abuse. The complaint stated that Amber’s claims were β€œcategorically and demonstrably false”.

Heard is also facing criticism on her linkups with Tesla head Elon Musk. On 26 March 2020, DailyMail.com released photos where Amber Heard is seen cuddling up to Elon Musk in the private elevator to Johnny Depp’s penthouse.

What Are The New Evidences?

Johnny Depp recently agreed with The Daily Mail UK who released a bunch of audiotapes of the couple 2016 divorce time. In the audio, Amber Heard not only admitted to striking Johnny but also taunting and mocking him.

One petition was to replace her as Mera in Aquaman. The petition has received more than 400,000 signatures as of now and will soon reach the set goal of 500,000.

What Now For Heard? (Aquaman 2)

Amber Heard’s appeal to stop Johnny Depp’s USD$52 million defamation case against her has already been rejected.

Warner Bros has reportedly fired Amber from the upcoming Aquaman sequel. Others suggests that her screentime is cut short. And it has been subsequently expelled from any future Warner Brothers production indefinitely.

A source β€œclose to the situation” says that WB not β€œcare about the allegations made”. It added that they do not β€œhave an interest in social mediaβ€œ.

This will be a great problem for Amber. Because she might have to pay Johnny Depp if he wins his defamation case against her and she’s only worth USD$9 million.
