• Amber Heard starred in Aquaman back in 2018
  • Her image was damaged by her trial with Johnny Depp
  • Will she still be in the Aquaman sequel after it all?

Amber Heard starred as "Princess Mera" alongside Jason Momoa in the first installment of Aquaman. But according to rumours, the actress will not be seen in the sequel due to her involvement in the six-week defamation trial with her ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Aquaman: More drama for Amber Heard after the trial

To Just Jared, an insider made the claim: "Warner Bros. decided to recast Amber Heard's role after screentesting the movie. They are going to be doing reshoots with Jason Momoa and Nicole Kidman."

Warner Bros. itself has not yet commented on the matter. Speaking to TMZ, a spokesperson for Amber Heard denied the allegations. "The rumor mill continues as it has from day one – inaccurate, insensitive and slightly insane," they said.

On the stand, Amber Heard testified that she had to fight to keep her role in the Aquaman sequel. "They released me from my contract, and I fought to stay in it, and they kept me in it," the actress said. "I don't know if I will even be in the final cut or how much I will be."

Just Jared also corrected the original report based on another source. "Amber has not been completely cut from the film. She still has a small role," reads the latest update.

We'll just have to wait and see if Amber Heard is actually in the new Aquaman. It opens in theatres in March 2023.
