Amber Heard insisted Tuesday that she’s still included in the second “Aquaman” movie and slammed a report that she’d been cut.
“The rumor mill continues as it has from day one — inaccurate, insensitive and slightly insane,” a Heard rep told Variety.
Legions of Johnny Depp fans have created petitions demanding Heard be removed from “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.” She starred as Mera alongside Jason Momoa in the original “Aquaman” film in 2018.
A tabloid report earlier Tuesday said Heard’s role had been recast. Such a decision would be expensive and time-intensive given that “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” is scheduled to debut March 17, 2023.
Heard has already finished filming her parts for the second “Aquaman” film, so Warner Bros. will have final say on whether, or how much, Heard’s character appears in the film.
Warner Bros. executive Walter Hamada implied that Heard’s screen time was relatively limited while he was testifying at Heard and Depp’s defamation trial.
Heard was ordered to pay Depp just over $10 million after a jury found her liable for defamation. Depp was ordered to pay $2 million to Heard for her counterclaims.
“To my dying day, I will stand by every word of my testimony,” she told Savannah Guthrie in a “Today” show interview that aired Tuesday.
