Amber Heard Allegedly Features in Aquaman 2 with 11 Speaking Lines

In the upcoming Aquaman 2, actress Amber Heard is reported to have a significantly reduced role, featuring only eleven lines throughout the film.

Heard, who portrayed the character Mera in the original 2018 movie, appears to have her character’s presence considerably diminished in the sequel. This change has led to speculation about the reasons behind the reduction, with some attributing it to Warner Bros’ decision to alter the storyline, while others cite her highly publicized legal battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp as a possible influence.

Business Insider has described Heard’s character in the sequel as “barely a fleshed-out character,” noting that her total screen time is less than 25 minutes. Two months prior, Variety reported that Warner Bros chose to remove a key fight scene involving Mera and the antagonist Black Manta. Additionally, there are claims that a romantic scene between Mera and Aquaman was also excluded, further limiting Heard’s appearance in the film.

Despite signing a three-movie deal with Warner Bros, as reported by Business Insider, the studio allegedly considered removing Heard entirely from the movie. However, contractual obligations might have played a role in retaining her presence in a limited capacity.

Director James Wan, in September, stated that the intention was never to feature Heard as a main character in the sequel. Instead, the focus was shifted to explore the relationship between Aquaman and his estranged brother, Orm, introduced in the new installment.

During her testimony in the defamation trial against Depp on May 16, 2022, Heard discussed her involvement in ‘Aquaman 2.’ She remarked, “I fought really hard to stay in the movie — they didn’t want to include me in the film.” She described her role as a “very pared-down version” of the character she played in the 2018 movie.

Heard further elaborated, saying, “I was given a script and then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes with action depicting my character and another character. They basically took a bunch out of my role. They just removed a bunch out.” This statement indicates a significant reduction in her character’s storyline and action sequences.
