Amber Heard will be “cut from Aquaman 2” and have her $2,000,000 role recast, sources claim. These claims come just hours after Amber Heard landed herself in yet another scandal when she repeated her abuse allegations against Johnny Depp. 

Just Jared reports that the actress, 36, has been dropped from the filming of the sequel to 2018’s sci-fi movie. Warner Bros had’screentested’ the movie and determined that Heard should have scenes reshot by another actress. 

‘Warner Bros. decided to recast Amber Heard’s role after screentesting the movie,’ a source claimed to the website. “They will be shooting reshoots.” [her former co-stars]Nicole Kidman and Jason Momoa reached out to Warner Bros. in an attempt for comments. However, a spokesperson from Heard furiously denied that their client had been axed from the film. Heard stated: “The rumor mill continues like it did from day one — inaccurate and insensitive. And slightly insane.”  

Serious doubts were already cast over Heard’s future with the DC franchise during her and Depp’s marathon six-week defamation trial, during which Warner Bros executive Walter Hamada testified that producers had already considered recasting the actress over concerns about her lack of ‘natural chemistry’ with co-star Momoa.

A petition online to be Heard was started at the conclusion of legal proceedings. It received 4.6 million signatures within a few weeks. 

Amber Heard is 'being cut from Aquaman 2 and her role will be recast', sources have claimed, just weeks after she lost her defamation trial against Johnny Depp and was ordered to pay him more than $8 million in damages

Sources claim Amber Heard will be cut from Aquaman 2 while her role is being recast. This comes just weeks after her loss in her case against Johnny Depp for defamation and she was forced to pay $8 million damages.  

The claims come two weeks after the end of a six-week defamation trial between Heard (seen in court) and Depp, 59, with a jury ruling that the actress was guilty of defaming her ex-spouse, whom she was ordered to pay over $8 million in damages

The claims come two weeks after the end of a six-week defamation trial between Heard and Depp, 59, (seen in court) with a jury ruling that the actress was guilty of defaming her ex-spouse, whom she was ordered to pay over $8 million in damages

Two weeks ago, Heard and Depp had been in a defamation case. (Seen in Court) A jury found that Depp’s actress was guilty in faking her ex-spouse. She was required to pay $8 Million in damages.

An online petition to get Heard dropped from the sequel was also started towards the end of the legal proceedings - gaining 4.6 million signatures in a matter of weeks

A petition online to be Heard was started at the conclusion of legal proceedings. It received 4.6 million signatures within a few weeks.

In the petition it is claimed that Heard was “exposed by Depp as a domestic abuser” during their multimillion-dollar court fight. 

Hamada told the court producers had to “fabricate” chemistry between them, and that studios delayed Heard’s role in the sequel for several weeks due to conversations about her being recast. 

He said that issues were brought up during filming the Aquaman movie because of Momoa and Heard’s chemistry. 

‘Editorially they were capable of making that relationship work for the movie. It was not an easy task, but there were concerns. He explained that Warner Bros would consider a person with better and more natural chemistry to Jason Momoa so that they could move on.

Hamada said that Heard’s $2million payment was unaffected by anything she had heard about her from Depp or Adam Waldman. This after her legal team claimed that Hamada could have negotiated her fee to reduce it from $2 Million for Aquaman and $6,000,000 for Aquaman 2. 

He also denies Heard’s assertions that Mera was reduced in size during filming. He even took away an action scene from Mera. 

Depp answered questions from one his lawyers and said that the “character’s involvement” was the same as it had been from the beginning.

Hamada stated that “from the very beginning stages of script development, the movie was built around Arthur and Orm”, played respectively by Jason Momoa or Patrick Wilson.

Heard and they were “always the coleads for the movie”. Hamada explained that “The movie was pitched as a buddy comedy between Jason Momoa or Patrick Wilson.”

Serious doubts were already cast over Heard's future with the DC franchise during the defamation trial, during which Warner Bros executive Walter Hamada (pictured) testified that producers had already considered recasting the actress

Heard’s future in DC had been cast into doubt by the time of the defamation hearing, when Warner Bros Executive Walter Hamada (pictured) stated that producers had considered casting the actress again.

Hamada testified to the court that producers had to 'fabricate' chemistry between Heard and co-star Jason Momoa, noting that Warner Bros was considering 'someone with better more natural chemistry with Momoa and move forward that way'

Heard says she’s “sunk to new low”: Heard has FURIOUS online backlash over repeated abuse claims against Depp. 

Twitter users vented furious at Amber Heard’s interview on Today. She discussed her husband Johnny Depp’s unfair defamation verdict.

The actress stated in a shocking interview that she would abide by all of her testimony, even though she had been found guilty of defaming her husband by saying that he had abused her during her marriage.

The 36-year old blasted Depp (59), as a “liar” and repeated her claim that Depp beat her in their marriage while she spoke to Savannah Guthrie, Today’s host.

Aquaman’s star Aquaman is now facing serious backlash on social media users.

accusing her of ‘acting’ throughout the appearance and another saying it made them ‘sick to their stomach’ to listen to her ‘bull s**t.’

One person tweeted, “I’ve had enough of her sickening lying,” after the interview.

Another added, “She is so a lie that it’s just painful to see,” while another stated, “And Oscar goes to …’.”

The fourth tweet said, “Contrived performance again.”

Others tweeted that she needed professional help and called her a “sad human being.”

“I am sick of her BS. I was sickened to my stomach after listening to her. Her contradictory statements are a constant. Another Twitter user wrote, “Her fifteen minutes of fame is done.”


Another person slammed the Today show for ‘enabling an abuser,’ while someone else said the network has ‘sunk to a new low,’ and a third bashed them for ‘giving credit to a manipulative piece of s**t like Heard.’

“Nobody believes Savannah.” Stop interviewing abusive people and give up,’ said one Twitter user.

Shame on you. This witch was caught telling lies by women. She has already earned her reputation.

One wrote: “Quit supporting this abuser, and stop giving her airtime.” It was clear she wanted to get on with her life, but she didn’t.

“Nice to See News” [organizations] still giving credit to a manipulative piece of s**t like Amber Heard,’ agreed someone else.

If this trial was reversed, we wouldn’t have any chance of seeing Johnny Depp’s news agency touch it. This is the current news – requires viewers, clicks and cash. 

“As if she didn’t have a chance of proving her case in court?” A different user inquired. “Now NBC has Given” [her]Do you want to miss this chance? I hate [NBC]Get to the heart of it.

‘So sad. Another tweet said that the Today show had fallen to new lows.

“Enough is enough” – These celebrities get more television time than the important stuff. This toxic, slurry affair needs to be covered up! Please!’ I begged for a second person.

“She lies.” Why would she allow herself to keep lying? One viewer tweeted it, and another said that it was a total waste of time.

NBC spotlights domestic abusers Another user wrote, “Shame on NBC!”

Somebody else stated, “Interview and encourage the lies of the abuser. Meanwhile, ignore the victim.”

“Why in the hell are you allowing an abuser to have a platform?” It is truly shameful. You must stop enabling her,” reads a second tweet.

Heard’s news about the movie’s exclusion comes hours after Sheard, 59, was accused of physical abuse in an explosive interview on Today. This came less than two weeks after Heard was found guilty for defaming Depp by alleging that he had sexually assaulted their marital relationship. 

Heard also attacked Depp and claimed that he was a liar. She then spoke out during an interview on Savannah Guthrie’s Today about Depp’s $8 million verdict in their defamation trials.

Heard claimed that her husband had duped the jury in the trial. Heard called him nothing but a ‘fantastic actress’ and ‘convinced all the world that he had scissorhands for fingers’.

Heard, fifty, quickly laughed at Guthrie when she asked her what she thought of Depp’s claims that Depp had been “performing” on the stand. She claimed that Depp had misled her about the abuse that she said she suffered from the actor. 

Heard retorted, “Says the attorney for the man who convinced all the world that he has scissors for his fingers,” I’m the performer. I had been listening to testimony for weeks insinuating or directly stating that I am a horrible actress. “I’m not sure how you could possibly be both.”

An earlier jury decided that Heard defamed the ex-husband she married by publishing an article in The Washington Post about her experience as a survivor of sexual assault. Depp was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages. Heard was also ordered to pay $5 million in punitive damage. However, the judge in Virginia reduced the payment to $350,000. Depp was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages. Depp, at 59 years old, left the courtroom with Heard still owing $8.35million.

However, despite Heard being found guilty by a jury in favor of her husband, Heard refused to retract her accusations of physical violence against her. Instead, she accused him of lying on the witness stand, claiming that he had never hit her.

“He claimed he had never struck you.” Does that sound like a lie? Guthrie asked and Heard replied bluntly, ‘Yes.

Elle added, “To my death day, I will stand behind every word of your testimony.”

Heard claimed that Depp’s lawyers Vasquez and Benjamin Chew tried to divert jurors from the main issues of the case. However, she acknowledged that their work was better than that of her own legal team.

The public allegations that Depp abused her ex-spouse will raise doubts about whether she would be able to bring her to court for defamation. This could also make matters more complicated given Heard’s plan to appeal the decision in their previous defamation case. 

Heard suggested, in addition to the fact that her First Amendment rights to free speech were being challenged by the trial. She claimed that she had spoken her truth to power and paid the price for it.

Guthrie questioned Heard about audio clips played in the trial of Depp’s actress. Heard claimed that Depp was physically abused by Heard and that Heard only ever “responded”. [physical violence]But she did not initiate it.

“I didn’t instigate it. I replied to it,” she said. “When violence becomes normal, you must adapt. This is what I have testified to.

Heard stated that she regretted the horrible’ and â€ugly’ words she said and did to Depp. However, Heard explained that she only acted as someone in extreme emotional, psychological and physical distress who believed their life was at risk.

“I am aware of the extensive use that has been done to these audio tapes,” she stated. After being edited, they were leaked first online. These are the clips you’d hear. [was]It was not proof of what was actually happening. It was evidence that you were negotiating how to discuss it with your abuser.

As she continued, “As it was on the stand. Your life is in danger when your life is put at risk. Not only are you responsible for the things you should not be taking the responsibility for but you also have to accept the consequences of abusive situations – emotionally, psychologically and physically.

“Because you live in it, it is everything but.”

Heard also attacked witnesses that testified for Depp during the trial. Heard called them ‘paid workers and randos’, and charged them with ‘filing ranks’ and supporting their dependents.

Heard maintained that she had never instigated violence within her relationship. However, Heard admitted to being unable to recognise herself in certain ways. Guthrie stated that Heard was forced to act in such a way that she couldn’t distinguish right from wrong.

“I made and said terrible, regrettable decisions throughout my relationship,” she admitted. “I behaved in horrible ways that were almost impossible to recognize.” This is something I regret deeply. I freely spoke out about my actions, hoping to be able to do so voluntarily. I discussed the terrible language. I spoke about how I was pushed so far that I couldn’t tell the difference between right or wrong.

“I feel as if I were a part in this. It was as if I was the other side of this love story, and I was.

It was interesting that Heard described her relationship and marriage with Depp both as ‘ugly and beautiful’. She said: “It was ugly. It could also be quite beautiful. It was extremely toxic. There were many mistakes made. However, I have always stood by the truth.

This interview, which was recorded last week, will be aired on three segments on Today this week. The first segment airs on Monday. Full coverage of the sit-down on NBC’s Dateline Friday at 8 PM.

Guthrie was interviewed for the first time during the sit-down. Heard, Guthrie’s interviewer last week, said that Depp’s legal team were interviewed by Guthrie. Heard further claimed that her husband called on paid employees and randos in order to testify for him.

“I will put it this manner, how could the make a judgement, and how could they come to such a conclusion? [that I couldn’t be believed]?’ “?’ she replied. “They said it in those chairs and they heard three weeks worth of continuous, non-stop testimony from employees. Towards the end, there was randos.

“I can’t fault them. I understand them. He’s loved by many and they feel like they are close to him. He is a great actor.

“Again they could not believe it after hearing three and half weeks worth of evidence about me being an incredible person, and refusing to believe one word I said.”

Depp summoned 38 witnesses during the six-week marathon trial in Fairfax (Virginia), which began on April 11, and ended on June 1. Heard’s team called 24, while Depp called 38.

Both Depp and Heard gave evidence for four days each, including a forensic cross examination from the opposition lawyers – then both returned to the witness stand to testify a second time.

Witnesses were shown a variety of photos and videos as well as medical records. The jury also received pages from the “Love Journal” that they had written to one another.

Because the libel case involved so many questions, the jury was required to answer 42 questions before it delivered the verdict. 24 of these questions were for Depp’s claims; 18 for Heard’s counterclaim.

Depp and Heard recorded clips during their argument. These recordings were some of their most private moments, which were then played back to the public in the most public of settings.

Throughout the trial, social media was flooded with posts about the legal proceedings – with the majority being shared in support of Depp under the hashtag #JusticeForJohnnyDepp. As of June 13, the hashtag had more than 20.6 billion views on TikTok, while the #JusticeForAmberHeard tag had a relatively low 92.4 million views.

Heard claims she was subject to hate and vitriol online during the trial. In the aftermath of the verdict, Heard doubled down on previous claims made by her attorney that the trial had been biased by social media campaigns. The Aquaman actress branded the final verdict unfair.

She said, “Even someone who thinks I’m worthy of all this hatred and vitriol,” but she couldn’t even look me in my eyes that people think there was a fair representation on social media. “You can’t tell me you believe that this was fair.

The claims about Heard's official axing from the sequel come just hours after she landed herself at the center of another scandal by repeating her allegations of abuse against Depp, 59, during an interview with the Today show on Tuesday

These claims regarding Heard’s official removal from the sequel are made just hours after Heard, 59, placed herself in the middle of yet another scandal when she repeated her accusations of abuse against Depp during an interview on Tuesday with Today.

She spoke with tSavannah, a 36-year old, to talk about the ‘unfair verdict’ in their $8 million defamation case. 

Despite insisting social media was a major factor in the outcome, Heard said that her interview with NBC will be broadcast in its entirety on Dateline at 8pm on Friday. Heard had been teased on Tuesday and Wednesday about how she didn’t take any negative comments about her ‘personally,’ insisting that she doesn’t care about what others think about her.

Heard made a bizarre reference to Depp's performance in Tim Burton's 1990 movie Edward Scissorhands (pictured), questioning how his lawyer Camille Vasquez could say she had been 'performing on the stand' while defending a 'man who convinced the world he had scissors for fingers'

Heard was referring to Depp’s appearance in Tim Burton’s 90 movie Edward Scissorhands (pictured). Heard asked Camille Vasquez how she could claim that Camille Vasquez had been “performing on the stands” while protecting a man who claimed he had scissorhands for his fingers.

Guthrie told her that she didn’t care about the opinions of others or any judgments made about my private life in marriage. I do not assume that the average person would know such things.

Heard speaks out for the first time in the interview about the verdict. Heard previously described the decision as a “setback” and published a statement minutes following the hearing.

“The sadness I feel right now is too overwhelming to describe” Heard shared a statement that she made just minutes before the verdict was read in court. Heard was there to witness the judgment, but Depp was absent.

“I am even more disappointed by what this verdict means to other women. It’s a setback. It sends back the time before women could speak up. It reaffirms that women’s violence must be considered seriously.

Elaine Charlson Bredhoft, Heard’s attorney, revealed to the court that her client planned to appeal the decision. She claimed that there were ‘excellent grounds’ for doing so and that Depp is ineligible to receive the damages of $8.35million.

Bredhoft appeared on Today to be asked whether the Aquaman actress could pay Depp’s damages after the jury ruled that he lied and she had accused him of abuse in their marriage. She replied, “No, absolutely not.”

Heard appeared to take aim at 37-year-old Vasquez for defending Depp (seen on June 3)

Heard was seen pointing a gun at Vasquez, a 37-year old man (seen in action earlier this month), to defend Depp (seen leaving on June 3).

When asked whether Depp had 'lied' when he said on the stand that he had 'never hit her', Heard insisted that he had, while hitting out at the actor's lawyer Vasquez (pictured together in court) for accusing her of 'performing' on the stand

Heard, when asked by Heard if Depp had “lied” to her about having ‘never struck her’ during the testimony, insisted that Depp had. He also lashed out at Vasquez’s lawyer (pictured in court together) for accusing him of ‘performing’ while on the stand.  

Her client also voiced her opinion on the verdict to her lawyer, calling it a “significant setback” for women.

It’s an awful message. Bredhoft stated that the verdict was a setback.

“Unless you take out your smartphone and videotape your spouse beating you with it, then you will not be believed.”

Her suggestion that Depp’s case jury was influenced by public opinion, including posts on social media that support him, is also something she suggested. This claim has been dismissed as false and utterly untrue by Depp’s legal team.

Heard must demonstrate errors at trial or in the reading of law to qualify for an appeal.

Also, bond would be required for $10,350,000 and interest over the appeal trial.

Depp sued Heard initially for $50 million, claiming she had defamed him in an opinion piece that was published in the Washington Post in 2018. In it she claimed she was a survivor from domestic abuse.

Heard counter-sued for $100million, claiming Depp’s lawyer Adam Waldman had made defamatory remarks by calling Depp’s claims a hoax.

Today’s actress, Olivia Guthrie, appears on Today’s show less than one week after Guthrie (50) sat down to discuss the matter with Depp’s attorneys Benjamin Chew, and Camille Vasquez. They criticized any suggestion that social media was involved in jury decision-making, calling it ‘utterly false’.

My view is that the jury made the right decision based upon the evidence. Chew stated that it was unanimously in Depp’s favour.
