Actress Amber Heard, one of today’s most talked about actresses, has been in the headlines for nearly six weeks over her high-profile libel case against actor ex-husband Johnny Depp. Rumors swirled that Amber had been cut from Warner Bros.’ upcoming film, ‘Aquaman 2’, just days after the jury returned its verdict in Depp’s favor on most counts.
Amber, on the other hand, refuted the rumor, calling it “crazy.” According to a report from TMZ, the actress’ team dismissed the allegations and said, “A false rumor has arisen from the post-trial vitriol for Amber.”
There were numerous rumors on social media claiming that the actress was cut from the sequel. Not only that, but it has also been reported that the role of Heard will be recast with an unknown actress and new filming will begin soon.

TMZ also reached out to Warner Bros. for a comment on this report, but they have not yet responded.
“Aquaman 2”, also known as “Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom”, is set for release on March 17, 2023. The film is directed by James Wan and stars Jason Mamoa, Nicole Kidman, William Defoe and Amber Heard.
Amber, after losing the libel case against Depp, keeps a low profile in public. However, she was recently interviewed by Variety in which she was heard saying, “You can’t tell me that was right.”
The trial, held in Virginia, USA, lasted six weeks and remained trending on the internet. Depp, who won the case, was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages, while Amber Heard was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages.

Depp sued Heard for $50 million in damages when the article was published. The trial began in April and the judgment was announced on June 1, in which Depp emerged victorious. The jury determined that Amber Heard lacked substantial evidence to support her allegations against Depp and therefore found her abuse allegations to be false when she published the article. The jury, however, found that Depp defamed Heard on one occasion, awarding him $2 million in compensatory damages.
