The rumors suggesting Amber Heard has been fired from Aquaman 2 have been debunked. Heard plays Xebellian princess Mera in the DCEU, ever since her first appearance in 2017’s Justice League. She went on to have a prominent role in 2018’s Aquaman and will reprise the part next month for Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Additionally, Heard is expected to return for Aquaman 2, which will once again star Jason Momoa as the titular hero and is slated for release in December 2022. Plot details are still being kept under wraps, and filming is expected to begin this summer.

On Sunday, unverified reports of Heard being fired from Aquaman 2 emerged online and led the actress to trend on social media. This is hardly the first time rumors of Heard’s firing have spread, seemingly stemming from her brutal and public battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp. Both Depp and Heard have contested the other was physically and verbally abusive during their relationship. In the fall, Depp was fired from Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts franchise, which led to fan outcry online. Depp’s departure also caused some to wonder why Heard wasn’t receiving the same fate.
