If there’s one thing people are associating ‘Aquaman 2’ with right now, it definitely isn’t how Jason Momoa looks or how it’s going to be directed by Malaysian-born James Wan.
Instead, fans in Johnny Depp’s camp wants Amber Heard to be axed from the movie.
Depp’s fans launched a petition, which has since reached over 1.5 million signatures, to have his former wife removed following the controversial court case.
So, did the petition actually work in the end?

Recently, local movie theatre operator TGV shared a piece of interesting news, quoting Forbes magazine “It now seems that Warner Bros. has also fired Amber Heard from the DC Extended Universe, #Aquaman2 to replace her with the Mother of Dragons”.
A quick internet search reveals that the original article dated 31 December 2020 is legit and has recently resurfaced.
However, according to Reddit users, the article contains highly unverified news.
We know a lot of fans want to see a ‘Game of Thrones’ reunion on the silver screen between Momoa and Clarke, but it looks like this rumour will remain as a rumour until the studio finally confirms the sequel's line-up.
The internet may have a lot to say about Heard, but she’s reportedly raking in more money for ‘Aquaman 2’ after getting ‘upset’ at Warner Bros.
According to We Got This Covered, the actress was angered after the studio decided to bring in another female lead to “balance things out” and reducing her screentime.
In return for her minimal screentime, she will be receiving a pay rise.
Sounds odd that the studio would agree to pay someone more for cutting out their workload, right?
When will the drama with ‘Aquaman 2’ end? Only time will tell.
