Amber Heard Claps Back at 'Aquaman 2' Petitions To Have Her Fired From The Movie

Amber Heard isn’t leaving Aquaman 2.

The 34-year-old actress has broken her silence following a petition that has now reached a ton of signatures called for her firing from the upcoming movie.

The petition came just after her ex, Johnny Depp, was forced to exit his own movie series, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, after the verdict came on his libel case against The Sun, which labeled him a “wife beater”.

While Johnny has amicably left his movie, Amber has no intention of leaving Aquaman behind, nor has Warner Bros. asked her to do so.

“I’m super excited about the amount of fan love and the amount of fan appreciation that Aquaman has acquired and that it has garnered so much excitement for Aquaman and Mera that it means we’ll be coming back,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “I’m so excited to film that.”

She went on, opening up about all the speculation about her role in the movie.

“Paid rumors and paid campaigns on social media don’t dictate [casting decisions] because they have no basis in reality,” Amber added. “Only the fans actually made Aquaman and Aquaman 2 happen. I’m excited to get started next year.”

Still, a second Aquaman movie hasn’t been greenlit just yet.

Amber starred as Mera in the film, who is Aquaman’s Atlantian queen.

If you didn’t see, Amber and her team have recently responded to Johnny‘s intentions to seek an appeal on the libel case verdict.
