'Aquaman 2' Producer Responds to Fan Pressure to Axe Amber Heard from Film

One of the producers of the upcoming movie Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is responding to the pressure from Johnny Depp fans to remove his ex-wife Amber Heard from the project.

The 35-year-old actress played the role of Mera in the 2018 superhero movie and she will be reprising the role in the upcoming sequel.

Amid the legal battles between Johnny and Amber, his fans called for her to be removed from the Warner Bros. film. For those who don’t know, Johnny stepped down from the Warner Bros. movie Fantastic Beasts 3 amid the controversy.

Now, Aquaman 2 producer Peter Safran is speaking out in response to the protests.

“I don’t think we’re ever going to react to, honestly, pure fan pressure,” Safran told Deadline. “You gotta do what’s best for the movie. We felt that if it’s James Wan, and Jason Momoa, it should be Amber Heard. That’s really what it was.”

He added, “One is not unaware of what is going on in the Twitter-verse, but that doesn’t mean you have to react to it or take it as gospel or accede to their wishes. You have to do what’s right for the film, and that’s really where we landed on it.”

Amber recently shared a new photo with her newborn daughter.
