Amber Heard was almost fired from Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, with at least two of the actress’ scenes in the DCEU movie getting cut. Heard returns as Mera for the DCEU’s last movie, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, though the actress only has a reduced role in the film. Now, a new report reveals that even that reduced role could have been excluded from Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
Variety shared a comprehensive report on Heard’s situation regarding Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The report details what notes from the highly publicized Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation trial revealed of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The report goes on to reveal that the actress was initially told she shouldn’t return for the movie after 2018’s Aquaman debuted due to her and Momoa’s lack of chemistry. The studio never went through with the firing allegedly due to Heard’s former boyfriend, Elon Musk, having sent a threatening letter to Warner Bros. to get Heard reinstated. The report also claims that at least two of Heard’s scenes as Mera were cut from Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom — an action sequence with Mera going up against Black Manta and a love scene with Momoa’s Aquaman.
