The fallout of their relationship has been very public with an active court case still being battled right now.

When Amber’s initial allegations of abuse came out, fans were quick to rally to her side and had the resulting outcry led to Johnny Depp being fired from upcoming roles such as future Pirates of the Caribbean sequels and the Fantastic Beasts series.

It was when incriminating audio was released where she admitted to physically assaulting Johnny Depp it soon became clear that the situation was far more complicated than that.

Fans are now coming to the conclusion that Amber Heard herself may have been the abuser in this situation.

Johnny Depp has since litigated against the Daily Mail who called him a ‘wife beater’. While Johnny lost the case against the Daily Mail, the evidence that came to light, as a result, vindicated him in the court of public opinion, with Disney apologizing to him as a result.

Back to the matter at hand, a rumour is now coming to light that Amber Heard may now receive the same treatment that Johnny first encountered and may have been sacked from the Aquaman franchise.

Not only that, but it is also being claimed that she may have been replaced by Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones fame.

This rumour has come to light after a petition was signed by 1.8 million people calling for her removal. The petition however does make claims that have not yet been proven making it difficult to decide one way or the other.

After all this hullaballoo, a writer for the ‘Hollywood Reporter’ tweeted that the rumors were ‘inaccurate’.

While he did not give further details, the source of the tweet gives it enough credibility.

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

 

Aquaman is expected to release in December 2022.
