The trial for the defamation case brought by Johnny Depp against his ex-wife continued on the 16th of May. Amber Heard currently is on the stand giving testimony. Fans and media have their eyes glued on the trial and the former are particularly invested in the outcome of the suit. In this tough contest, many revelations have been made by the stars about their lives and careers.
The latest detail to be revealed is what Heard made from her role in DC’s Aquaman and the follow-up sequel, Aquaman 2. Earlier, fans had circulated a petition calling for the removal of Heard from Aquaman 2 that got a lot of signatures. The petition seems to have failed, though.
Amber Heard Reveals Her Fee For Aquaman and Aquaman 2
When questioned about her contract to feature in the superhero franchise, Heard explained “It’s structured like a three-picture option. I signed on to do Justice League, where my character was introduced. The fee is small relative to what it will become if and when you do the other options or movies under that umbrella. So it was the contract for Justice League, which could then become Justice League 2, or it could be Aquaman or it could be some other movie within the DC Universe. And the second picture ended up being Aquaman, and the third being Aquaman 2. And each time the fee goes up.”
She went on to reveal that she got $1 million for Aquaman apart from “box office bonus opportunities”. Heard further revealed that she made $2 million for the sequel, Aquaman 2.
