Aquaman star Amber Heard has been all over the news in recent weeks. After filing for divorce from veteran actor Johnny Depp citing abusive behavior as the primary reason, the high-profile celebrity breakup attracted frenzied media attention as both the parties produced incriminating pieces of evidence against each other. The tumultuous case reached new lows as actor Johnny Depp was called as ‘wifebeater’ by The Sun which resulted in Depp filing for a libel case and losing it.
Despite having overwhelming support from his fans and former partners, Johnny Depp has been the loser so far. After losing the case against The Sun, Depp was requested by Warner Bros. to step down from the Fantastic Beasts franchise in which he played the role of Grindelwald. On the contrary, Amber Heard’s career has been booming as she is confirmed to return for both Zack Snyder’s Justice League and Aquaman 2 as Queen Mera.
If playing the role of Queen Mera was not lucrative enough, a recent rumor from Daniel Richtman will surely blow away your mind. According to Richtman, Amber Heard is reportedly in talks with Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige for a major role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
If previous rumors are to be believed, Amber Heard was originally being eyed for the role of Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel. As no official communication has been relayed from Marvel Studios regarding Amber Heard’s involvement in a major role, we urge you to take this rumor with a massive grain of salt.
Earlier, Johnny Depp’s massive physical evidence against Amber Heard had pretty much turned the tide against her. Depp’s firing from the Fantastic Beasts franchise has further enraged the fans as the general opinion that Depp is innocent has become widely popular, owing to the evidence produced by the actor.
While Amber Heard would definitely be a decent addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, if her acting skills from Aquaman is to be believed. However, hiring the Aquaman star comes with its own set of troubles which the MCU surely does not need right now. With over a hundred million signatures to remove Heard from Aquaman 2 being registered on change.org, this massive controversy is definitely not worth engaging with for the MCU, no matter if Amber Heard comes clean out of this mess. After Marvel’s fiasco with James Gunn’s firing over old tweets, this controversy can severely affect the studio and the multi-billion dollar franchise. Unless Marvel confirms it from their official communication channels, take this rumor with a humongous piece of salt.
Aquaman 2 is set to release on 16th December, 2022.
