Since the lawsuit between her ex-husband Johnny Depp and herself came to an end, Heard took a long break from Hollywood and was busy settling in Mallorca, Spain, with her daughter. She came back to the spotlight last year for the premiere of her indie movie In The Fire, and recently, for the premiere of the last DCEU movie and her last foray with this CBM giant, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

Amber Heard Thanks Fans for Overwhelming Love and Support

Amber Heard took to Instagram to thank her fans for showing Aquaman 2 “overwhelming support” and “love,” even though she had previously accused Warner Bros and the movie execs of cutting her role down to the bare minimum in Aquaman 2.

Heard said (via Variety) that the production house “pared down” her rome and had “taken away” the action scenes that Mera was part of. Unlike the first movie, the sequel barely gave any screentime to the character of Mera, who is now married to Arthur, and is pushed to be a mere background character.

But contrary to Heard, the director of the movie, James Wan, said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly before the release of Aquaman 2, that the movie was never supposed to focus on Arthur and Mera, but on Arthur and his relationship with his half-brother, Orm, played by Patrick Wilson.

“I always pitched this to everyone from the get-go. The first ‘Aquaman’ was Arthur and Mera’s journey. The second movie was always going to be Arthur and Orm. So, the first was a romance action-adventure movie, the second one is a bromance action-adventure movie. We’ll leave it at that.”
