Due to the ongoing lawsuit with Johnny Depp, fans are speculating whether Aquaman 2 have recast Amber Heard or not. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was filmed in London from July 2021 to December 2021. The speculation about Amber Heard’s replacement from the movie steamed up after her legal battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp began to gain attention.

Although that lawsuit is still ongoing, Amber has already clarified that would not impact her ability to participate in Aquaman 2.

As soon as the lawsuit started, rumours started circulating in February 2021 that Amber was going to be replaced by former Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke. Emilia has formerly worked with  Aquaman star Jason Momoa on Game of Thrones, so fans are aware that the two have chemistry.

Though these rumours were ungrounded, Aquaman 2 producer Peter Safran clarified in July 2021 while on Deadline‘s Hero Nation podcast, “I don’t think we’re ever going to react to, honestly, pure fan pressure. You gotta do what’s best for the movie. We felt that if it’s [director] James Wan and [star] Jason Momoa, it should be Amber Heard. That’s really what it was.”

He told that the crew are aware of the fans’ petitions for replacing Amber from the Aquaman sequel and said, “One is not unaware of what is going on in the Twitter-verse, but that doesn’t mean you have to react to it or take it as gospel or accede to their wishes. You have to do what’s right for the film, and that’s really where we landed on it.”

Even after the clarification by the Aquaman 2 producer, rumours continued and new rumours began circulating in April 2022 that stated that Amber had “less than 10 minutes of screen time” in Aquaman 2. There are also ungrounded rumours of Amber nearly didn’t return for Aquaman 2.

Fans are totally in favour of replacing Amber from the American movie Aquaman and are sharing their views on social media platforms. While Amber Heard has already finished filming for Aquaman 2, and as of January 2022, post-production is reportedly finished.
