Amber Heard’s Role in Aquaman 2 Allegedly Increased, Causing Viral Boycott Campaign

The trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard may have finished, but the aftermath is far from done. Amber Heard portrays Mera, a fierce aquatic heroine and love interest of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, in DC’s billion-dollar Aquaman franchise, hence this superhero movie was a much talked about topic of the highly-publicized judicial case.

Mera is going to have a son with the King of Atlantis in Aquaman 2, according to reports. Reports vary as to how Warner Bros. intends to handle the problem; some believe she has been cut entirely from the film, while others claim she will only appear for 10 minutes. Now, according to rumors from the most recent test screening, her part may have even expanded, causing outrage among fans.

With DC and Warner Bros. poised to release the highly anticipated sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom next year, a growing chorus of fans is calling for Amber Heard to leave the role of Aquaman and the part to be replaced. Not only is that not going to happen (Aquaman 2 wrapped filming a long ago), but there’s a rumor that Amber Heard’s Mera will have even more screen time in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

The claims have sparked a viral boycott of the DC sequel, with the hashtag “#boycottaquaman2” trending on Twitter, indicating the protest’s viral nature.

With many pledging to boycott the sequel because of Heard’s involvement, it will be fascinating to watch how the campaign affects box office revenue, or even if the protest will last the nine-month wait for the picture to be released. In any case, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if Heard plays a minor role in the promotion and isn’t available for interviews.
