Aquaman 2 has been drowning in speculations and obstacles one after the other. The movie first sought out Ben Affleck’s Batman to be a major part of the film rather than a mere cameo. It was then also said that Amber Heard’s scenes were either being minimized or removed altogether due to the controversies surrounding her.

These problems do not seem to end just yet as the movie yet again is to face another set of issues in the form of fans and their opinions. A test screening of the movie that happened recently revealed a few more aspects of the movie that may or may not be subject to change.

Aquaman 2 Might Not Have Removed Or Reduced Amber Heard’s Role

Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was said to have increased Ben Affleck‘s role from more than just a cameo, having called him back for further reshoots. This, however, was recently debunked as in the latest test screening of the movie, Affleck was nowhere to be seen and neither was Willem Dafoe’s Vulko anywhere in the underwater nation of Atlantis. The screening was said to be of an older version of the film, but no changes would be as major as the involvement of an individual role.

Another speculation that had been around was about Amber Heard and her involvement in the movie. This included both the fact that her scenes might be limited and barely existent, as well as the removal of her character altogether. Heard plays Arthur Curry’s love interest Mera, who would in the future also become his wife. Although, in the screening, her role was just as intact. In fact, it was nowhere near removed and Mera felt to be just as involved in the movie as any other major character.

Amber Heard as Mera

Upon hearing this news, fans have been highly upset. The audience had been under the impression of seeing more from Ben Affleck and less from Amber Heard. However, now it would seem that they would encounter just the opposite.

Not only that, but those against Heard have been trolling the movie ever since. Although the test screenings do not mean to be the final product of the movie itself, it does not deem them anywhere far from the final product either. Some fans even speculate that the reason for such screening could be due to incomplete VFX and CGI.
