Emilia Clarke to Replace Amber Heard As Mera In Aquaman 2?

After Johnny Depp was fired from the Fantastic Beasts franchise back in November, fans across the world raised their voice for Warner Bros’ seemingly unfair decision. However, it now seems, according to a new rumor, that the studio has finally cleared its stance on allegations of domestic abuse by replacing Amber Heard with Game of Thrones alumnus Emilia Clarke for the role of Mera in the upcoming Aquaman 2.

Back in 2016, the tumultuous love-affair of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard took an ugly turn as Heard filed a divorce case citing verbal and physical abuse. As the high-profile case attracted considerable attention, both parties went blazing out with evidence and witnesses. With the internet left polarized in the wake of this ugly affair, the case reached new heights when Depp lost the libel case against The Sun, and was ultimately fired from the Fantastic Beasts franchise in which he played the role of Grindelwald. Similarly, reports of Disney blocking any attempts of Depp being a part of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise also emerged, which once again dismayed the fans.

But according to Forbes, it now seems that Warner Bros. has also fired Amber Heard from the DC Extended Universe to replace her with the Mother of Dragons.

While no official confirmation has been released from Warner Bros. regarding Clarke’s casting, the decision can work wonders as it will once again reunite Clarke with Jason Momoa. In Game of Thrones, the pair shared the screen as a couple which led to the earlier speculations of Clarke replacing Heard as Mera in the DCEU.
