Has Amber Heard been replaced in Aquaman 2?

30 Sec Answer: No, Amber Heard has not been replaced in Aquaman 2. Despite reports of controversy surrounding the actress, she is still set to reprise her role as Mera in the sequel to the 2018 blockbuster film.


Aquaman was one of the most successful films released in 2018 and fans are eagerly awaiting the release of its sequel. One of the major questions that have been circulating amongst movie buffs is whether or not Amber Heard will be returning for Aquaman 2? This article aims to answer this question once and for all.

Who is Amber Heard?

Amber Heard is an American actress who made her acting debut in 2004 with a minor role in Friday Night Lights. She rose to fame with roles such as Liz In David Gordon Green’s All The Real Girls (2003), Sarah Hart in Pineapple Express (2008) and Lila Storm in Never Back Down (2008). In 2018, she took on the role of Mera in James Wan’s Aquaman which became one of the highest grossing films of that year.

Controversy Surrounding Amber Heard

Recently, there has been much speculation about whether or not Amber Heard would return for Aquaman 2 due to ongoing controversy surrounding her personal life. In 2016, she was accused by her ex-husband Johnny Depp of physical abuse during their marriage. This led to allegations being leveled against her on social media, some calling for Warner Bros. to recast her from Aquaman 2 altogether.

Has Amber Heard Been Replaced?

Despite these allegations and calls for her to be replaced, it seems that Amber Heard will remain in Aquaman 2 despite any negative publicity associated with her name. As recently confirmed by DC Films co-chairman Walter Hamada, production on the sequel is already underway with no signs that they plan on recasting her part anytime soon.

Why Is Amber Still Part Of The Cast?

Given the evidence that has surfaced since 2016, many people have asked why DC Films decided not to replace Amber Heard after such serious allegations were leveled against her. It appears that Warner Bros. may simply believe that she is innocent until proven guilty and thus gave her the benefit of doubt when deciding whether or not to keep her on board for Aquaman 2.

Did Her Role Change At All?

In spite of all the controversy surrounding Amber Heard’s involvement with Aquaman 2, it does not appear that her role has changed at all from what it originally was in the first film. She will still play Mera – the Atlantean queen and wife of Jason Momoa’s character Arthur Curry/Aquaman – though perhaps not quite as prominent as before given the focus on other characters like Black Manta and Ocean Master played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Patrick Wilson respectively.

Will There Be More Focus On Supporting Characters?

With all this focus on supporting characters like Black Manta and Ocean Master, some fans are wondering if this means we can expect less screen time devoted to Amber’s character Mera? While it is too early to tell exactly how much screen time each character will get, it appears that writer/director James Wan plans on focusing more heavily on developing the relationships between these new characters rather than just relying on Mera as a sidekick for Arthur Curry/Aquaman alone.

Could There Be A New Love Interest For Arthur Curry/Aquaman?

Given that Aquaman is going to explore more diverse relationships among its various characters, many fans have speculated whether or not there could be a potential love interest for Arthur Curry/Aquaman apart from his wife Mera? While nothing has been officially confirmed yet by either Warner Bros or director James Wan himself, rumors suggest that we could see him develop feelings for a different woman throughout the course of the sequel which could lead to some interesting plot points down the line.


So there you have it! Despite recent controversies involving Amber Heard, she will indeed remain part of the cast for Aquaman 2 when it comes out later this year or next year. We’ll just have to wait and see how big a part she plays in relation to other supporting characters like Black Manta and Ocean Master but one thing is certain; things are certainly looking exciting for DC Films’ upcoming underwater epic!
