Aquaman 2 Rumored To Be Pushed Multiple Times As Emilia Clarke Reportedly Secretly Shooting Queen Mera Scenes To Replace Amber Heard

Their individual careers have suffered ever since Amber Heard became embroiled in court disputes with her ex-husband Johnny Depp. Amber Heard is still a member of the Warner Bros. Aquaman franchise even though Johnny Depp was fired from Disney’s Fantastic Beasts franchise. It was already confirmed that Amber Heard had shot her scenes for Aquaman 2, however, due to the movie getting pushed back, fans have theorized that the reasoning behind such creating a delay for the film could be due to the studio recasting the actress and reshooting the scenes that were meant to have Amber Heard as Mera in them. The most rumored actress who could potentially be the replacement is Emilia Clarke.

Things have changed for Amber Heard since Johnny Depp won the defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife. Her role was reportedly diminished in the second installment after a petition to have her fired from the renowned franchise circulated on social media. There are currently more than 2 million signatures on the petition. The timing of Amber Heard’s screen time in the Aquaman 2 movie is the subject of a recent internet rumor. According to reports, Amber Heard will appear on screen for no more than 10 minutes in the upcoming DC sequel.

According to a recent discovery by YouTuber Syl Abdul Inc, Mera is reportedly in scenes that are being reshot for Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom, but there is a catch. It’s unknown who will play her, and it may not be Amber Heard. The person that initially informed Abdul that Ben Affleck was on site and will be in Aquaman 2 as Batman also added that there was someone else there dressed as Mera, though they were unable to identify them.

It has been addressed that one of the main concerns in the making of Aquaman 2 would be the chemistry that Jason Momoa and Amber Heard would have to portray, considering that they are polar opposites when it comes to liking each other in real life, the fabrication of the chemistry may prove to be quite a challenge. Unless the studio has decided to recast the actress with someone who not only has chemistry with the actor but has also been a highly requested replacement ever since the defamation trial had started. Who else could this actress be if not Emilia Clarke?
