The 36-year-old actress, Amber Heard has been criticized for her role in the DC’s Aquaman ever since fans got to know her history with her former husband, Johnny Depp. Initially, she was reprising her role of Mera, Arthur Curry’s love interest in the film, with reports stating that her scenes were either being minimized or removed altogether due to the controversies surrounding her. Not just that, a petition was signed to remove her from the sequel that has already reached over 4.5 million people.

Her role in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom might not be altered as was debunked by the latest test screening of the movie. As per reports, the test screening happened to be of an older version of the film. In the test screening, her role was as fine as other characters with no changes spotted regarding minimizing or removing her role.

As soon as the news broke on the Internet, fans were upset with the latest revelation. To think that DC Studios would ignore more than 4.5 million people and keep Heard’s role in the upcoming film even after strings of controversies disappointed them a lot.

Fans took to Twitter and shared their opinions on the same.

Check out the tweets below.

Back in July, reports stated that the mother of one will be removed from the role with a source shared, “Warner Bros. decided to recast Amber Heard’s role after screen testing the movie. They are going to be doing reshoots with Jason Momoa and Nicole Kidman.”

Even though the test screenings are not the final product, it does not alters completely. It is still shocking for fans as Johnny Depp was asked to leave the Fantastic Beasts franchise after losing a libel case against The Sun in 2018 over a headline that called him a “wife beater” solely based on his ex-wife’s allegations.

Depp filed a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife demanding $50 million for affecting his reputation after she wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post in 2018 claiming herself to be a “domestic abuse” victim. The actress counterclaimed him for $100 million. The court awarded him $10.35m in damages while Heard was awarded $2m for her counter-claims.
