Several reports of Amber Heard being fired from Aquaman 2 have emerged online, leading the actress to trend on social media. The reports have been debunked by The Hollywood Reporter staff writer Ryan Parker, who took to social media to state he’s been told by a “reliable source” that the reports of Heard’s alleged firing are “inaccurate.”
Following the emergence of the reports on Sunday, Parker tweeted, “Told by a reliable source that reports of Amber Heard being fired off ‘Aquaman 2’ are inaccurate.”

This is not the first time rumours of the actress being fired have spread, seemingly stemming from her public legal battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp. Both Depp and Heard have contested the other was physically and verbally abusive during their relationship.
Depp has already been fired from Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts franchise, which also caused some to wonder why Heard wasn’t receiving the same fate, reported screenrant.com.
Heard plays Xebellian princess Mera in the DCEU, ever since her first appearance in 2017’s Justice League. She went on to have a prominent role in 2018’s Aquaman and will reprise the part next month for Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
