Amber Heard, who plays the female lead characterMera, claims to have been paid $2 million for the Aquaman sequel. Heard recently claimed that she was fired from her Aquaman 2 role due to the lack of publicity surrounding her relationship with ex-husband Johnny Depp.
Heard spoke up against the media''s concern about her, claiming that she had failed to reprise Mera''s role in the 2017 film Justice League and reprised in the 2018 blockbuster Aquaman. She confirmed her release when asked if she had been involved inAquaman 2.
I fought to stay in it, and they kept me locked. I just don''t know how much Im in the final cut, since I cannot know if I will even be in the final cut or how much I will be. It''s a difficult to stay in the film.
Nothing has been officially stated about a new female lead in the film, but speculations have swirled that Amber Heard has been replaced by another female actress and role. It will be a while before the film is released, so the official details will most likely be revealed after the trial and closer to the release date.
