More Than One Million People Sign Petition For Amber Heard To Be Removed From Aquaman 2

More than one million people are calling for Amber Heard to be ditched from Aquaman 2.

The film isn't expected to be released until 2022, however the recent legal battles linked to her messy divorce from Johnny Depp has fans upset and they want her gone from the upcoming DC film.

A Change.org petition titled 'Remove Amber Heard From Aquaman 2' has been signed by nearly 1.1 million people.

Its description makes various allegations against Heard, who filed for Divorce from Depp in 2016 on the grounds of domestic abuse.

It argues that, since their divorce, Heard has 'systematically crusaded to ruin Depp in Hollywood, repeating multiple accounts of fake incidents in which she had actually abused Johnny Depp, but lied and created false accounts of him being the abuser'.

The description adds that 'men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women'.

It comes after Depp was dropped by Warner Bros when he lost his libel case against The Sun newspaper and executive editor Dan Wootton.

The case centred on whether an article published in The Sun, in which Depp was called a 'wife beater', was libellous.

The newspaper claimed to have seen 'overwhelming evidence' that Depp had attacked the 34-year-old Heard, while Depp strenuously denies those allegations.

Both Depp and Heard gave evidence in the 16-day-long trial, which aired the tempestuous nature of their relationship, and stories of both brutal violence and intimate detail.

Thousands of people have since signed another petition demanding that Depp should be brought back for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts movie.

The change.org petition says: "Johnny Depp was asked by Warner Bros to resign and leave his role of Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts 3 movie. This happened because of the verdict of his case with 'The Sun' tabloid that was completely unfair. We want him back! Warner Bros should listen to the public or we will boycott the movie!!!"

However, despite Depp's removal from the role, it was revealed recently that he will still receive an eight-figure salary, having already filmed one scene for the film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Pirates of The Caribbean star will still be entitled to what is said to be an eight-figure deal with the studio, meaning he'll walk away with at least $10 million (£7.6m).

Filming started for the movie on 20 September in London Depp had what is known as a 'pay-or-play contact' which requires him to be fully compensated whether or not the film is made - even if he is recast.
