Amber Heard Is Excited To Return To Aquaman 2 Despite Petition

Amber Heard Is Excited To Return To Aquaman 2 Despite Petition

Amber Heard has said she's excited to start filming Aquaman 2 despite calls for her to be axed from fans of her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.

A petition - titled 'Remove Amber Heard From Aquaman 2' - has been signed by over 1.1 million people so far who believe the 34-year-old 'ruined' Depp's career and therefore shouldn't star in the movie which is due to get underway in 2021.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, she said: "I'm super excited about the amount of fan love and the amount of fan appreciation that Aquaman has acquired and that it has garnered so much excitement for Aquaman and Mera that it means we'll be coming back. I'm so excited to film that."

Heard filed for divorce from Depp, 57, back in 2016 on the grounds of domestic abuse. The pair were caught up in a legal battle before Depp went on to sue The Sun newspaper for calling him a 'wife beater'. He lost his libel case on 2 November.

Touching on reports that she wouldn't be appearing in Aquaman 2, Heard went on to add: "Paid rumors and paid campaigns on social media don't dictate [casting decisions] because they have no basis in reality. Only the fans actually made Aquaman and Aquaman 2 happen. I'm excited to get started next year."

It is believed that, since losing the libel case, Depp will have to pay a substantial amount of money in legal costs to News Group Newspapers.
