Rumours of Amber Heard being fired from Aquaman 2 are now being debunked, with entertainment reporter Ryan Parker claiming such comments are 'inaccurate'.

Over the weekend, internet gossip began to circulate, suggesting Heard had been fired from her role as Mera in the forthcoming sequel.

However, such hearsay is reportedly 'inaccurate', with Parker - a senior staff writer for The Hollywood Reporter - tweeting yesterday to say he'd spoken to a 'reliable source' about the film.

He wrote: "Told by a reliable source that reports of Amber Heard being fired off 'Aquaman 2' are inaccurate."

No further details were given.

LADbible had reached out to Warner Bros for comment.

Heard's involvement in the film has previously come under scrutiny amid her ongoing legal battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Many film fans called for her to be fired from the Aquaman sequel as a result, with a petition for her removal garnering more than 1.8 million signatures.

In the description, the petition makes a series of unfounded allegations against Heard, who filed for divorce from Depp back in 2016.

Since their divorce, multiple stories and accusations of abuse have surfaced, with both sides making a number of allegations against the other.

Following the online campaign to have her removed from the film, Heard said she was 'excited' to return to the franchise.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly in November last year, 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."

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."

The film is due to be released in December 2022.
