Amber Heard is a popular American actress, who has been under immense scrutiny ever since her defamation case against her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, came into the picture. The proceedings of the defamation trial between the formerly married couple were telecasted live on television between April 11 and June 1, 2022.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor eventually won the defamation case against Heard and was awarded $15 million as damage compensation for his reputation.

After the trial, there were many rumors making the rounds on the internet that losing the defamation case had left a huge dent in Heard’s career. And that she might be removed from many of her upcoming projects and Hollywood ventures.

One of the highest-grossing DCEU films, Aquaman (2018) also starred The Danish Girl actress, giving her a lot of appreciation and fame. However, after the trial case, there was news floating around that she might be replaced in the next installment of the same movie, Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom, because of the negative attention she has gotten because of the case. That can probably make Heard lose a big fat payment of $2 million.

The news of The Danish Girl actress’s role being cut down to only ten minutes in the new Aquaman sequel has been circulating on the internet like wildfire since last year.

The mother-of-one even knocked at the doors of the court, claiming that her role in Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom was reduced to a mere few minutes. She even testified in court, saying,

“I fought really hard to stay in the movie. They didn’t want to include me in the film.”

However, the former DC film head, Walter Hamada, dismissed her claims, saying that her small role in the movie Aquaman has nothing to do with her defamation when called to testify in court.

He further claimed that the reason behind Heard’s minimized role was only because the creative team of the film was fearful of the lack of spark and chemistry between the actor and Momoa.

Hamada also said verbatim:

“The size of the role in the film that she has was determined in the early development of the script.”
