After all, it appears that Amber Heard will appear in “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” in 2023. The eagerly awaited sequel is a continuation of the 2018 film “Aquaman,” in which Jason Momoa assumed the role of the underwater hero. Heard played Princess Mera, Aquaman’s love interest, in the first movie. However, others lobbied for Heard to be dropped from the movie amid her 2022 trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp; many even signed a petition to have her dropped by DC.
Heard does, however, make two appearances in “Aquaman 2” video that was screened at CinemaCon on April 25, according to Insider, proving that she is in the movie. The inquiry from POPSUGAR was not immediately answered by Heard or DC Studios representatives.
Production for “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” started in June 2021 and finished in January 2022, with Heard on board to reprise her role as Mera. During the beginning stages of production, some Depp supporters called for Heard to be removed, and the film’s producer, Peter Safran, told Deadline in July 2021, “One is not unaware of what is going on in the Twitter-verse, but that doesn’t mean you have to react to it or take it as gospel or accede to their wishes. You have to do what’s right for the film, and that’s really where we landed on it.”
The CinemaCon trailer confirmed that Heard is in the film. The trailer has yet to be released to the public.
