Amber Heard will allegedly have less than ten minutes of screentime in the Aquaman sequel.
As Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against his ex-wife continues, film journalist Grace Randolph revealed that the actress will only get less than 10 minutes of screen time in Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom which is set to air in 2023.
It is not clear if Heard’s screen time was reduced as a result of her ongoing legal battle with Johnny Depp or if the extent of her role in the movie was intended to be kept at a minimum from the onset.
The news comes after nearly three million people signed a petition calling for the producers of the movie to drop Heard from the sequel completely.
“Amber Heard has been exposed as a domestic abuser by Johnny Depp,” the viral petition claims.
“In his lawsuit, Johnny Depp describes many incidents of domestic abuse that he suffered at the hands of his (then) wife Amber Heard, including one incident where she punched him twice in the face and another where she shattered his finger with a vodka bottle, and his finger had to be surgically reattached. He will bear the scar from that for the rest of his life.
“Also, Amber Heard was arrested in 2009 for abusing a former domestic partner, Tasya Van Ree, demonstrating a repeated pattern of abuse by Amber Heard.
“Since Heard’s divorce from Johnny Depp, she 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 petition adds: “Men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women. This must be recognized, and action must be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry.
“Do the right thing. Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2.”
The petition has been making rounds on the internet as Depp’s blockbuster defamation trial against his ex-wife continues. Amber Heard is set to take a stand in the court this week.
