The lawsuit between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has recently come to an end. The jury’s verdict quickly circulated the entire Internet – the 58-year-old actor emerged victorious from the loud clash. However, as we could have expected some time ago, the repercussions of the whole event will be felt for many years to come. Amber Heard herself may be the first to suffer.
The process of the decade is behind us – time for the first consequences
The Amber Heard defamation of Johnny Depp has shifted the entire internet focus to the courtroom. For weeks, we watched the dispute between the two sides, and snippets of the most important events were massively circulated on TikTok, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter . It’s hard to deny that even people who were not interested in the whole situation from all sides were bombarded with more information about whether it was Depp or Heard.
Therefore, calling the procedure “the process of the decade” should come as no surprise to any of us. In the end, the verdict came down to over $ 10 million in damages by the 36-year-old actress. The aggrieved party, Johnny Depp, will have to pay “only” two million dollars. Nevertheless , the money matters are by far the least important throughout the show.
The image and future of both sides are in the lead here. After the trial was over, both Depp and Heard wrote special statements that, as you can easily guess, differ significantly from each other. In the case of the man, we could read about the hardships of the trial, revealing private life and the victory of the truth. The actor’s ex-wife, in her reaction to the verdict, spoke of injustice, the loss of rights and freedom of speech. Ultimately, however, everything seems to indicate that Amber Heard’s worst career days are yet to come.
In the case of Johnny Depp, it may be just the opposite. An experienced actor received offers to play in various interesting productions during the process. One of them is Beetlejuice 2 , but the greatest emotions aroused the possibility of the 58-year-old returning to the role of Jack Sparrow in the series Pirates of the Caribbean . But let’s go back to Amber …
The makers of Aquaman have the option to cut Amber Heard from the new movie
We informed you that the role of Amber Heard in the movie Aquaman 2 was significantly reduced in early May. Recently, however, a new light has shone on the whole thing. An American journalist, KC Walsh , who writes for The GWW on a daily basis , revealed that sources close to him are convinced that Amber Heard will be completely removed from her latest production. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is the sequel to the 2018 film, in which Jason Momoa plays the title character.
The premiere of the second part of the series is scheduled for March 17, 2023. Amber Heard played Mera – a superhero whose one of the main powers is to control water. As it turns out, it is very possible that the red-haired character will cause the most problems for editors, not for the enemies of Atlantis.
According to reports from overseas, a landmark meeting took place recently at the Warner Bros. headquarters. It was agreed there that all the scenes in which Mera appears should be cut out , and the story should be stuck together in such a way that the viewers leave the screening satisfied. It is very possible that the character played by Amber Heard will be put to death. However, we will find out this during the March premiere.
Interestingly, the “process of the decade” generated costs not only for the losing side, but also for the producers of the Aquaman sequel . The shooting for the film was completed earlier this year, but due to the recent events, it is necessary to reassemble the entire team and shoot a few scenes, thanks to which the editors will be able to finalize the entire work.
The decision to remove Amber Heard from the film is dictated in the first place by the producers’ fear of selecting the film. It is no secret that throughout almost the entire process, the public supported Depp, and the 36-year-old actress became the “villain” of the entire event. So if Heard were to appear in the cast of the new Aquaman , there is a good chance that viewers would boycott the entire movie.
Nevertheless, even if the actress is actually removed from the cast, we will be able to see a number of other Hollywood stars on the big screen. In addition to the aforementioned Jason Momoa, Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom will be played by Willem Dafoe, Dolph Lundgren, Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman, Temuera Morrison and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. The director of the film is James Wan, who worked on the first Aquaman and also Presence, Pile and Fast and Furious 7.
