The personal battle between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp continues to remain in the news. Both actors have accused the other of domestic abuse and most recently seemed somehow connected to the removal of Depp from the next Fantastic Beasts film. The role of Grindelwald will now be played by Mads Mikkelsen.
Since the initial news broke involving her alleged actions, fans of the Aquaman franchise have been pushing for Warner Bros to replace Heard in the role of Mera that she originated in the 2018 film. The sequel is set to be released in 2022 with Jason Momoa and Patrick Wilson both set to return along with director James Wan. There has been no word about it from the studio, it is likely they will have to justify their action or inaction having already removed Depp.
