Amber Heard ‘Honored’ to Be in ‘Aquaman 2’ Despite Johnny Depp Supporters’ Fury

Amber Heard said during the slander trial that she feels “honored” to be in the highly anticipated sequel to Aquaman. During the trial, Johnny Depp fans were mean to her.

The star from Rum Diary said she is excited for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom to come out. After her trial, she returned to the big screen in In the Fire.

During the Taormina Film Festival in Italy, someone asked Heard if she was excited to be back as Mera with Jason Momoa.

“Oh, of course,” Heard said, adding, “The best luck you can have as an actor is to be able to balance both. Aquaman, that franchise and the machinery behind it, I’m very honored, honored to be a part of that.”

The controversial actor said, “And then there are these small passion projects like In the Fire, where I’m proud to have gotten to know the filmmaker and the cast, and we got dirty together, to breathe life into this story.”

“I am balancing both types of projects and am grateful to manage the unique challenges each project brings,” said the ex-wife of the Pirates of the Caribbean star.

During the trial, which was watched by a lot of people, the mother of one said that her part in the action-fantasy movie was cut down because Depp’s lawyers called her abuse claims a “hoax.”

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

Walter Hamada, the head of DC films, denied her claims when he was called to court to talk about the actor’s smaller part.

Hamada said that Heard’s part wasn’t cut down because of the trial, but because there were worries that the actor and Momoa wouldn’t get along.

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

During the trial, more than 4.5 million people signed a petition to get Heard out of the movie.
