Amber Heard shuts down rumours of not returning for ‘Aquaman 2’

Over the past year, speculation that the 34-year-old actress might not star in the sequel to the 2018 film has grown. In fact, a petition from fans of ex-husband Johnny Depp, calling on her to be removed from the movie has garnered more than 1.2 million signatures, with the organisers branding Heard a ‘domestic abuser’. However, Heard squashed her haters' hopes during an interview with Entertainment Weekly. "I'm super excited about the amount of fan love and the amount of fan appreciation that Aquaman has acquired and that it has garnered so much excitement for the film and Mera that it means we'll be coming back," Heard told EW. "I'm so excited to film that." In February 2019, Warner Bros. announced that Aquaman 2 would be released in 2022. Jason Momoa is expected to reprise his role as the DC superhero. Production has not begun yet. Heard made her comments a week after Warner Bros. forced Depp to quit Fantastic Beasts 3, which sees the return of his character Grindelwald.
