Amber Heard’s role in “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” was almost taken away.

New reports disclose that two scenes featuring the actress in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) movie were ultimately deleted.

Heard’s Return as Mera

Heard is back as Mera in the latest DCEU movie “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.” However, it is important to note that her character’s role has been significantly reduced in the film. Now there’s information about a time when even this limited role was in danger.

Behind-the-Scenes Turmoil

Variety in an in-depth report on Amber Heard’s involvement in “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” provides insight into the turmoil behind the scenes that risked her role.

The report uncovers details from the highly publicized Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation trial offering an understanding of the decision-making process involving Heard’s participation in the film.

An Unwanted Return

Reportedly after the release of “Aquaman” in 2018, Heard was initially advised not to return for the sequel due to perceived issues with chemistry between her and Jason Momoa who plays the main hero.

It was a rocky start for Heard’s return but this decision was ultimately not put into action.

Two Mera Scenes Left Out

The report goes on to reveal that at least two scenes featuring Heard as Mera were removed from “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.”

These scenes included an intense action sequence in which Mera confronts Black Manta and a romantic scene alongside Momoa’s Aquaman.

Reasons for the Deletions

The removal of these scenes suggests potential conflicts between Amber Heard Jason Momoa and director James Wan. Momoa’s behavior on set raised concerns as he reportedly exhibited erratic actions such as mimicking Johnny Depp and advocating for Heard’s dismissal.

However, a DC spokesperson denied these claims emphasizing Momoa’s professionalism throughout the production.

Regarding James Wan notes from therapy sessions with Heard imply moments of tension on set. The report mentions an incident in which Wan raised his voice at Heard who felt unjustly blamed.

A DC spokesperson countered these allegations by highlighting Wan’s reputation for respectful interactions with his cast and crew.

Given the strain caused by these issues, it’s unsurprising that at least two scenes featuring Mera were removed offering a glimpse into the tumultuous journey of “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.”
