‘Aquaman’ Star Amber Heard Thanks Fans For “Overwhelming Support” In Mera’s Return

Amber Heard reprised her role of Mera in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The actress took to social media to acknowledge all the support she’s been receiving from fans who watched the DC Studios film.

“After all this time, Aquaman 2 made its splash (sorry, it’s too easy),” Heard posted on Instagram along with a series of photos from the set of the movie. “Thank you to all of my fans for the overwhelming support and love in Mera’s AQ return. Thank you so much.”

Heard first played the role of Mera in 2017’s Justice League before reprising her role in the Aquaman

film in 2018 directed by James Wan.

The Aquaman sequel directed by Wan from a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick was released on Dec. 22, 2023. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom picks up several years after Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) became king of Atlantis, married Mera, and had a son they named Arthur Jr.

The film’s sequel was announced after the allegations Heard raised against Johnny Depp. Warner Bros. removed Depp from Fantastic Beasts 3 and an online petition to have Heard removed from the Aquaman sequel garnered over 1.5 million signatures.

Earlier this year, Wan addressed rumors that Heard’s involvement in the sequel was watered down.

“I always pitched this to everyone from the get-go. The first Aquaman was Arthur (Jason Mamoa) and Mera’s (Heard) journey. The second movie was always going to be Arthur and Orm (Patrick Wilson),” Wan told EW. “So, the first was a romance action-adventure movie, the second one is a bromance action-adventure movie. We’ll leave it at that.”

In her testimony, Heard said newer versions of the script had her character’s presence dwindled saying, “I was given a script and then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes that had action in it, that depicted my character and another character — without giving any spoilers away — two characters fighting with one another, and they basically took a bunch out of my role. They just removed a bunch out.”
