A petition calling for the removal of Amber Heard from the upcoming film 'Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,' which wrapped filming, has reached over 3 million signatures. Launched in 2020, the petition has rocketed during Johnny Depp's ongoing US$50 million defamation trial against his ex-wife, claiming that her 2018 Washington Post op-ed about surviving domestic violence ruined his career and reputation. 

The creator of the change.com petition writes that Heard has been "exposed as a as a domestic abuser by Johnny Depp," referencing Depp's lawsuit, and calls for Heard in her role of Mera to be removed from the 'Aquaman' sequel.

Though the trial has yet to conclude, the petition calls out Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment directly to remove Heard from the film, which has been delayed for release until 2023, on the grounds that she allegedly "systematically crusaded to ruin Depp in Hollywood, repeating multiple accounts of fake incidents in which she had actually abused Johnny Depp, but lied and created false accounts of him being the abuser."

TMZ reported that, according to film journalist Grace Randolph, who has a reputation for breaking similar kinds of comic book flick scoop, Heard's role has been reduced to less than 10 minutes of screen time. We'll have to wait until March 2023 to see...

Many actors were cast for movies and shot scenes that ended up being axed from the film's final version. It might have been because their characters and/or plot didn't make much sense in the editing process, or because test audiences didn't like their particular character, or because of a real-life scandal with the actor. Whatever the reason was, the truth is that there are many actors who were left out of film's final theatrical releases.
