Amber Heard is an actress and model who has featured in many films and is recently known for her role as Mera with the titular Aquaman. However, the hot topic is regarding her trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp for defaming him for domestic violence. However, the cases have taken a bad toll on her career after she was found guilty. Petitions have been signed to get her removed from the upcoming Aquaman film. The team is under great pressure to do so as it has reached over 500,000 signatures and the producers are obliged to listen to the majority audience. Moreover, recent rumours say Emilia Clarke will replace Amber Heard but nothing has been confirmed and the fans will have to wait.
