A petition to remove actress Amber Heard from the Aquaman sequel has been signed by more than 2.97 million people. At the three-million mark, it will become one of the most-signed petitions ever to feature on Change.org, reported The National.

The petition calls on Warner Bros and DC Entertainment to remove Heard from the impending Aquaman and the the Lost Kingdom, which is set to hit theatres on March 17, 2023. This new development comes about as Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against his former wife gathers momentum, with the trial revealing how Heard was violent towards Depp during their marriage.

Johnny Depp testifies that ex-wife Amber Heard was violent toward him

“Amber Heard has been exposed as a domestic abuser by Johnny Depp… Men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women,” says the petition. “This must be recognised, and action must be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry.”

Earlier this year, director James Wan took to Instagram in January to announce that filming of Aquaman and the the Lost Kingdom had come to an end. “And finally, finally, finally picture wrap on the actual last day of #Aquaman.”

The Aquaman sequel stars Jason Momoa in the leading role, along with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Randall Park, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren and Nicole Kidman.

Heard, who played Aquaman’s love interest Mera in the original film, was also cast in the sequel, although reports suggest that her screen time has been reduced to 10 minutes.

The petition details the numerous allegations of abuse that have emerged against Heard during the trial and highlights how the actress has affected Depp’s career with her own claims of domestic violence.

“Since Heard’s divorce from Johnny Depp, she has 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.”

A big point of contention of the ongoing trial was the revelation that Depp was dropped from major roles as a result of Heard’s allegations against him, causing irreparable damage to his career.

Depp claims that mere days after Heard published an op-ed piece in The Washington Post claiming to be a victim of domestic abuse, he was dropped from the sixth instalment of Pirates of the Caribbean, despite his long-running role as the film’s leading character, Captain Jack Sparrow.

Disney dropped Depp from ‘Pirates’ over abuse allegations: ex-agent

“Two years had gone by of constant worldwide talk about me being this wife-beater. So I’m sure that Disney was trying to cut ties to be safe. The #MeToo movement was in full swing at that point,” Depp said on the stand.

In November 2020, the actor was also forced to step down from his role as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, at the request of Warner Bros.

While Depp has not appeared in a film since 2020’s Minimata, in January Variety reported that he would star as French king Louis XV in a new film directed by French filmmaker Maiwenn, with production set to begin in summer.

She has ruined one of the greatest ever career with, Johnny Depp with all of her lies. How can I support her now. I've watch every movies Johnny has ever done and now, no more great movies from him. She has sat in court over a week now with the same look on her face, almost like she is about to cry. How does she freeze her face like that for so long? Her story is al over the place. Take her out of movies and see how she likes it. Takes two to make it and two to break it.

Amber Heard is a toxic, lying, manipulative excuse of a person. She needs to pay for what she has done to Johnny. She shouldn’t be allowed to destroy any more lives. Lock her away!!!
