In June of last year, a now-deleted post on Just Jared reported that Heard was being “cut” from the sequel.

Heard’s character of Mera was first introduced in the 2017 film “League of Justicebefore becoming the lead in 2018’s “Aquaman” alongside Momoa.
during her defamation trial with her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, Heard said her role dropped considerably in “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom”.
“I fought so hard to stay in the movie, they didn’t want to put me in the movie,” Heard said on the stand, adding that she played “a very scaled-down version” of the role that took away action scenes. between her and another character.
If the trailer is any indication, Heard’s Mera isn’t the main supporting character she was in the first movie. Instead of Aquaman and Mera teaming up for most of the film, in the sequel, it’s Aquaman and his half-brother Orm Marius, played by Patrick Wilson.
“Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” opens in theaters on December 20.
