Amber Heard may have been quietly booted from reprising her role of Mera in the upcoming sequel to “Aquaman” with Jason Momoa. While Warner Bros. has stood in defense of the 34-year-old actress during her ongoing legal war with ex-husband, Johnny Depp, the studio has reportedly fired Heard from appearing in “Aquaman 2,” and are allegedly replacing her with “Game of Thrones” star, Emilia Clarke, who had been a fan-requested favorite to replace.
The move comes on the heels of a global push for Heard’s exit, including an online petition worth over 1 million signatures strong.
The news of Amber Heard’s alleged firing from “Aquaman 2” was first reported by Australian entertainment news site, Sausage Roll, whose sources claim the star was let go for a breach in her contract having to do with a health & fitness clause.
“Amber Heard did not pass her physical examination. She’s put on some pounds and is in terrible shape. There is a clause in her contract which says she is required to be in good form ahead of shooting and she violated that,” the site reported.
Although the validity of Amber Heard’s firing has not been confirmed by either Warner Bros. or the actress, fans online are already celebrating with memes claiming victory in the war against the actress.
“Guys… I think Amber Heard just got fired from Aquaman 2… we actually did it?!” one comment read, while another person invoked an Undertaker meme to pronounce Heard’s alleged defeat.
The disdain for Heard has been ongoing for quite a while as fans of Johnny Depp, as well as those who believe Heard allegedly manipulated the legal system while she herself was the abuser, banded together for an online petition that has since been signed over 1.8 million times.
Amber Heard has not yet reacted to the alleged exit from “Aquaman 2.”
