Almost a million people have signed a petition to remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2.

The petition comes after Heard’s ex-husband Johnny Depp was asked to resign from his role in Fantastic Beasts 3 after losing a libel battle with British newspaper The Sun, who called the actor a ‘wife beater’.


Despite being asked to resign and only shooting one scene, Depp is still receiving his full salary for the film.

Following Depp’s departure from the franchise, people are now calling for Heard to be axed from the upcoming Aquaman 2 movie which she is starring in alongside Jason Momoa.

Heard plays Mera in the extremely successful franchise which saw its first movie gross more than $1 billion.


The petition created on Change.org currently has 976,049 signatures at the time of writing. Many people believe Depp has been done a disservice being asked to be removed from Fantastic Beasts 3 and that it would only be fair that Heard is removed from Aquaman 2 as well.

The description for the petition titled ‘Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2‘ makes various allegations about the 34-year-old actor who married Depp in 2015. A year later Heard filed for divorce which was finalised in 2017.

Part of the petition reads, ‘Since Heard’s divorce from Johnny Depp, she has systematically crusaded to ruin Depp in Hollywood’.

It continues:

Men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women. This must be recognized, and action must be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry.

Do the right thing. Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2.

Depp and Heard’s divorce has been extremely turbulent, with the pair making several allegations about one another. In addition to suing The Sun, Depp attempted to sue his ex-wife for $50 million for defamation over an article the Zombieland actor wrote for The Washington Post. 

While the petition to remove Heard from Aquaman 2 gains momentum, another petition calling for Depp to be reinstated as his Fantastic Beasts character Grindelwald has been made.

Created four days ago, the petition currently has over 170,000 signatures.

The bio for the petition reads, ‘Johnny Depp was asked by Warner Bros to resign and leave his role of Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts 3 movie. This happened because of the verdict of his case with “The Sun” tabloid that was completely unfair. We want him back! Warner Bros should listen to the public or we will boycott the movie!!!’
