Amber Heard claims that Warner Bros. "didn't want to include me" in the upcoming Aquaman sequel due to the fallout of her divorce from Johnny Depp.

The actor said during her defamation trial against Depp that she was actively scheduling timing for filming the second Aquaman movie until Depp's team called her a liar regarding her abuse claims against Depp. Heard said that communications about the sequel stopped at that point.

Heard stars as Mera in several comic book films from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment. She debuted as the character in Justice League in what she called a three-picture option. The second film was Aquaman, in which she had a more co-lead role opposite Jason Momoa and for which she earned US$1mil.

Heard said she earned twice as much for Aquaman 2, the third film in her contract, but also said that he role in the film was a very pared-down version.

"I was given a script and then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes that had action in it, that depicted my character and another character, without giving any spoilers away, two characters fighting with one another, and they basically took a bunch out of my role," Heard said. "They just removed a bunch out."

Reports surfaced earlier this year that Head only appears in about 10 minutes of the Aquaman sequel, which is officially titled Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom. James Wan returns to the direct the film after earning solid reviews for 2018's Aquaman, which earned over US$1bil worldwide. Joining Momoa and Heard in the sequel are Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison and Nicole Kidman.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is scheduled to be released on March 17, 2023. – Reuters
