New fan artwork for James Wan’s upcoming Aquaman 2 replaces Amber Heard with Emilia Clarke as Mera.
Amid the controversy surrounding Johnny Depp and Heard’s authorized battle, the petition to take away the latter from the sequel to Aquaman is on its solution to reaching 500,000 signatures. What’s extra, some stories point out that Warner Bros. has already fired the actress by shopping for out her contract, however till affirmation comes from the corporate, we’re taking this as mere rumour. It’d make sense, although. After the movement to dismiss Depp’s defamation lawsuit was denied, there’s now a critical risk that Heard may very well be going through jail time if discovered responsible of manipulating proof in opposition to her former husband. As such, it’s clear why WB would need to lower all ties together with her earlier than it’s time to speak extra about Aquaman 2.
What we’re questioning about, although, is who’ll exchange Heard as Mera, or if the character will even be included within the sequel. One factor’s for sure; the chemistry between Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry and Heard’s Mera was off the roof, so the studio would positively hesitate to throw it out the window for the sake of comfort. So, the one different possibility is to recast the function.
And you realize whose chemistry collectively could be even higher? Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke’s, who beforehand shared the display in HBO’s Sport of Thrones and have managed to stay good pals ever since. When you’re having a tough time imagining the Westerosi alum as DC’s Mera, then a brand new fan artwork posted on Instagram would possibly change your thoughts.

As we’ve witnessed over the previous few months, followers are adamantly campaigning to see Heard faraway from the manufacturing of Aquaman 2. If that does occur, then Clarke could be the right alternative for the function, until WB decides to go down a distinct path with the sequel altogether.
