“Aquaman: Lost Kingdom”: Amber Heard thanks her fans after her return

After the libel trial against her ex-husband Johnny Depp (60), Amber Heard's (37) Instagram account has been very quiet for the most part in the past few months. However, the release of the recently released superhero spectacle "Aquaman: Lost Kingdom", in which she can also be seen, is now an opportunity for her to report back and thank her fans.

"Thank you to all of my fans for the overwhelming support and love for Mera's AQ return," Heard writes about several photos that were apparently taken during filming. It's her first post in about half a year. At that time she also thanked the fans in two posts. "Thank you for such an incredibly warm reception of my latest film 'In The Fire' at the Taormina Film Festival," wrote Heard, among other things. The actress celebrated her first major public appearance since the mud fight with Depp.

However, long before the release of "Aquaman: Lost Kingdom" - just before Christmas - it became known that Heard's character Mera would not have a major role in the film. The actress had already claimed in court that she would only be seen in a stripped-down version of the blockbuster. According to the industry magazine “The Hollywood Reporter,” she said, she “fought really hard to stay in the film.” The people in charge allegedly didn't want her in the film anymore and only shot a "very stripped down" version with her.

However, James Wan (46), the director of the film and its predecessor "Aquaman", said in an interview with "Entertainment Weekly" in September that a larger role was never planned for Heard. Other reports - such as Variety - say that she was almost fired, but that this consideration had nothing to do with the process. Instead, there was talk of a lack of chemistry with lead actor Jason Momoa (44), who plays the eponymous superhero.

Heard and Depp made serious accusations against each other in court in spring 2022. He had sued her for defamation. Heard was supposed to pay more than ten million US dollars in damages, and he in turn paid her two million. They later agreed to a settlement.
