Amber Heard fans are waiting as the actress is all set to return in the highly anticipated sequel to ‘Aquaman’. Warner Bros unveiled the first “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” trailer at this year’s CinemaCon, and fans were in for a pleasant surprise when they got a glimpse of Heard in action. The trailer features two short shots of the actress battling underwater as Mera, the love interest of Aquaman (played by Jason Momoa) in the first movie. While she doesn’t have any dialogue in the trailer, her mere presence is sure to get fans excited for what’s to come.

How did the rumor mill start?
Last June, a post on Just Jared reported that Heard was being banned from the sequel. However, the said message has now been removed.
“The rumor mill continues as it has from day one — inaccurate, insensitive, and a little bit insane,” a Heard spokesperson told Insider in response to the post.
Mera, the character played by Amber Heard, first appeared in the 2017 movie “Justice League” before becoming a main character alongside Jason Momoa in the 2018 hit “Aquaman.” During her ongoing defamation lawsuit with her former husband Johnny Depp, however, it was revealed that her role in the upcoming sequel “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” has been significantly reduced.
“I fought really hard to stay in the movie — they wouldn’t put me in the movie,” Heard said on the stand, adding that she played “a very stripped-down version” of the role cutting out action sequences. between herself and another character.
From the looks of the trailer, it looks like Mera’s role as a supporting character in the first film will be overshadowed in the sequel. Unlike the first film where Aquaman and Mera largely teamed up, the upcoming sequel will see Aquaman team up with his half-brother Orm Marius, played by Patrick Wilson.
