During her defamation trial with her former husband, Johnny Depp, Heard said her role was heavily reduced in the sequel, “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” after fighting to stay in the upcoming sequel. “I fought really hard to stay in the movie — they didn’t want to include me in the film,” Heard said on the stand in May, adding that she performed “a very pared-down version” of the role that took away action scenes between herself and another character. Of her role in the sequel, Heard added: ‘They basically took a bunch out of my role. They just removed a bunch out.” “Aquaman” became one of WB’s most successful DC films, grossing over $1.1 billion. Entertainment journalist Grace Randolph tweeted in late April that Heard was said to have under 10 minutes of screen time in the sequel. During the defamation trial, Heard said she wasn’t sure if she would appear in the final cut of the film. “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” is in theaters on March 17, 2023.
