Amber Heard on Aquaman 2

The actress shared some throwback pictures and expressed her gratitude for the immense love and support she received from fans. These pictures captured moments with her daughter Oonagh during the filming of Aquaman 2. This Instagram post has become a hot topic, especially considering Heard's previous concerns about the aftermath of her public legal battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

The caption of her post read, “After all this time, Aquaman 2 made its splash (sorry, it’s too easy). Thank you to all of my fans for the overwhelming support and love in Mera’s AQ return. Thank you so much.”

The first photo in her post showcased her in character as Mera with red hair, taking a selfie. The next image features her feeding her daughter from a milk bottle. The last picture in her carousel shows Heard in a playful mood, wearing an olive green puffer jacket and sunglasses.


Amber Heard and Johnny Depp's case

During the 2022 defamation trial, Heard claimed that Warner Bros, the production company behind Aquaman, were initially hesitant to include her in the sequel. She also said that many of her scenes and action sequences were removed from Aquaman 2. However, director James Wan countered these claims and said that Heard's reduced screen time was intentional.


Unlike the first film, which focused on the love story between Mera and Arthur (Jason Momoa), Aquaman 2 took a different approach and focused on the bromance between Arthur and Orm (Patrick Wilson). Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom released on December 22, 2023 is enjoying success in theatres and Amber's return to the film has been well-received by fans.
