The battle between exes Johnny Depp and Amber Heard continues: Depp's ongoing legal battles reveal he may have asked a Warner Bros. executive to get her fired from "Aquaman."
Per THR, former WB head Kevin Tsuijihara will be testifying about a claim that Depp asked him to blacklist Heard from all WB projects, including "Aquaman."
Heard obviously did play Mera as planned in "Aquaman," most likely because she'd already appeared as the character in "Justice League."
In her motion to dismiss Depp's $50 million defamation lawsuit against her, Heard said, "Following my highly-publicized separation from Johnny, … I lost a part for a movie in which I had already been cast." Whether that refers to "Aquaman" or another film, we don't know.
Both actors were out promoting their WB films last year: Heard had "Aquaman" and Depp had "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald," in which he plays Grindelwald.
Depp’s representative, Adam Waldman, said that issuing subpoenas to Heard, Elon Musk and Tsujihara is "a last ditch effort to divert attention and stall [the] looming day of reckoning" for Depp's former lawyers.
