Amber Heard could be imprisoned for three years and lose her role on Aquaman 2 amid her ongoing legal battle with ex Johnny Depp.
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s divorce was finalized in 2016. However, their ongoing legal battle continues after Heard alleged that her ex-husband was abusive and violent.
Earlier this year, an audio recording leaked which changed the narrative of their separation and it might affect Heard’s future and career. According to Small Screen, she could be fired from Aquaman and face a 3-year jail time.
Amber Heard could face 3-year of imprisonment
Amber Heard alleged that Johnny Depp was abusing her when they were together. In fact, she appeared in court with bruises on May 27, 2016.
However, according to Depp, she only “painted on bruises” to obtain a temporary restraining order from him. He denied that he laid a hand on her.
Depp and Heard had a blowout fight on May 21, 2016, that led to their split. The actress alleged that the Fantastic Beasts actor hurled a cell phone on her face and tore out her hair.
Heard’s friend iO Tillett Wright called 911 at 8:27 p.m at about the time the exes were still in an argument. However, the officers who responded found no evidence of assault in the place.
Another call was made at 10:09 p.m. and two LAPD officers visited Heard’s home and still did not find any evidence of abuse.
Based on the surveillance video Depp left his apartment at 8:29 p.m. He wasn’t aware of Heard’s injuries until she filed for a restraining order, six days later with a bruise on her face.
If Heard will be proven guilty of faking her bruises to charge Depp with a crime, she could face up to three years of imprisonment.

Johnny Depp’s ex-wife might lose Aquaman role
Amber Heard is part of the superhero movie “Aquaman” where she plays the role of Mera. However, there are rumors that she might be axed from the movie.
At present, over 420,000 have already signed the petition. Jeanne Larson started it and alleged that Heard was the real domestic abuser.
Depp has presented several incidents of domestic abuse from Heard’s hands. She punched him twice in the face and cut his finger with a vodka bottle.
Several Twitter users also want a new Mera in the movie. One said that he would not watch Aquaman with Heard in it.
I'm definitely not watching and Aquaman movie with Amber Heard's face in it
She deserves what she did to Johnny, and worse????????

Just going to put this out there, fuck Amber Heard. Lying for years and saying that men cannot be physically abused in a relationship is fucked up. DC better be finding a new Mera for Aquaman 2.

Didn't watch Aquaman b/c of Amber Heard. Won't watch anything she is a part of. She's an abuser but b/c she's a woman she gets a free pass? Johnny got his ass dragged then people got quiet when the receipts came out. ????
Also … hard pass on Pirates of Carribean reboot. Just no.

Meanwhile, another said that Heard should be fired because she deserved what she did to Johnny Depp. The actor was fired from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise due to her allegations against the actor.
