After a delay, the defamation trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard resumed on May 16 for the fifth week. The ex-couple is battling it out in a Fairfax, Virginia court over a defamation claim filed by Depp against the Aquaman actress. Amber Heard’s witnesses presented her testimony in court to illustrate how Johnny Depp’s attorney Adam Waldman’s claims adversely harmed her cinematic career, but she unintentionally disclosed some key spoilers from her next picture Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. She talked a lot about Amber’s role in the movie.
Kathryn Arnold, an industry consultant, told Entertainment Weekly that, “I believe that in the first act of the movie, she was injured somehow, or it had something to do with a baby.” She said that she had not read the script and that all she knew about it came from Amber.
“In this new Aquaman 2 movie, Mera ends up in the hospital early and doesn’t really come out until the end to kind of finish things up,” she said. Amber’s Mera’s interactions with Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, as well as the action scenes, were cut from the film, according to her. Amber had worked really hard for several months in preparation for an action sequence, but when she got on set, her role had diminished and the scene had been cut.

When asked about Amber’s career, Kathryn stated it was “on the precipice of a meteoric rise” after her role in Aquaman, but it was harmed by “a lot of negative publicity.” Amber’s “world has been silenced in terms of opportunities,” she added, estimating that she has lost between $45 and $50 million in film and television roles and endorsements.
Aquaman and Mera do get married in the comic books and have a child together, however the couple has yet to marry on the big screen adaption. As a result, viewers will learn a significant plot aspect for the upcoming film. Given how strictly scripts for movies based on comic books are guarded, and the amount of money at stake, it’s safe to assume that DC Films will be furious at this unexpected leak of a portion of their script.
