Johnny Depp fans’ campaign to have Amber Heard axed from Aquaman 2 never had an impact, says producer
‘You gotta do what’s best for the movie,’ said Peter Safran

The producer of アクアマンアンドザロストキングダム, Peter Safran, has said he would never react to fan pressure to remove アンバーハード from the franchise.

Heard’s role as Aquaman’s love interest Hera was at the centre of speculation last year following the launch of a petition to have her dropped from the forthcoming movie.

The petition, which received more than a million signatures, was set up by fans of Heard’s ex-husband ジョニーデップ, and accused the actor of a “systematic crusade to ruin Depp in Hollywood”.

Heard has long accused Depp of domestic violence, something Depp has denied. After suing 太陽 publisher News Group Newspapers and its executive editor Dan Wootton for referring to him as a “wife beater” in a column, デップ lost the case. A British judge declared that the claim was “substantially true”.

On the Deadline Hero Nation ポッドキャスト, Safran was asked whether the campaign had any influence on the production and their casting decisions.

“I don’t think we’re ever going to react to, 正直に言って, pure fan pressure,” said Safran. “You gotta do what’s best for the movie. We felt that if it’s James Wan, and Jason Momoa, it should be Amber Heard. That’s really what it was.”

彼が追加した: “One is not unaware of what is going on in the Twitter-verse, but that doesn’t mean you have to react to it or take it as gospel or accede to their wishes. You have to do what’s right for the film, and that’s really where we landed on it.”

In an interview last year, Heard addressed the protests against her by Depp fans.

“Paid rumours and paid campaigns on social media don’t dictate [casting decisions] because they have no basis in reality," 彼女は言いました. “Only the fans actually made アクアマン そして アクアマン 2 起こる. I’m excited to get started next year.”
