Well, first of all, I feel really sorry for all the Johnny Depp fans for their favorite actor is behaving just like a teenage ex-lover. There will be people who’d point things at Amber for being at the wrong side of the relationship but, there’s an old saying that one must always keep his personal and professional life separate. The Hollywood Reporter has recently reported that Johnny Depp really wanted to have Amber removed from Aquaman.
The chairman of Warner Bros. Kevin Tsujihara is going to be tapped to examine under the oath, whether he has played any kind of role in ‘blacklisting’ Amber Heard from the studio or not? Now, in the THR write-up, they mentioned about the possible chances of Johnny lobbying Tsujihara to cut Heard from Aquaman and also from other future WB projects. If this is true, then I think Johnny has crossed the limits with this one.
As per lawsuit documents of Heard, she wrote while explaining domestic abuse,
“Following my highly-publicized separation from Johnny … I lost a part for a movie in which I had already been cast. Questions arose as to whether I would be able to keep my role of Mera in the movies Justice League and Aquaman.”
There could be chances of Johnny influencing WB as we all know that he was playing a very crucial character of Grindelwald and maybe, Waner Bros. feared that if they wouldn’t cut the role of Amber, it could lead to Jonny’s possible departure from Fantastic Beasts. One of the sources, regarding this, said,
“Executives at Warner Bros. are wondering how to deal with the backlash of the Depp matter on the Harry Potter franchise. High-level female execs at the studio are extremely worried about working with Depp and the message it sends to the public, especially after the recent sordid departure of CEO Kevin Tsujihara. This is yet another blow to the morale of female employees at the studio. If Warner Bros. continues to stick by Depp, it would reveal a lot about the values the company holds.”
