Faced with the noise in her private life, millions of viewers signed a petition asking Amber Heard to withdraw from the Aquaman part 2 project.
Recently, DC Films and Warner Bros. has officially released the first trailer of the blockbuster Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (Vietnamese title: Aquaman and the lost kingdom). This is the next part of the series about the superhero Aquaman, which premiered the first part in 2018.
As revealed by director James Wan, the second part of Aquaman will focus on the brotherly love story between Arthur (Jason Momoa) and Orm (Patrick Wilson). He shared: “I introduced this to everyone from the beginning. Aquaman 1 is a romantic action-adventure movie, and the second part is an action-adventure movie full of brotherly love.”

Continuing the story of the first part, Arthur Curry has now become the king of the sea. At the same time, superhero Aquaman also carries the additional responsibility of a father, building his own family on the mainland. However, the “return and more powerful than before” of pirate Black Manta has destroyed the peace. Thanks to the power of the legendary black trident, Black Manta gained ancient dark powers.
Black Manta’s formidable power causes Aquaman to ask for help from his imprisoned brother Orm, former king of Atlantis. From then on, the two put aside their differences and animosity to unite to protect their family, kingdom and world from destruction.
Aquaman part 2 revolves around the brotherly love story of Arthur and Orm.
All original actors will return for part 2 of this famous blockbuster. Arthur Curry (Aquaman) played by Jason Momoa has left a strong mark in the hearts of audiences as a strong, wild superhero.
Fans will also be happy to see Patrick Wilson (as Orm), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (as Black Manta), Dolph Lundgren (as King Nereus), Randall Park (as Dr. Stephen Shin). Even Amber Heard – the famous “red-haired beauty” Mera in part 1 – was revealed again.
After a noisy divorce with Johnny Depp, Amber Heard lost the lawsuit and had to compensate her ex-husband more than 10 million USD (more than 250 billion VND). Along with that, the image of the female star completely collapsed in the eyes of the public. “Malicious”, “mean”, “lying”,… are the words that public opinion uses to picture Amber Heard. The climax was that more than 3 million signatures were collected to be sent to the Aquaman producer, requesting that the actress be removed from the project.
Despite a lot of pressure from the public, DC and Warner Bros. Director James Wan still decided to retain Amber Heard’s role in the second part. However, because the plot revolves around brotherly love, Amber Heard’s time will not be much.
Amber Heard did not have her role cut in Aquaman part 2 despite the controversy.
Superhero Aquaman, first debuted to the public in 2018 with the blockbuster Aquaman: King of Atlantis. Part 1 of the project earned more than 1 billion USD and is the highest-grossing film in the DC extended universe today. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is expected to be released in December this year.
