Grapevine have been buzzing around Jason Momoa’s Aquaman 2. The first instalment of the DC extended universe starred Amber Heard as Mera. However, due to her legal conflicts on the rise with Johnny Depp, fans have been signing petitions to strike her out from the franchise.
Emilia Clarke was said to be roped in for replacement. But now there seems to be another twist to it. This whole incident began as soon as Amber Heard’s audio of confessing to physical assault went viral online. All this while, it was Johnny Depp being portrayed as the villain, but this turned things upside down. Supporters of the Fantastic Beasts actor signed petitions to remove Heard from Aquaman. Soon after, it was said that the DC makers were giving a thought to it for the same.
If media reports are anything to go by, the makers of Aquaman 2 were in talks with Emilia Clarke. The actress has touched the skies with her remarkable performance in Game Of Thrones. Her equation with Jason Momoa on the show was also very much appreciated. But now, it is Gossip Girl fame, Blake Lively, joining the game too.
Speculations are on the rounds that Blake Lively is being considered as another replacement of Amber Heard. While the talks with Emilia Clarke still remain to confirm, Blake Lively may just fit the bill as per makers.
In fact, an Aquaman fan has gone onto replace Amber Heard’s look with that of Blake. Yes, it’s the same green shimmery costume that they photoshopped Emilia Clarke in. And to be honest, she looks as stunning as ever in this shimmery attire.
