The petition to replace Amber Heard as Mera in Aquaman 2 surpassed 4.5 million signatures.
Though the filming was finished in January, the petition got its revival as the defamation trial progressed.
It gained traction in 2020, after Depp's exit from the Fantastic Beasts franchise.
On Wednesday, 1 June, the jury shared their verdicts, finding that Heard had defamed Depp on all three counts.
The update about Depp's victory was shared on the Charnge.org's petition, titled Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2.
Aquaman 2 is set to be released in March 2023. Some of those who signed suggested Blake Lively should replace Amber Heard. Mera appears on screen for less than 10 minutes according to numerous sources.
Jeanne Larson started the petition, claiming:
"Men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women. This must be recognized, and action must be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry. Do the right thing. Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2."
The next goal will likely be six million signatures, and it remains a mystery whether someone from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment will comment.
This petition is one of the top signed on Change.org.
