Director Zack Snyder publicly expressed his support for the actress Amber Heardsaying he would work with her again in a second.
Snyder directed Heard as Mera in Justice League (2017) y Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021). He also played this role in Aquaman (2018) and the soon to be released Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (2023), both by James Wan.
Heard has been under public scrutiny due to her legal battle with her ex-husband, Johnny Depp. Even Walter Hamada, president of DC, announced during the Depp-Heard trial that the actress's role in the Aquaman sequel had been reduced due to concerns with the chemistry between her and Jason Momoa.
In an interview with THR, Snyder expressed about Heard being “dismayed” to see online abuse amid the controversy over her divorce from Depp:
“I just don't understand it. If other people don't like her, I don't know what to say. I'd work with her in a second.”
And while Heard was not fired from the sequel to Aquaman As many might have predicted, his role in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has been reduced considerably, as mentioned above. Director Wan has said that this is a natural consequence of the second film being more of an “action-adventure 'bromance' movie” between Arthur and Orm (Patrick Wilson), while the first focused more on the romantic tension between Arthur and Mera. While this is a plausible justification for Heard's truncated role in the film, his off-screen controversy has led to speculation about the real reason for Mera's scenes.
WOULD YOU RETURN TO THE DC UNIVERSE? OR WOULD YOU CONSIDER WORKING WITH MARVEL?
The same medium asked him about his future plans in the world of superheroes.
Would Snyder return to the DC universe? If James Gunn talked to him to invite him back to the DC world, he would consider it, only if it involved making an adaptation of Dark Knight Returnsa “true representation of the graphic novel.”
What if Marvel came knocking on your door?I would think about it if it were a movie Daredevil o Elektraperhaps to adapt Elektra Lives Again by Frank Miller.
