The rumour-mill is in full swing as people now think that the Game of Thrones star will replace Amber Heard as Mera in the Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
Back in 2019, fans started a Change.org petition just months after Depp first sued his ex-wife.
The petition read: “Men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women. This must be recognised, 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.”
With regards to the verdict, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor proved that Amber Heard's 2018 article in The Washington Post was defamatory and won $15 million (£12 million), later capped at $10.35 million (£8.27 million) by Judge Penny Azcarate.
In a separate verdict, Heard was also awarded two million dollars (£1.6 million) in damages via a counterclaim.
Taking all of that into account is enough to get fans excited.
One person commented: "I can actually see this. It works well. Bye bye Amber heard lol #Aquaman2."
Another said: "Uhh ok seriously tho... can we get Emilia Clarke to play #Mera now? Now that #Aquaman has been pushed back to December 2023 WB has loads of time to make things happen."
"She certainly had more chemistry with Jason momoa," a third added.
A fourth said: "@wbpictures and @WBHomeEnt make it official replace Amber Heard with Emilia Clarke as Mera and make the announcement. That's an aquaman people would 100% be interested in then."
Someone else commented: "Emilia Clarke is far superior. She’s a better actress and a better person. I would pay to see Aquaman 2 just to see Emilia play Mera."
While another person simply wasn't having any it, saying: "Nobody gives a s**t about Amelia Clarke as much as I love her replacing Amber heard. it's not going to happen so give it a rest already."
"It's not going to happen so give it a rest already," they repeated.
"There are no rumours of this happening only that maybe you and a couple fools making posts."
Well, a rep for Amber Heard previously said that there was no chance Heard was going to get cut from the film.
In June, the rep said: “The rumour mill continues as it has from day one - inaccurate, insensitive, and slightly insane.”
