It looks like the public support of Amber Heard has entirely disappeared!
James Wan’s Aquaman 2 is nearing the end of pre-production and is scheduled to begin shooting in early 2021. The sequel to the 2018 smash has been in the pipeline for a while and there’s been a lot of speculation as to who will star in the film, much of it centered upon Amber Heard reprising the role of Mera. But now, we’re hearing that she may have to share screen time with another underwater character.
Leaker Grace Randolph is reporting that Wan is currently searching for an Asian actress to play a female lead in the movie. This is likely to be for the role of Dolphin, a prominent comic book heroine and Arthur Curry’s sometimes lover.
First introduced in 1968, Dolphin was once a regular human girl who accidentally fell overboard on a cruise ship. She was assumed to have drowned, but was actually abducted by mysterious beings who used her to test aquatic genetic modifications. By the time they’d finished, she’d lost all memory of being human and escaped the lab in a feral state. Over the course of her story, she gradually reclaimed her humanity with the help of the Atlanteans and other heroes.
