Amber Heard and Johnny Depp have been in the news for the longest for their ongoing legal tussle and while Johnny Depp has been dropped from the Fantastic Beast franchise, netizens have been pressing the production house, Warner Bros, to fire Amber Heard. Following the viral petitions to drop Amber Heard from the upcoming superhero flick Aquaman 2, the production house has kept its mum over the controversy and here’s a possible reason.

Incidentally, the rights to both Fantastic Beasts and Aquaman 2 are owned by the production house Warner Bros and the selective decision to drop only Johnny Depp from Fantastic Beasts 3 has irked the netizens. Following the rage, a petition to fire Amber Heard from Aquaman 2 in an attempt to bring justice to Johnny Depp has gone viral and already crossed over a million signatures. However, as per reports, Warner Bros cannot fire Amber Heard from the Aquaman franchise owing to her legal contract.
