Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

Only a few weeks away from the release of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom worldwide, a key cast member has been excluded from the new trailer of the movie.

The latest trailer of the movie allegedly features Amber Heard entirely cut out, owing to reports that her part was diminished in response to the bad publicity surrounding her high-profile legal dispute with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

The majority of the characters from the first movie, including Nicole Kidman’s Atlanta and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta, were seen in the new one-minute and thirty-second teaser, but the character of Mera, played by Amber Heard was never even seen or mentioned in the new trailer.

The 37-year-old actress made a brief cameo appearance in the first trailer of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom as her character Mera. The first trailer released on 14 September 2023, which is two minutes and forty-six seconds, barely showed the actress, leading to fans speculating about the extent of her involvement in the film, and it seemed that DC Studios were treading carefully in the matters associated with Amber Heard.

What does the trailer of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom feature?

Arthur Curry is shown in the first trailer for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom in his new role as King of the Seven Kingdoms. Additionally, he is shown holding a newborn son; this suggests that he and Mera got married and had Arthur Curry Jr.

But now that he’s retrieved the cursed Black Trident, Black Manta is back and stronger than ever. He can seemingly bring the dead back to life, with the power of Black Trident, and they will do as he commands. In the new video, Black Manta swears to kill Aquaman’s entire family in retaliation for the death of his father.

The official synopsis states, “Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all. This time Black Manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic Black Trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force. To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction”.

In an interview with EW in September, director James Wan said that Aquaman 2 would have Heard’s character in a smaller part, as it focused more on showing bromance between Orm and Aquaman for the sequel compared to the first movie.

The movie Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom is scheduled to release on December 22, 2023.
