Amber Heard Aquaman 2 Screentime Reportedly Revealed
Even though Aquaman recently got delayed, and a pretty substantial delay at that, it doesn’t mean that all the news is going to dry up.
On the contrary, we keep hearing about test screenings and things that have happened. The latest is a report in regards to just how much time Amber Heard’s character Mera has in the most recent cut and surprising many people.
She’s in quite a lot of films.
So we’ve heard that Aquaman Two had to go for some reshoots already, possibly three times. And James Wan, the director, even said after the delay that there are still more things to reshoot.
So it sounds like things will be changing. We know multiple different versions of the film were screened, but again, we don’t really know the extent of what’s in each version.
One of the latest versions reportedly featured over 20 minutes of Mera involving a subplot and things that were not featured before.
Now, according to some descriptions, it sounds like this might be some of the older footage where she was integral to the plot. But then when they started cutting it all out and just making her get injured at the beginning of the film and then come back at the end,
it sounds like that could have really hurt the flow of the film. So maybe they’re trying to test out different cuts where she’s partially restored in the middle or at some points in the film to try to offset the Yankees of just cutting.
out her complete side story. But again, I think that could pose issues because the more you increase her time now, the more credit and well, up front she’s going to have to be for the advertising of the film. I mean, that just goes hand in hand.
If you cut somebody’s, roll down, and pair it back under a certain amount of minutes, you’re able to scrap them from some of the advertising. So this could be a very interesting game that they’re playing here,
trying to test whether the audience will respond negatively to her. And if they don’t, well, I guess restore all her footage. But then again, that could be even more problematic because let’s be real, wherever she goes,
it’s going to be followed with all sorts of controversy now and outrage. And I think restoring her footage, it’s not a good look, especially with all the times they backed her publicly. It just does not scream good.
But who knows that the film is more than a year away? So by then they’re just probably hoping people forget about her anyway. So we’ll see.
