Heard’s spokesperson called Just Jared’s report “false” in an email to Insider.

“The rumor mill continues as it has since day one – inaccurate, insensitive and slightly insane,” a spokesperson for Heard told Insider.

Representatives of Warner Bros. did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

In the franchise, Heard plays Aquaman’s love interest, Mera. Heard’s character was first introduced in the 2017 film “Justice League” before becoming a protagonist in 2018’s “Aquaman” alongside star actor Jason Momoa.

Of her role in the sequel, Heard added, “They basically took a bunch out of my role. They just took out a bunch.”
