Although fans of DC Films would usually rejoice over a photo teasing the first day of filming on “Aquaman 2,” moviegoers are furious that Amber Heard is still on the cast amid ongoing legal battles with her ex-husband Johnny Depp.

On Monday, James Wan, the director of “Aquaman 2,” shared a photo from the set of the film. The picture featured a clapperboard on the floor of what appeared to be an ice cave. “Day One. #aquaman2,” Wan captured the photo.

However, fans took to Twitter to boycott the movie and slam the studio for allowing the actress to remain on the cast after she previously admitted to hitting Depp, despite her allegations that he was abusive during their marriage.

“I couldn’t care less that ‘Aquaman 2’ has started filming, and I won’t care until they fire Amber Heard,” one post read.

Another user appeared upset that other actors were removed from DC Films while the studio has allowed Heard to remain on the “Aquaman 2” cast.

“So lemme get this straight..... WB/DC fired Ray Fisher for speaking out about the abuse and toxicity he endured, they’re seemingly replacing [Henry] Cavill, but they’re keeping the abuser Amber Heard and worst actress alive in ‘Aquaman 2’??” the post read.

In March, Depp lost his U.K. appeal in the libel case against a tabloid that labeled him a “wife-beater.” The following month, Heard’s legal team filed a supplemental plea asking for a judge to dismiss his U.S. defamation suit against his ex-wife.

“Giving full effect to the UK Judgments necessitates a finding that statements in the op-ed published in the Washington Post are true – Mr. Depp committed domestic violence against Ms. Heard on many occasions, causing her to fear for her life,” reads the plea from Heard’s attorneys.

“Therefore, as a matter of law, Depp cannot prevail on any of his claims, and Depp’s Complaint against Ms. Heard should be dismissed in its entirety.”

Depp’s $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard is expected to begin next year.
