There has been a lot of talk about Amber Heard being replaced in Aquaman 2 since a while now. Heard's personal life controversy involving the defamation case with ex-husband Johnny Depp seems to be causing trouble for the actress professionally. If recent reports are to go by, Heard's role in DC's Aquaman sequel may be in trouble. After starring in the first film as Mera alongside Jason Momoa, fans have been calling for the actress' removal from the film ever since allegations of abuse caused by her towards ex-husband Johnny Depp have hit the news.

Several reports also claimed that Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke was in talks for this role. Given Clarke and Jason Momoa's closeness ever since the duo worked on GOT together, there were reports of her casting. Although a recent fan art showed how Gossip Girl fame Blake Lively too would be a great choice for this role and if anyone is unconvinced, the fan art sure shows how gorgeous she would look in that role. A petition exists asking the makers to replace Heard with Emilia Clarke in the film but it seems after seeing this Blake Lively fan art, there could be a new petition being filed soon.
