In another possible setback for Amber Heard, the biggest movie on her slate — the Aquaman sequel— might hit theaters later than expected.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is currently scheduled for release on March 17, 2023. However, Warner Bros. Discovery’s recent earnings call sparked speculation that its release date may get bumped, per The Hollywood Reporter.

It’s presently unclear why the film faces postponement. But it’s probably not due to Amber Heard headlines, as Warner might also delay Shazam! Fury of the Gods.

The news comes just a few days after TMZ relayed that Amber Heard recently sold her Southern California home. Ensuing speculation suggested she might need the money to pay for her ongoing legal battles with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

TMZ reported that Amber Heard sold the desert home in Yucca Valley, California, for $1.05 million — twice what she paid for it.

2022: A Horrible Year For Amber Heard

In June, a jury found Heard guilty of defamation against Depp. The decision resulted in a $10.3 million award for Amber Heard’s ex-husband. With a verdict additionally awarding Heard compensatory damages of $2 million, she is on the hook for $8.3 million.

Heard’s attorneys claim she can’t afford to pay that amount.

Last month, Heard and her legal team filed an appeal of the jury’s decision.

A spokesperson for Amber Heard told news and media outlets that they believe they have adequate grounds for appeal.

“We believe the court made errors that prevented a just and fair verdict consistent with the First Amendment,” they said. “We are therefore appealing the verdict. While we realize today’s filing will ignite the Twitter bonfires, there are steps we need to take to ensure both fairness and justice.”

Heard’s attorney, Elaine Bredehoft, publicly mentioned numerous perceived errors during the case proceedings. For example, they believe the jury was improperly vetted and another is that they were not properly sequestered.
