Recently, Heard attended the Taormina Film Festival in Taormina, Italy for the world premiere of her new movie, in hell. While at the event, she spoke with Deadline about the project. During the conversation, Heard was asked about Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. She talked about how a superhero sequel is a completely different kind of production compared to a standalone flick in hell. Heard then shared how she feels one measure of an actor’s success could be his ability to do both types of films.
“Oh, of course,” Heard replied when asked if she was excited about it Aquaman 2. “These are very different types of projects that are two very different ends of the spectrum in my industry. There is a lot of pressure on these blockbuster franchise films, with millions and millions of dollars at stake, and the compromises are part of trying to make it the most successful thing it can be. Then on. On the other end of the spectrum is a small independent film like in hella work of art and a work of love, with nowhere near the same resources, and so there are compromises there.”
On enjoying these two genres of film, Heard added, “The best luck you can have as an actor is to be able to strike a balance between them. AquamanThis franchise and the mechanism behind it, I’m very honored, and I’m honored to be a part of that. Then there are small projects like in hell, where I am proud to have gotten to know the director and actress, and we warmed up together, bringing this story to life. There’s just something wonderful about that, and I think success is an actor who’s able to have those two things.”

In his testimony, Hurd said, “I had to fight for—I fought so hard to stay in the movie. They didn’t want to include me in the movie.” “I was given a script. Then I was given new versions of the script that removed scenes that had an effect in it, that depicted my character and another character, without giving spoilers, two characters fighting with each other. They basically took a bunch out of my role. They just removed a bunch.” .
There are varying reports about the amount of screen time Heard had on the film. In any case, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom It will be released in cinemas on December 20, 2023.
