Due to her dirty laundry with Johnny Depp being made public, there’s a movement out there to get Amber Heard removed from her upcoming projects. It ain’t exactly taking off, though, and Heard is actually busier than ever. Besides her return for Aquaman 2, Heard also has the Stephen King series The Stand, and she’s doing reshoots as Mera for Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Heard spoke with Comicbook.com about the thing that makes her excited to be part of The Stand and Justice League. Turns out the reason is the same, and it has to do with the directors being a couple of super nerds…
“I’m super excited about it. We just wrapped on reshoots and I just love nerds. I fucking love nerds, excuse my language. He’s a perfect example, Zack [Snyder] is a perfect example of a nerd. You know, I got into this project on ‘The Stand’ because of another true, die-hard nerd, which is Josh Boone, who connected all of us on this project as he was adapting the book for Stephen [King}. And I think it’s just a good rule of thumb to follow, especially in this genre which I love. It’s like follow the nerd, the nerd passion is where you want to be.”
Towel yourselves off, guys. Just because Heard loves nerd filmmakers, doesn’t mean she wants to play Dungeons & Dragons with you. But if I ever get a chance to interview her I’ll be sure to ask.
Heard will be seen in The Stand which debuts this week, and Zack Snyder’s Justice League in 2021.
