Amber was paid 5 million dollars(as some media outlets reported) for the first installment of Aquaman and “only” 2 million for the upcoming sequel, due to current controversy(although reports say it is for other reasons). Now, with the newest reports and testimonies, we have the newest information of Amber Heard “only” earning 1 million out of the first movie, with a confirmation of the report of 2 million in earnings for Aquaman 2.
With all the newest “fuss” and drama about Amber Heard and her divorce from Johnny Depp, it’s no wonder you probably want to know even more about her projects- especially the Aquaman!
Amber Heard’s Payment for The Aquaman
Aquaman movie profited big on the Hollywood scene, earning over 1 billion dollars in its screenings all over the world.
Although earning a big profit at the box office, like starring in every other Hollywood movie, actors are paid significantly less no matter the profits, nor from screenings, nor from sold goods.
With that being said, Amber was paid 5 million dollars(as some media outlets reported) for the first installment of Aquaman and “only” 2 million for the upcoming sequel, due to current controversy. Now, with the newest reports and testimonies, we have the newest information of Amber Heard “only” earning 1 million out of the first movie, with a confirmation of the report of 2 million in earnings for the upcoming Aquaman 2 movie.
For the comparison, some reports say that Jason Momoa got 3 million dollars from the first Aquaman movie and 15 million for the second one while others claim that he had earned 15 million in the first place(from the first movie) and another 15 million for the second one, making his net worth one of the biggest on today’s Hollywood scene!
Nevertheless, considering the profits and how much other coworkers got paid, Amber was seriously underpaid, also considering the importance of her character in the movie itself
Now, due to her past and lying controversy(and unpredictable nature), it is very hard to recognize the truth. With the report of 5 million in earnings from one media resource to 1 million in earnings from Amber as the resource, it is hard to decide on the right truth… but no matter what we think, we want to know your opinion first!
Amber Heard in Aquaman
Amber starred as Mera in “Aquaman”, the princess of Xebel, Arthur Curry’s love interest, a warrior and daughter of King Nereus. She was raised by Queen Atlanna and groomed to become queen. Mera has so-called “hydrokinetic powers” which basically means she can control water and its environment. Since the ocean is truly a vast space, one can easily get lost in, she also has telekinetic powers that allow her to communicate with the rest of her aquatic brethren
She played her role well, as some critics described her “as being stiff” and “lacking chemistry with her main co-star Jason”, but “did well with the part she was given”.
Aquaman is a 2018 superhero-action movie franchise based on the DC character of the same name. It is directed by the famous movie director, James Wan, and it starred Jason Momoa as the titular character, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, and Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry.
The movie tells a story about a superhero, Arthur Curry, who was born from the true, forbidden love- a normal lightkeeper and a queen of Atlantis. He spent his whole life denying his heritage and destiny, until one day a woman from Atlantis, named Mera, comes to him to entice him to fight for his mother and his rightful kingdom… So Arthur sets on a journey for himself and Atlantis… but also mankind!
The movie was an office box success, earning over billions of dollars worldwide today!… But, although it was an office box success, it received mixed reviews from the public and the critics, criticizing it for being “too childish and Disney-like”.
