Evil Dead Star Bruce Campbell Gives Funny Response To 'Petition' Calling For Him To Replace Amber Heard In Aquaman 2

Bruce Campbell has responded to an online ‘petition’ calling for him to replace Amber Heard in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.


The Ash vs Evil Dead actor, 63, last seen as Pizza Poppa Guy in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness faced pleas from fans to step in for Heard, 36, who is reeling from her court defeat in the defamation suit against ex-husband Johnny Depp, 58.

Campbell, who spent years working with director Sam Raimi on the Evil Dead trilogy, tweeted: “Send me a script”, in response to a mock-up post that announced, "Petition to replace Amber Heard in  Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom with Bruce Campbell reaches 3 million".


It is said to be a joke as the petition appears not to officially exist, and the images of it seem to have been photoshopped.


The fake petition comes after the jury in the Depp V Heard defamation trial on Wednesday (June 1) announced their verdict, finding Heard to have defamed her ex-husband, Johnny Depp in an op-ed article she wrote for the Washington Post in 2018.


Depp, who has strongly denied abusing Heard, was awarded US$15 million (S$20.6 mil) in compensatory and punitive damages. The jury also found that Depp defamed Heard on one count. The jury awarded Heard US$2 million in compensatory damages but $0 in punitive damages.


The so-called Campbell petition follows weeks and months of an anti-Heard movement, which has included online petitions for her to be removed from the next Aquaman film that have attracted millions of signatures.
A petition on change.org has now received more than four million signatories, despite her role in Aquaman 2  having already been reportedly slashed to only 10 minutes.
