Three years after Johnny Depp filed a defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard, the case has barely reached the courts to begin its trial in April 2022. It began months before the actress’s film, ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’, is released in theaters and well after the last time the two actors met in court, looking a little different than that time.
The legal problems between the two interpreters began after they signed their divorce in 2017, after the DC Comics actress filed a restraining order against the actor for domestic violence. Since then, they have been in the middle of several legal battles and the most recent is for a defamation lawsuit that Johnny Depp made to Amber Heard for the article he published in The Washington Post, ‘I spoke out against sexual violence and faced the wrath of our culture. That has to change.’

Despite the fact that said lawsuit was made in 2018, it is only in 2022 when the case has been brought to trial and this has allowed the two actors to finally be seen in public. Until now, the interpreters had remained off camera, unless it was their social networks, a recording set or a film event they had to attend.
In this reunion, Amber Heard arrived at the courthouse in Firefax, Virginia in a gray suit and a black blouse, with sober and “natural” makeup, while her hair was collected, but simply. On the other hand, she looked calm, determined and attentive to the fans who came to support her outside the courts; while she in the trial she was shown with a completely serious countenance.
The actress announced that she will stay away from social networks while the case is active, with a letter on Instagram in which she said she still has affection for the protagonist of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ However, she will not be able to avoid the cameras of the press and the court, since it is a fact that the entire process in court will be televised in the United States, all this with the development of ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ underway.
