Los Angeles, July 23 (IANS) Actor Johny Depp and ex wife Amber Heard avoided having any kind of contact at Comic-Con.
The 55-year-old actor was a surprise guest at Warner Bros.’ Comic-Con Hall H panel, where he promoted his new movie, “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”, by dressing up as the titular villain to deliver an in-character speech.
Afterwards, the 32-year-old actress appeared at a Warner Bros. panel to support the upcoming Aquaman film, though the two were not seen crossing paths at the event, reports people.com.
While both of their panels occurred in the same room, there was at least an hour separating their appearances.
Depp’s casting in the “Fantastic Beasts” sequel caused some controversy when it was first announced, as fans questioned why domestic violence allegations made against Depp by Heard didn’t preclude him from being involved with the project.
Heard had asked for a domestic violence restraining order against Depp just a week after she filed to end their 15-month marriage in May 2016, claiming the actor had been abusive on several occasions, including one incident that she claimed left her in fear for her life.
Depp and Heard settled their divorce in January 2017 – with Depp paying Heard a $7 million settlement (all of which she vowed to donate to charity).
