It was reported that: "The 34-year-old has spoken to Margot Robbie about a potential role in the upcoming spin-off that's said to have an abundance of girl power."

"It's unclear if the actress has had talks with the studio just yet about it, or if she's only discussed it with the Birds of Prey star at this stage."

Heard's ex-husband, Johnny Depp, famously portrayed Captain Jack Sparrow in the films, starring in 2003's Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl to 2017's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

The actor recently announced he was stepping down from his role as Gellert Grindewald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, after he lost his libel case against The Sun last month.

The 57-year-old made the announcement on his Instagram, writing: "In light of recent events, I would like to make the following short statement.

"Firstly, I'd like to thank everybody who has gifted me with their support and loyalty. I have been humbled and moved by your many messages of love and concern, particularly over the last few days."

He continued: "I wish to let you know that I have been asked to resign by Warner Bros. from my role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and I have respected and agreed to that request."

In a well-publicised libel battle, the actor took The Sun to court after they labelled him as a "wife-beater" in an article.

"Finally, I wish to say this. The surreal judgement of the court in the U.K. will not change my fight to tell the truth and I confirm that I plan to appeal," he added.

Last month, Mr Justice Nicol ruled in favour of News Group Newspapers (NGN) who publish the tabloid.

The ruling read: "The Claimant has not succeeded in his action for libel.

"Although he has proved the necessary elements of his cause of action in libel, the Defendants have shown that what they published in the meaning which I have held the words to bear was substantially true.

"I have reached these conclusions having examined in detail the 14 incidents on which the Defendants rely as well as the overarching considerations which the Claimant submitted I should take into account...."
