Christopher Reeve didn't have top billing in Superman or Michael Keaton in Batman, IIRC, so it's not unprecedented for the lesser-known actor playing the lead character to get lower billing to a better known actor playing what is nominally a supporting character.
Yes, and it wasn't okay then and it isn't okay now.
It's the SGA rules, though. Unless Depp takes no billing, he has to be first.
Do you mean SAG, Screen Actor's Guild? I don't think they have any rules about billing beyond actors HAVE to be billed.

Top billing is the agent's job... Where an actor is billed is something that is negotiated.
