Depp V Heard: Amber Heard and Jason Momoa Lacked On-Screen Chemistry On Aquaman Set, So Says DC Films Exec Walter Hamada

At this point, it’s really become a ‘he said, she said,’ ordeal, hasn’t it? One movie exec says one of the reasons why Amber Heard’s role was significantly reduced in the upcoming Aquaman sequel is because she and her co-star Jason Momaoa lacked on-screen chemistry. Here’s what you need to know.

The head of DC Films, which produced Aquaman, testified that the creative team had concerns about Amber Heard’s role in the film’s sequel over a lack of chemistry with her co-star.

Walter Hamada, President of DC Films, suggested that the film’s producers decided to reduce Heard’s role simply because things just weren’t working out for her and Momoa in front of the cameras.

“The size of the role of the film that she has was determined in the early development of the script, which would have happened in 2018 I would say. The character’s involvement in the story was sort of what it was from the beginning,” Hamada testified in the deposition. “From the early stages of development of the script, the movie was built around the character of Arthur and the character Orm. Arthur being Jason Momoa and Orm being Patrick Wilson. They were always the co-leads of the movie.”

Hamada testified that “Aquaman” was the highest grossing film ever for the company. He said the studio never planned to portray Heard as a co-lead in “Aquaman 2” and that Heard’s role was not reduced in the forthcoming film, titled “Aquaman the Lost Kingdom.”

As many fans know by now, Johnny Depp has filed a defamation suit against Heard over a column she wrote for the Washington Post in December 2018 in which she described herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” But Heard says that their marriage was so bad that she had no choice but to leave. She said in the final weeks of their marriage his sobriety completely broke down and he began “talking to people who weren’t in the room. it was terrifying.”
