Amber Heard and Jason Momoa lacked natural 'chemistry' in 'Aquaman,' president of DC Films testifies

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 due to a lack of chemistry with co-star Jason Momoa.

On Tuesday, a March recorded statement from Walter Hamada, president of DC Films, a division of Warner Bros., was played to the jury in the defamation lawsuit between Heard and her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.

Hamada testified that "Aquaman" was the highest-grossing film of all time for the company.

He stated that the studio never planned to portray Heard as a co-lead in "Aquaman 2" and that Heard's role in the upcoming film "Aquaman the Lost Kingdom" had not been reduced.

"The size of the film role that he had set in the early development of the script, which would have happened in 2018, I would say.

The character's involvement in the story was there from the beginning," Hamada testified in the statement.

"From the early stages of script development, the film was built around the character of Arthur and the character Orm.

Arthur is Jason Momoa and Orm is Patrick Wilson. He was always the co-head of the film."

Depp has sued Heard for $50 million in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed, writing that the actor's claims defame him and have reportedly resulted in him losing his job.

Heard has sued Depp for $100 million, claiming that his lawyer made a statement in which he called the allegations of abuse by Depp on him a "hoax" and defame him and paid the price for his work.
