Amber Heard Aquaman

The head of the DC Comics division of the Warner Bros. studio, Walter Hamada, said Tuesday that his production company cut the scenes of the sequel to ‘Aquaman’ in which Amber Heard appeared.

According to this director, the bad press that dragged the actress for her turbulent relationship with Johnny Depp, whom she accuses of sexist violence, was not decisive to reduce the minutes that would appear in the film, thus contradicting Heard’s version.

The statement of the director, whose recorded statement was projected on Tuesday in the trial that faces Depp and Heard for defamation, is a boost to the version of the lawyers of the former.

According to the official, the decision to cut scenes of Amber Heard was due to her “lack of chemistry” with the main actor, Jason Momoa.

Specifically, Depp accuses his ex-partner of defamation for an article she published in The Washington Post in 2018, after their divorce, in which he claimed to have suffered “domestic abuse” without mentioning him. The actor is asking for $50 million in compensation.

For his part, Heard responded with a counterclaim in which he alleges that Depp has promoted a smear campaign against him for which he would have lost papers and claims 100 million.

According to Hamada, Heard’s few appearances in the sequel to ‘Aquaman’, which is scheduled for release next year, were already decided in advance.

“The magnitude of his role was determined in the early development of the script, which was in 2018 I would say. The character’s participation in the story was more or less the same from the beginning,” explained the manager.

They even considered the possibility of replacing the actress due to the lack of “chemistry” with Momoa, the protagonist of the film, in the first installment of the saga.

“There was a concern that it took a lot of effort and that therefore it would be better if we went back to finding someone who had a better and more natural chemistry with Jason Momoa,” he testified.

The first film of ‘Aquaman’, released in 2018, was a resounding box office success that was the most important work in the career of Heard, who signed for a sequel, but then regretted his scarce appearance in the script of the same.

The trial pitting Heard and Depp against each other faces its final week before the popular jury meets to deliberate.

On Wednesday, model Kate Moss will appear as a witness at the request of Depp’s lawyers, with whom she had a romantic relationship between 1994 and 1998.
