Amber Heard and Jason Momoa lacked chemistry in ‘Aquaman’

According to Walter Hamada, president of DC Films at Warner Bros., the lack of on-screen chemistry between Amber Heard and Jason Momoa led to the reduction of Heard’s role in the “Aquaman” sequel.

When Heard’s part in the film was cut short, her team blamed the bad press surrounding the defamation lawsuit between her and ex-husband Johnny Depp. However, Hamada testified in a video statement that there were concerns about chemistry between the costars after the wrap of the first film, which hit theaters in 2018.

“I think, editorially, they were able to make that relationship work in the first film, but there was a concern that it took a lot of effort to get there,” Hamada said.

From there, Hamada testifies that the film is likely to lead to Heard re-watching in order to find someone who has on-screen chemistry with Momoa.

While audiences can get to see a spark between the pair from the first film, Hamada carried on with the magic of the films. “This is what makes a movie star a movie star. You know it when you see it. And the chemistry was not there,” Hamada testified.

Heard’s agent Jessica Kovacevic testified this week and claimed, initially, everyone was very pleased with Heard’s performance and that she tested very well for the film. When he got word that Heard’s share would be reduced due to chemistry, the only logical conclusion was that the constant tweets and bad publicity in the defamation case were the problem. His agent also said that Heard lost a role in a movie for Amazon that was in the works.

Depp has sued Hurd for defamation in a December 2018 op-ed describing himself in The Washington Post as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” His lawyers say the article defames him, although his name was never mentioned in it.

Earlier today, Heard’s team rested his case. Also today, a motion to dismiss the $100 million counterclaim filed against Depp was rejected.

Closing arguments are expected on Friday.
