The executive producer of “Aquaman,” DC Films, testified that the creative team was concerned about Amber Heard’s involvement in the sequel due to a lack of chemistry with co-star Jason Momoa.

On Tuesday, a March recorded deposition of Walter Hamada, President of DC Films, which is a division of Warner Bros., was played for the jury in the defamation trial between Heard and her ex-husband, Johnny Depp. 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.”

“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.”

Depp has sued Heard for $50 million, claiming that an op-ed she penned in the Washington Post in 2018 defamed him and caused him to lose business. Heard has countersued Depp for $100 million, claiming that his attorney’s statements calling her allegations of Depp’s abuse a “hoax” defamed her and cost her business.

Heard testified that she believes her position in “Aquaman 2” was reduced and that she had to battle to be included in the film, which is currently in post-production and set to release in 2023. (Both CNN and Warner Bros. Discovery are owned by Warner Bros.)

However, Hamada testified in his deposition that there was talk about Heard’s role in a sequel after the production of “Aquaman.”

“I think editorially they were able to make that relationship work in the first movie but there was a concern that it took a lot of effort to get there and would we be better off recasting, finding someone who had better, more natural chemistry with Jason Momoa and move forward in that way,” Hamada testified.
