The president DC Films Walter Hamada toldwhat Warner Bros. thought to replace Amber Heard to another actress Aquaman 2.
Hamada appeared as one of the witnesses at the trial between Heard and Johnny Depp. In the past, the artist stated that she practically lost her job due to the scandal around this case. In addition, for allegedly the same reasons, her role in the continuation of the film comic was cut to 10 minutes of screen time.
However, Hamada noted that the difficulties in working with Heard on the Aquaman sequel had nothing to do with the trial. The reason was that between Heard and the leading man Jason Momoa there was practically no “chemistry” on the screen.
Therefore, the studio was thinking about a potential replacement for the party of the heroine Measuresafter spending several weeks on it. According to another witnesssuch undertakings were prevented by Momoa himself and the director James Wan.
Hamada added that in the first picture, the lack of a certain percentage of that same “chemistry” was made up for with the help of editing and other tricks of “movie magic” – like music. At the same time, as it was known earlier, the actress was paid $1 million for the first film, and $2 million for the sequel, which corresponded to the terms of her original contract.
Heard’s side insisted that she could have gotten herself a bigger fee, but Hamada revealed that DC Films is now fundamentally not doing automatic renegotiation of sequels in this vein.
In addition, according to him, the role of Heard has not changed since 2018, when to continue the story Arthur Curry developed the plot. The sequel will likely focus on the relationship between Arthur and his half-brother. Orma (Patrick Wilson).
The release of the tape is scheduled for March 17, 2023.
