Walter Hamada, head of Warner Bros.’s DC unit, was the first witness called by Johnny Depp to the court to begin counter-claiming Amber Heard. Here, he said, the studio delayed “whether or not” using Amber Heard as Mera, Aquaman’s love interest.

Hamada said, “This couple really doesn’t have a connection. Basically, in the first movie, their feelings can be accepted by the audience, but it’s very disturbing in the sequel.”

That bond was created during post-production, says Hamada. He said, it is not uncommon for the lead couple to lack cohesion.

Amber Heard was countered

Amber Heard was paid $1 million for the first Aquaman and $2 million for the sequel. That salary was in line with her original contract, but Heard’s rep testified that she could have renegotiated for more money due to the global success of her first film.

However, Hamada testified that, under his leadership at DC Films, he would not take a renegotiated position for sequels.

“A big part of our philosophy is to keep the salaries of their original contract roles,” he said.

Hamada said that Aquaman 2 was conceived as a comedy about the brotherhood between Momoa and Patrick Wilson, who plays King Orm, Aquaman’s half-brother.

Amber Heard has alleged that her role has been “significantly devalued” over time, but Hamada testified that its value has remained the same since the film was first developed in 2018.
