Aquaman 2 Drama Unveiled: Jason Momoa’s Alleged On-Set Incident, Amber Heard’s Scenes Axed, Elon Musk’s Letter to WB, and Latest Updates

Warner Bros. found itself in a storm of controversy as the trailer for its highly anticipated film, “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” hit screens. Simultaneously, embarrassing documents from the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation trial emerged on Reddit, creating a new set of headaches for the studio.

Fans of Depp reportedly funded the release of documents from Heard’s therapist, Dr. Dawn Hughes, shedding light on a tense atmosphere on the set of “Aquaman.” According to the notes, Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, allegedly appeared drunk on set, imitating Depp and pushing for Heard’s removal from her role as Mera, the aquatic superhero. The claims, however, were refuted by a DC spokesperson and insiders who worked on the set, stating that Momoa conducted himself professionally.

The therapy notes also revealed Heard’s feelings of being unsupported by the film’s director, James Wan, and her sense of isolation due to her legal battle with Depp. Despite the challenges, the studio initially decided to remove Heard from the sequel due to perceived lack of chemistry with Momoa, but Elon Musk’s intervention led to her reinstatement, causing a stir behind the scenes.

Apart from the personal drama, “Aquaman 2” faced testing challenges. The sequel initially tested poorly, leading to reshoots and a significant overhaul. The movie’s fate seems uncertain amidst the wider changes in the DC universe. Established stars from Zack Snyder’s era, including Momoa, are not reprising their roles in the new DC universe, adding to the franchise’s uncertainties.

As the December 20 release date for “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” approaches, Warner Bros. faces mounting challenges. The ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike has complicated promotional efforts, while behind-the-scenes conflicts and contentions surrounding the film’s production continue to overshadow its release. Despite these challenges, early tracking suggests strong audience interest, leaving the film’s future at the box office uncertain but hopeful.

In the ever-evolving landscape of DC movies, “Aquaman 2” stands as a testament to the complexities faced by studios, reminding audiences that even amidst turmoil, the right film at the right time can still capture hearts and triumph at the box office.
