Author: Ambily S / Oct 13, 2023

In a surprising twist surrounding the upcoming release of “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” recent reports suggest that Elon Musk played a pivotal role in ensuring Amber Heard retained her position as Mera. The drama unfolded against the backdrop of Jason Momoa’s alleged on-set behavior and rumors of Heard’s scenes being cut.

Documents from the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation trial surfaced, shedding light on a tumultuous “Aquaman” set. Notes from Heard’s therapist, Dr. Dawn Hughes, described a hostile environment, attributing Jason Momoa’s alleged intoxication and attempts to have Heard removed from the role to the chaos.

While Momoa’s representative declined to comment, a DC spokesperson defended Momoa’s professionalism. However, the released therapy notes also portrayed Heard feeling unsupported by the film’s director, James Wan, amidst her legal battles.

Surprisingly, sources claim that Heard was on the verge of being fired after the 2018 release of “Aquaman.” Allegedly, Warner Bros. and Wan decided to drop her due to perceived chemistry issues with Momoa. Yet, the decision was forestalled by an unexpected player – Elon Musk.

Heard’s former boyfriend reportedly sent a strongly worded letter through his litigator, threatening dire consequences if Warner Bros. proceeded with firing her. The studio, facing Musk’s uncompromising stance, opted to retain Heard for the sequel.

As the behind-the-scenes battles unfolded, the film’s release date draws near, leaving fans and industry insiders anticipating the impact of this off-screen drama on the on-screen chemistry of “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.” With Musk’s interference adding a layer of intrigue, the movie’s December 22 release promises to be more than just a cinematic spectacle
