According to sources who spoke to Gravity and Pages in the studio’s orbit VarietyThe studios didn’t fire Amber Heard after the actress’ ex-boyfriend, Elon Musk, sent a particularly threatening letter to the production company promising to “burn everything down” if his lawyer didn’t appear in the second installment.
Jason Momoa’s attitude
During the defamation trial between Amber Heard and her ex-husband Johnny Depp, notes from the actress’ sessions with her therapist were revealed. She noted that Jason Momoa arrived on set drunk, had bad taste in dressing like Johnny Depp, and even James Wan treated her “like an outcast” due to his former legal troubles. DC representatives have flatly denied the allegations, emphasizing the professional and respectful approach of both Momoa and Wan.
