Bombshell new reports emerging from the Aquaman set have claimed that Jason Momoa tried to get Amber Heard fired and drunkenly dressed up as Johnny Depp.

As reported by Variety, on the same day that the trailer for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom dropped, documents from the defamation trial between Heard and Depp were obtained by Redditors who subsequently posted them online.

The notes from Heard's therapist, Dr. Dawn Hughes, outlined a "hostile" working environment on the movie set furthered by claims of Momoa's alleged behavior.

According to the documents, the Games of Thrones star allegedly turned up to set in a drunken state dressed up as Depp and attempted to get his co-star fired.

Watch the trailer for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom below:

Heard, who plays Mera in the movie, was nearly fired for reasons unrelated to her high-profile defamation case involving Depp.

Sources told Variety that the star nearly lost her role due to her lack of chemistry with her co-star - though another source rubbished this claim.

A spokesperson for M0moa has pushed back on Heard's claims, as one said, cited by Variety: "Jason Momoa conducted himself in a professional manner at all times on the set of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom."

A second added: "Jason works his a** off, likes to have a beer once in a while like everyone, but doesn’t show up drunk to set, he isn’t dressing like Johnny Depp. He has always dressed in that bohemian style."

The notes also claim that James Wan, the director, treated Heard differently due to her trial with her former husband.

Hughes' notes read: "He raised his voice @ me — 'I can’t even post about Aquaman' — made it like it was my fault – I said 'I’m sorry.'"

A spokesperson for DC said about the claims: "James is known for treating members of his cast and crew with the utmost respect and for fostering a positive, collaborative environment on set — the Aquaman films were no exception."

Heard was ultimately not fired from the movie, reportedly due to her relationship with Elon Musk.

The report claims that Musk got one of his lawyers to send a "scorched-earth letter to Warner Bros. threatening to burn the house down."

The email clearly did the job as the studio relented on their previous position and allowed Heard to continue with the movie - although her appearance during the trailer is very fleeting so how much screen time she has is yet to be seen.

The movie releases worldwide on December 20 and given that it has a budget of $215 million, the studio is hoping it lives up to the $1.1 billion that its predecessor made.
