Amber Heard has finally confirmed her role as Mera in “Aquaman” and “Justice League” and even gave fans a little taste of what her costume will look like.
“It’s interesting,” Heard told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m wearing, like, half suit of armor, half scales. It’s strange. But we’re in the process of building it now. It’s coming along.”
In January, TheWrap reported that Heard was in talks to star in Warner Bros.’ upcoming “Aquaman” opposite Jason Momoa. She would play the female lead of Mera, Aquaman’s love interest and eventual queen of Atlantis. The character first appeared in 1963 and has the power to control water.
Heard will first star in “Justice League” as Momoa’s love interest and then reprise her role in “Aquaman.”
“Justice League Part One” is due in theaters next year, and is directed by Zack Snyder. It stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Momoa as Aquaman.
“Aquaman” will be directed by James Wan, who helmed “Furious 7,” and is looking at a July 27, 2018 release.
