So Amber Heard, Aquaman’s Mera, or the girl formerly married to Johnny Depp, who accused him of beating her and is now rumored to be dating Elon Musk, a multi-billionaire playboy (who’s not Batman), CEO of Space X and Tesla and a few others… sorry, was turning into TMZ for a second. Sorry, let’s start over. Heard, who has been cast as Queen Mera in the DCEU, opposite Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa, took to her personal Instagram account to post a short training video of her fighting some stunt guys in preparation for the Aquaman film.
As you can clearly see by the caption she included, this is for the upcoming Aquaman, due out in 2018. While Heard is also featured in this year’s Justice League, her scenes are finished and we’re not even sure how long she’s in the movie. Either way, it looks like Queen Mera is going to be more than a pretty face.
In the comics, Mera is the wife of Aquaman, Arthur Curry, but also stands by his side and fights with him to defend Atlantis against villains like Black Manta, the villain of the film.
Aquaman is due out in 2018 and is directed by James Wan and stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Temuera Morrison and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta.
