Amber Heard in Talks to Play Mera, Queen of Atlantis in Justice League

Shares

Amber Heard (Zombieland, The Danish Girl) according to The Hollywood Reporter is in talks with Warner Bros. to play Mera, The Queen of Atlantis in the DC Extended Universe, a role that if she accepts will start in Justice League: Part 1.

The character of Mera is being said to first appear in Justice League, which is set to begin filming in April of 2016, for an extensive shoot.

Aquaman, which is being directed by James Wan and written by David Leslie Johnson is set to be released shortly after Justice League: Part 1, so this would certainly mean Amber Heard will be shooting back to back and depending on her role in the Justice League films could be shooting two films at once.

Mera, is the Wife of Arthur Curry/Aquaman, the King of Atlantis, making her Queen of Atlantis and has super strength, telepathy and has even held onto a Red Lantern ring. She is known to have a temper when provoked and is often showed to be just as physically capable of holding her own.

FIRST APPEARANCE: Aquaman #1 (September 1963)

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    Could the JL movie be a Throne of Atlantis adaptation? It would explain Mera’s presence…

    • IronBatMaidenMan

      That would be awesome.

    Please tell me this is not true! *smdh*

    • Why not?

      • Barbara White

        You’re joking right? I see what they’re doing. This is not the small screen, not Game of Thrones, and Amber is NOT Emilia Clarke. It’s ridiculous and it makes me sad. I cannot imagine them as a couple. Spare me!

        • I’m not joking, don’t see an issue with the possible casting, more so after seeing Amber in The Danish Girl. Also we won’t know how they’ll look or be like as a couple until we see them on screen.

          • Barbara White

            I just hope it’s not true. I actually thought they would cast a person of color but I guess it’s not going to happen.

  • Victor Stone

    2017? I am sure they will film JL I this year.

    • Red Queen

      Yes, but it will come out in 2017.

          Oh, OK. ๐Ÿ™‚
