It’s official! Amber Heard, who was reported as being in negotiations in January, will be heading to the throne of Atlantis next year. Heard has been cast as Mera, queen of Atlantis and Aquaman’s wife.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Heard confirmed her role while discussing her costume for the upcoming film Justice League Part One, a “half suit of armor, half scales” ensemble that’s still in the process of being put together.
In addition to being in the first Justice League movie, Heard will also appear in the standalone Aquaman movie opposite Jason Mamoa, who plays the sea king himself.
Justice League Part One is slated to come out on November 17, 2017, with the solo Aquaman movie coming out a year later on July 27, 2018.
