Justice League will not only the biggest event in the DCEU yet, it will also serve as a jumping off point for the various superheroes introduced in it. One of them will be Aquaman (#JasonMomoa). The King of Atlantis is finally getting his very first live-action solo adventure. Details on it have been scarce, but it's looking quite exciting from what we've heard about it.
One of its most exciting aspects is the relationship between Aquaman and Mera (#AmberHeard). The two characters are one of the strongest couples in comic books, which makes the fact that we haven't seen their live-action versions together so far in promotional images quite curious. Fortunately, things just changed...
We Finally Have Our First Look At Jason Momoa's Aquaman And Amber Heard's Mera Together
#JamesWan, Jason Momoa and Amber Heard are currently hard at work with Aquaman undergoing filming. The Twitter page Amber Heard Italia shared an image from set, which shows Mera (in her trademark costume) and Aquaman together. Check it out:
Aside from finally seeing #Mera and Aquaman together for the first time, the image shows us very little in terms of the film's plot. But that doesn't mean there aren't a few details to pick up from it.
First of all, don't expect this reunion to be bursting at the seams with mutual love from the two heroes. During an interview with Bustle last year, James Wan discussed Aquaman and Mera's relationship. He revealed the two powerhouses would not be on the best of terms at the beginning of the film:
"It starts off initially with them not quite clicking with each other. But then as the story progresses as they learn to try and work together, they get closer and closer. I think those stories are always such a great place for a filmmaker like myself to have fun with my actors."
So they'll have some issues to work through throughout the story. Secondly, the picture was taken in a dock in the Gold Coast of Australia. James Wan and Amber Heard recently gave us our first look at the actress as Mera.
Going by the background of these three pictures, it looks like they're from the same scene. As far as where it takes place, last week, it was revealed Aquaman was shooting in the Gold Coast, which doubled as Arthur Curry's hometown, Amnesty Bay. #Aquaman and Mera being in the hero's hometown raises an interesting question: What are they doing there? Is it an indication of Curry going back to living a normal life after saving the world from Apokolips? Or is there a different motive behind their visit?
Unfortunately, with so little information currently at our disposal we'll have to wait for more info on the movie or even a trailer to get an idea of what's going on with the future pair of spouses.
What do you think of our first picture of Mera and Aquaman together? Let me know in the comments!
