It has long been rumored that Aquaman's better half, Mera, will make an appearance in 2017's Justice League - Part 1 film. But with that rumor being so old and so much attention being focused on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad in anticipation of next week's secial look on CW, there's not been much more focused on the rumor...
It would seem that Warner Bros. and DC have found an actress who is "in talks" to be joining the DC extended universe in Justice League - Part 1 - as the rumor was stated above - and then to follow up the role in 2018's Aquaman movie starring Jason Momoa.
There's not been many actresses rumored for the role so the announcement is quite a surprise. But the role of Mera is in negotions to go to none other than Amber Heard (Magic Mike XXL).
The news come from Variety which isn't just some podunk website with a terrible track record of found-less assumptions.
As far as my opinion goes, I can't say that I really have one. I'm familiar with the actress but I've only ever seen her in two movies (Zombieland and Pineapple Express) and the only reason that I know I've seen her in those movies is because I looked at her filmography. So I don't feel like I know her acting well enough to judge accurately.
But I will say that as far as all the castings have been going in the DC Extended Universe: I'll keep an open mind.
What do you think of the casting of Amber Heard for Mera? Do you agree with the casting or not? If not, who would you think could play the role better? Sound off in the comments section below!
