Magic Mike XXL star and overall bomb-shell Amber Heard has officially confirmed her role in DC's Cinematic Universe. Beginning in Justice League Part 1 Heard will play Mera, who if you didn't know, is the queen of Atlantis and Aquaman's wife.
Mera meets Aquaman when the evil criminal Leron seizes her kingdom and Aquaman vows to save it. After being imprisoned and requiring the help of the water spirit The Quisp to escape, Mera and Aquaman manage to save Mera's kingdom. In the end, Mera actually decides to step down from her kingdom and join Aquaman in Atlantis and become queen.
Amber will make her first appearance as the Queen of Atlantis in the first Justice League film and will reprise her role in Aquaman starring Jason Mamoa. Heard even touched on her costume and how strange it will be.
I'm wearing like a half-suit of armor, half scales. It's strange. But we're in the process of building it now. It's coming along.
Justice League Part 1 is scheduled for a November release next year and stars Batfleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot. While Aquaman is set to be released in July of 2018, but rumor has it, fans will get a brief look at Aquaman in Batman v. Superman this year.
In the meantime Heard fans like myself will be patiently waiting to see the beautiful actress take on the strong role of Mera in Justice League Part 1.
