The highly anticipated JUSTICE LEAGUE and AQUAMAN features from DC Comics may have found its Queen Mera with actress Amber Heard in early talks to star in the role. In the comics, Mera is the love interest and eventual wife of the superhero Aquaman.
If she signs on, Heard would appear in both Justice League as well as Aquaman opposite Jason Momoa as the titular hero. James Wan is currently attached to direct the latter film. Heard joins a star-studded ensemble in League that already includes Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, and Ezra Miller with Zach Snyder directing.
Heard was most recently seen in last year’s Magic Mike XXL and The Danish Girl. She will next be seen in London Fields opposite Cara Delevingne, Billy bob Thornton, and Jamie Alexander.
She is repped by WME.
