This week, Furious 7 helmer Wan posted the pic of the stunning actress and current Elon Musk squeeze as Mera, the queen of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. The photo, which both Heard and Wan revealed on Twitter, features Heard in the green-scaled jumpsuit that her comic book character typically wears.
“Lady MERA swept in from the sea,” wrote Wan in the caption. “First day with the exquisite Amber Heard.”
Heard, meanwhile simply said, “Meet Mera.”
Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as the title character. The cast also includes Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Dolph Lundgren (!) and Patrick Wilson.
Digital Trends has even more geeked-out details on who’s playing who, and where the movie is filming:
Along with Momoa as the film’s titular hero and Heard as Mera, the cast of Aquaman also includes Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman (The Hours) as Aquaman’s mother, Temuera Morrison (Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones) as Aquaman’s father, Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables) as King Nereus, Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring) as Aquaman’s half-brother, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (The Get Down) as the villain Black Manta, and Willem Dafoe (Platoon) as Vulko.
The movie is currently filming in the Gold Coast region of Queensland, Australia, and is expected to continue filming in Newfoundland, Sicily, and Tunisia, in addition to studio locations.
Aquaman is currently scheduled to hit theaters December 21, 2018.
