Jason Momoa is set to make his first big appearance in the DC Extended Universe as the King of Atlantis Arthur Curry, a.k.a. Aquaman in next year’s Justice League, but he’s not the only Atlantian appearing in the film.
Joining Momoa are Willem Dafoe as Aquaman’s trusted advisor Vulko and Amber Heard as his lover, Queen Mera. While we’re still waiting to see what Dafoe will look like in full costume, IGN has released the first official shot of Heard in costume, as well as some costume art.Source: Warner Bros.

It’s unclear at this time how substantial Heard’s role will be in Justice League, but she will likely have an expanded presence in the Aquaman solo film that is due out July 27, 2018. Hopefully she’ll get to see some action in that film, as we highly doubt she’ll have much to do outside of a general introduction in Snyder’s film since Justice League already has such a large cast of characters as it is.
At any rate, we like Mera’s design more than Aquaman’s so far, but we’ll have to wait to see both characters in action to know for sure.
