'Aquaman': James Wan Shares Photo of Amber Heard as Mera
Mera has finally emerged from the sea.
In a new shot shared on Thursday by Aquaman director James Wan, star Amber Heard dons the green, algae-esque outfit of the titular hero's love interest, Mera. This new costume differs in a few ways from Mera's Justice League look.
"Lady MERA swept in from the sea. First day with the exquisite Amber Heard," the helmer captioned the photo in a tweet.
Sporting a skintight outfit and long, sea-soaked red hair, Heard's character design looks like it was ripped straight from the pages of the comic book. The actress will star alongside Jason Momoa in the upcoming stand-alone feature in the DC Extended Universe.
Heard's near-perfect comic translation has fans speculating whether Momoa will don the infamous green-and-yellow tights of his own character. So far, Mamoa's current bearded, tattooed and shirtless Aquaman is a far cry from the clean-cut, blonde-haired version seen in the comics.
Earlier, Heard shared a look at herself sitting in the makeup chair on day one of shooting, captioning the photo, "Over a year of prep, 6 months of training, & countless hrs of denying myself pleasure, aka donuts, has led to this moment."
And a few hours after Wan shared his photo, Heard shared another look at Mera.
For costume comparison's sake, here's the first photo of Heard on the set of Aquaman, followed by a pic on the Justice League set:
