Amber Heard is the mermaid queen we need
Ariel's got nothing on Queen Mera
Here's your first look at Amber Heard as Mera, the queen of Atlantis and Aquaman's wife in the upcoming Aquaman film. Director James Wan who helms the DC Comics film posted the photo on his Twitter account last night. Principal photography for the film has just begun in Australia.
Her new costume, a scaly skin-tight number in a wicked shade of seaweed green, is both witchy and elegant – and to the delight of many Aquaman fans, does justice to the comic books.
Amber also shared a similar photo of herself in costume, looking absolutely ready to kick butt.
Mera's green suit is a little different from what she wears in the first-look photo of her character in the upcoming Justice League film; director Zack Snyder shared said photo in October last year.

These first few photos are hopefully just the start of more to come before we finally see Mera in Justice League film, out in cinemas on 16 November, before Aquaman swims onto silver screens in December 2018.
