Amidst ongoing controversies and speculations about her role, Amber Heard is set to reprise her character as Mera in the upcoming DCEU film, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The actress had been embroiled in a highly publicized legal battle with her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, which led to a defamation suit that she ultimately lost. The uncertainty surrounding her involvement in the movie had fans wondering if she would still be part of the cast. Various rumors suggested reduced screen time or even a recasting.

A Glimpse of Mera’s New Look

While the details of her role in the film remain undisclosed, fans recently received a sneak peek at Amber Heard’s Mera through official merchandise. Notably, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has taken an unconventional marketing approach, with the shortest time gap between the release of a film’s first trailer and its theatrical debut in the DCEU.

Mera’s Updated Suit

Twitter user @TaurooAldebaran shared images of new toys from the movie that showcase Mera’s updated suit. The suit is predominantly blue, featuring new silver accents on her forearms. This design differs from her outfit in the first film, where color variations adorned the “scales” on her attire. However, it’s essential to consider that the simplified styling of the toy may account for this difference.

Aquaman’s New Attire

The merchandise also provides a glimpse of Aquaman‘s attire in the sequel. Jason Momoa’s character, Arthur, will be seen in his classic colors, but he will also sport an all-black outfit at some point during The Lost Kingdom. Another toy previously discovered in August hinted at an action sequence between Aquaman and Black Manta.

Final DCEU Film Before Reboot

“Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” is poised to become the last DCEU film before James Gunn’s DCU reboot takes center stage. This transition comes after several underwhelming outings for DC Studios, including The Flash, which experienced significant commercial disappointment. The hesitation in promoting Aquaman 2 may stem from a desire to distance Warner Bros. from the remaining DCEU films, especially given the controversies surrounding Amber Heard.

The Uncertain Future of Amber Heard’s Mera

As the movie’s release date approaches, fans are left wondering about the extent of Amber Heard‘s role in the film. Will Mera play a pivotal part in the storyline, or will her appearances be limited? Rumors even suggest that Jason Momoa himself may be eager to move on from the franchise due to the film’s rumored quality.

While many hope for a successful sequel, the prevailing sentiment hints at uncertainty and skepticism. Whether Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom can defy expectations and become a surprise hit remains to be seen.

The film is scheduled for release on December 20, leaving fans eagerly anticipating its arrival while navigating a sea of questions and concerns.
