In recent news, it has been announced that Amber Heard will be returning as Mera in the highly anticipated sequel, “Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom.” This news has garnered mixed reactions from fans, as Heard has been a controversial figure in recent years due to her ongoing legal battles with her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.
Despite the controversy, director James Wan has stated that he is excited to have Heard return to the role of Mera. In a statement, Wan said, “I’m super excited about the amount of fan love and the amount of fan anticipation that ‘Aquaman 2’ has garnered. And so, I’m excited to bring Amber back, who did an amazing job as Mera in the first film.”
Heard’s role as Mera in the first “Aquaman” film was met with mixed reviews, with some fans praising her performance and others criticizing her accent and portrayal of the character. However, it’s worth noting that the controversy surrounding Heard at the time may have also played a role in the reception of her performance.
Despite the backlash, Amber Heard has continued to defend her role as Mera, stating that she is excited to bring the character to life once again in the upcoming sequel. In a recent interview, Amber Heard stated, “I’m excited to get back into that world and bring Mera back to life. I had so much fun playing her in the first film, and I can’t wait to see where her story goes in the sequel.”
Lost Kingdom underwent another release date shakeup when in August 2022 the date was pushed backward to December 2023.
