The Queen of the Deep has finally arrived! Fans get a brand new glimpse at Amber Heard as Mera in the newest television spot for James Wan’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
Aquaman 2 has mostly been marketed as a buddy-cop adventure film between Arthur Curry and his brother Orm to stop Black Manta from destroying his family. However, one key member of that family has been mostly absent from marketing: Mera. A fresh TV spot for the film features a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene of Amber Heard in the upcoming DC Universe project:
It’s no secret as to why Amber Heard has been all but absent from Aquaman 2 marketing. Even ignoring her reduced role in the film, the contentious nature of her legal battle with Johnny Depp has left Warner Bros. understandably wary about using her to market the sequel. Hopefully, those legal woes don’t impact the final splash of Atlantis in the DC Universe!
The future of the DC Universe
James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room, and a unified storyline across film, television, animation, and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods, The Flash, and Blue Beetle have all been released following the announcement of the new DC Universe, with Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom still slated to hit theaters in 2023. Will the characters from those movies make appearances in the new DCU? Only Gunn and Safran know.
