When it was announced way back in March that Amber Heard was cast as Aquaman’s wife Mera in 2017’s Justice League film and 2018’s Aquaman (starring Jason Momoa), it sounded like they weren’t bringing much glamour to the costume. Amber described Mera’s costume as being “half suit of armor, half scales.” Well, as you can see by that picture that was released today, Amber’s description was pretty accurate.
The first picture of Amber Heard as Mera was taken by Justice League director Zack Snyder. Amber was right about working a half armor, half scales look. It’s very Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman going to a Paradise Island Halloween party in a homemade Poison Ivy costume. Amber forgot to mention the part about that sad red shake-and-go Lindsay Lohan wig. I know Mera lives in the sea and her hair is exposed to water almost 24-hours a day, but that’s no excuse for hair like that. Amber’s Mera needs to call up Ariel and ask where she buys her leave-in treatments, or at the very least, how to use a dinglehopper without causing so much damage.
Warner Bros. also released concept art of Mera’s costume and it’s terrifying.
That’s not Mera; that’s the corpse of She-Hulk wearing an Emily Blunt mask after specifying in her will that she wanted to be donated to the Bodyworlds exhibit. I have to keep reminding myself that it’s just concept art and not a real thing that lives in the water, otherwise I won’t go swimming ever again.
