Amber Heard appeared on Entertainment Tonight and revealed that she will be playing Mera in DC’s upcoming AQUAMAN, where she’ll be starring opposite Jason Momoa. Mera is the Queen of Atlantis, and in the comics she has powers that include aquakenisis, telepathy, enhanced strength, and the ability to create structures using water. 

The actress offered up a small tease about what her costume will look like. “It’s interesting. It’s like, half suit of armor, half scales. It’s strange… We’re in the process of building it now, so it’s coming along,” revealed Heard.

You can watch the 44 second clip of her comments here:

Something funny I picked up on while watching that clip was that James Franco seems to be getting a kick out of it, and almost seems to be making Heard feel self-conscious about this topic. If you’ll recall, Franco recently revealed that he regrets working on Sam Raimi’s SPIDER-MAN films, and so it’s possible he had some fun with Heard on the set of THE ADDERALL DIARIES over her decision to don tights for a big studio comic book flick. 

AQUAMAN will be directed by James Wan (THE CONJURINGFURIOUS 7).

You excited to see Heard as Mera?
