Well, the DC Extended Universe certainly has some problems, but ambition ain’t one of them. In fact, many would say that their ambition isone of the main reasons their films have been so negatively received. Rather than focus on a couple specific characters, they’ve spread the narrative too thin, seemingly more focused on fan service than actually telling a compelling story. Love it or hate it, that seems to be their approach, and it doesn’t seem like the upcoming Justice League will be much different, as it’ll also be introducing a number of ancillary characters.

If you’ll recall, the Justice League members themselves — Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Flash, and Aquaman — won’t be the only ones making their way into this teamup flick. Also hopping on board is Commissioner Gordon, a character associated with the Batman lore. We also knew that Aquaman’s wife, Mera, would be making her big screen debut in the flick as well, and will be played by Amber Heard. 

While we’ve known this for some time, we haven’t seen much of her look…until now. Thanks to a report from IGN, we now have three looks at Mera. The first is a sketch, the second is a piece of concept art, and the third is final look of Amber Heard in costume.

Take a look below!

While folks may have some pretty differing opinions as to the actual quality of storytelling in the DCEU, I feel like it’s hard to go against the visual aesthetic they’ve come up with for these characters. Between every member of the Justice League, the characters in Suicide Squad, and everyone else we’ve seen, I’ve yet to see a bad look (yes, I’m even a fan of the Joker) in this universe. 

What do you think? Do you like this reveal of Amber Heard as Mera? Let us know your thoughts down below!

Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
