Report: Amber Heard in talks to play Mera in Justice League, Aquaman

Amber Heard is the latest name circulating Warner Bros.' upcoming Justice League movie.

According to Variety, Heard is in talks to play the Queen of Atlantis, Mera. If she signs onto the project, she'll also play Aquaman's love interest in the upcoming stand-alone movie.

Although the Justice League movie is still a year away, various actors have already been confirmed to be a part of the project. Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot and Henry Cavill will reprise their roles as Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman from the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. They'll be joined by Ezra Miller, who's playing the Flash in his character's own stand-alone movie due out in 2018, and Jason Momoa, who's been cast as Aquaman, also due out in 2018.

Both Miller and Momoa are expected to make brief appearances in Dawn of Justice before their own films next year, but there's no indication as to whether Heard would also cameo in Zack Snyder's film.

Not much is known about the Justice League film, other than it's being helmed by Snyder and production starts this April. Justice League will be released on Nov. 17, 2019.
