Aquaman concept artist Aaron Sims has shared never-before-seen character art of Amber Heard’s Mera.
James Wan’s Aquaman shocked audiences everywhere with not only how good the film was but also with how much it made at the worldwide box office. The DC Comics movie grossed well over $1 billion globally and helped solidify Jason Momoa and Amber Heard as major stars in Hollywood. A sequel to the film is currently in development with both stars expected to return.
Amber Heard’s Mera was first introduced in the 2017 film Justice League. In it, Mera tried to stop Steppenwolf from obtaining the Mother Box that was located in Atlantis. She then served as a protagonist in Aquaman opposite Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry. Surprisingly enough, the character artwork featuring Amber Heard’s Mera wasn’t too far off from what we ultimately saw in Aquaman. In an Instagram post, Aquaman concept artist Aaron Sims shared a new look at Amber Heard’s Mera and it’s more or less what we ended up seeing on the big screen. Check out the artwork below.
