Aquaman actress Amber Heard has shared a new behind the scenes photo, revealing she’s back in the mix for film’s reshoots.
The film is currently undergoing additional reshoots following test screenings that were received positively. Reactions praised the film as an action-packed and emotional story that serves as a palate cleanser for fan disappointed by Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
After her brief introduction as Mera in Justice League, Heard reprises her role in the standalone Aquaman film directed by James Wan. The actress has endured intense and extensive training to physically prepare for the role, essentially becoming an athlete herself last year.
You can check out the new photo of Heard back in costume as Mera below.
Plot details remain under wraps, however, Wan’s upcoming swashbuckling action-adventure centered on the King of Atlantis will dive much deeper into the character. The film has also been described as a primal and classic story of revenge from the perspective of the villainous Black Manta.
The film stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Patrick Wilson as Orm Marius/Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin, and Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko.
Aquaman is currently slated to hit theaters on December 21, 2018, in the US.
Why ‘Shazam!’ Is A Good Turning Point For The DC Extended Universe
When it comes to the DC Extended Universe, the results have been struggling at best. Justice League‘s box office returns where nowhere near where they should have been. This is troubling considering that the film features all of the big name superheroes within the DC Comics mythos.

Shazam has been around since the late 1930s. Originally known as Captain Marvel and published through Fawcett Comics, the hero was actually at one point more popular than Superman. After some legal woes and a buyout of Fawcett Comics by DC Comics, the hero became ingrained with DC mythos. Due to the aforementioned legal woes, the character is now more commonly known as Shazam.
