A newly-surfaced photo from James Wan’s Aquaman offers fans a behind-the-scenes look at Amber Heard’s Mera and Willem Dafoe’s Vulko.
After making her DC Extended Universe debut in Justice League, Amber Heard returned to the role of Mera for James Wan’s Aquaman alongside Willem Dafoe, who played royal advisor Nuidis Vulko. With Atlantis at risk under the rule of the evil King Orm, Willem Dafoe’s Vulko sent Amber Heard’s Mera to convince Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry to take his place as the rightful king of the underwater kingdom.
Together, Amber Heard’s Mera and Willem Dafoe’s Vulko played an important role in getting Aquaman to accept his role as King of Atlantis before saving their homeworld. Now, a behind-the-scenes photo from Aquaman has surfaced online, showing Amber Heard and Willem Dafoe together suited up as Mera and Vulko on set.

Amber Heard is expected to reprise her role as Mera for the Aquaman sequel opposite Jason Momoa. There hasn’t been any official word on whether or not Willem Dafoe will return as Vulko for Aquaman 2, but it is very possible considering the character survived the first film.
David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick is working on the script for the Aquaman sequel, with James Wan expected to return to the director’s chair. For now, Amber Heard’s Mera and Willem Dafoe’s Vulko can be seen in the first Aquaman movie, which is available on all home media formats. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an acition-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.

The CW Drops First Photos From Grant Gustin’s ‘The Flash’ Season 6 Premiere
The CW has released the first official photos from the sixth season premiere of Grant Gustin's The Flash.
The sixth season of The Flash is set to begin in just over one month and fans are curious to see how the latest chapter of the Grant Gustin series will build towards the long-looming Crisis on Infinite Earths. Now, The CW has released the first official photos from the season six premiere, titled "Into the Void," and they offer fans their first look at Grant Gustin's Barry Allen and the rest of Team Flash.
While the photos offer few details on what to expect from the season six opener, they do feature Grant Gustin and his co-stars gathered together in S.T.A.R. Labs. You check out the photos from the season 6 premiere of The Flash below and click "Next" to continue the gallery!
Full details on the sixth season of Grant Gustin's The Flash are under wraps, though Heroes alum Sendhil Ramamurthy has joined the cast at DC Comics villain Bloodwork. In the comics, Bloodwork is a Central City morgue employee and hemophiliac who developed the ability to transform his flesh into blood-like physiology after experimenting with blood properties. The new season has also been teased to include an antagonist who will be the most personal villain Barry Allen has faced since Eobard Thawne.
The sixth season will also lead into highly-anticipated Arrowverse crossover titled Crisis on Infinite Earths and the back-half of the Grant Gustin series' next season will deal with the fallout from the five-part event. With Arrow coming to an end this fall after concluding its eight-episode final season, The Flash will also become The CW’s main DC Comics drama and Grant Gustin's Barry Allen will seemingly lead the other Arrowverse superheroes forward.
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, and Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man.
The Flash season six premieres on October 8, 2019. Stay tuned for the latest news from the Arrowverse!
