Shooting on location for Aquaman next year, Jason Momoa and Amber Heard were spotted shoreside in the Australian coastal suburb of Currumbin and look slightly different from their Justice League appearance in both a set photo/video that recently surfaced Friday.
While Mera’s costume looks to be the one everyone saw online early on into Justice League production, it’s certainly not the regal, more armored version of Mera we’ve seen since. As for Aquaman, his armor is seemingly unlike anything revealed thus far. Have a look for yourself in the tweet below and check out the video:

The main thing to note for Mera is what she’s holding in the image. Though it’s hard to make out what it is, perhaps it’s something key to the plot of the film. Meanwhile, what’s interesting about Momoa’s chestplate and shoulder pads is how similar they look to the ‘crustacean’ type of armor seen in concept art for Aquaman in the abandoned Justice League: Mortal movie that was set to be directed by George Miller and slated for 2009.
In any case, the new armor is certainly fitting for a warrior of both land and sea. Plus, it only adds to Momoa’s wardrobe, which seems to rotate from fully armored to shirtless with jeans — this look is a good midway point. Meanwhile, Mera continues to accurately resemble her comic book counterpart.
Directed by James Wan and written by Will Beall, Aquaman 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, and Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko.
Aquaman is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on Dec. 21, 2018.
7 Green Lantern Stories We’d Love To See Adapted For The Big Screen
There were no major Green Lantern characters in Justice League, but the hero is eventually set to hit the big screen again in 2020 with Green Lantern Corps. The real mystery is what kind of Lantern stories will the movie have and who will wield a ring? The only thing I know is it’s not a good idea to wait for Ryan “Deadpool” Reynolds to mutter the Green Lantern oath on the big screen anytime soon.
There are so many stories and unique Green Lanterns the movie could draw from, so at the end of the day I hope the material is treated with the respect it deserves. It took some hard work, but I whittled my favorite stories down to this list of seven easily adaptable arc that show off some of the action and emotion Green Lantern has to offer. Don’t expect to recommend any simple origin stories here, though — man-oh-man am I tired of seeing those.
