‘Aquaman’ Star Amber Heard Shares BTS Photo With Jason Momoa & James Wan

Aquaman Amber Heard MeraWith Aquaman now knee-deep into principal photography, Amber Heard has shared a new behind-the-scenes photo from the set of the upcoming DC Films production, featuring herself alongside Jason Momoa and director James Wan.

The photo shows the three of them sitting in the back of a pickup track. Though it doesn’t reveal anything about the highly anticipated movie, Heard’s post does offer us a very good look at her red locks for her role as Mera, Aquaman’s wife.

You can check out the photo below.

Heard’s Mera is set to make her DC Extended Universe debut in this November’s Justice League before taking on a much larger role in Aquaman’s first cinematic solo outing, which is currently filming in Australia.

In addition to Jason Momoa and Amber Heard, Aquaman also stars Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Dolph Lundgren, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Kidman, Ludi Lin and Michael Beach.

Aquaman opens in theaters on December 21, 2018.

10 Reasons Behind The ‘Aquaman’ Hype

Previous1 of 11

If I went back in time five or 10 years and told myself that Black Panther and Aquaman would be my most anticipated superhero movies of 2018, I would have said, “Ahhhh!” because time traveling is freaky. But I would also have been quite surprised about the movies, too. The former I knew only in passing and the latter by the frequent jokes made about him. We here at Heroic Hollywood previously talked about what got us most excited about Black Panther. But we haven’t yet talked about the positive developments behind-the-scenes of Aquaman that have turned the film into an unexpectedly-anticipated blockbuster.

Aquaman is the next DCEU ready for production, gearing up for filming to begin in April in Australia. Of course, the character played by Jason Momoa, a Hawaiian of mixed descent, has already debuted in video and photographs in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad respectively. The king of Atlantis gets his proper introduction in Justice League, coming this November. But its his solo feature, directed by James Wan, that has really grabbed my imagination. The superhero’s story intertwines many great comic book and genre tropes, from the Shakespearan family drama to civilizational clashes to the tragic origin stories. He’s is the first big-screen water superhero. As fascinating as space is, I can’t help but be as fascinated more by the mysterious blue depths.

Here are 10 reasons the growing hype behind Aquaman is real. Click Next to start!

    Hot daaaaaamn.

    I usually don’t drool over celebs, but Amber Heard in Mera hair is simply too good looking.

    P.S.: Are they blonding the tips of Momoa’s hair or is it naturally turning that way due to the amount of time they spend in water or something?
