Emilia Clarke becomes Mera in a new concept design that imagines the Game of Thrones star as Amber Heard’s Mera replacement for Aquaman 2.
Amber Heard made her DC Extended Universe debut as Mera in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Although Mera only had a minor role in the superhero team-up flick, she was instrumental in getting Jason Momoa’s Aquaman to help the Justice League. The actress would later reprise her role as Mera in Momoa’s first cinematic solo outing as Aquaman. However, some have speculated that Heard’s time as Mera may be coming to an end due to her ongoing legal troubles with her ex-husband Johnny Depp.
Rumors circulated that Amber Heard had been fired from Aquaman 2 because of the star’s ongoing legal problems. Those rumors have since been debunked, but some have still given their own thoughts on who could replace the actress as Mera if she ends up getting fired from the upcoming movie. In this particular case, an artist has revealed what Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke could look like as Mera for the highly-anticipated Aquaman sequel.
Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke previously shared the screen in the first season of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones and it seems someone wants to see them reunite. A recent post from Instagram user dcmarvel.rdm gives us an idea as to what Clarke could look like if she were to take over Amber Heard’s role as Mera. You can see Clarke as Mera in the fan art below.

Amber Heard’s Mera was last seen in 2018’s Aquaman. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-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.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
