Emilia Clarke suits up as Amber Heard’s Mera replacement in a fan-made image for James Wan’s Aquaman 2.
After all the controversy involving Amber Heard and Johnny Depp in the last few years, it’s unsurprising that many audiences have called for the Aquaman star to step down from her role as the DC Extended Universe’s Mera, much like Depp’s exit from the Fantastic Beasts franchise. However, since this version of Mera goes hand-in-hand with Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry, it would be disappointing to see the character leave Aquaman 2. One actress who’s constantly suggested as Heard’s replacement for the role is none other than Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke.
A cool concept design created by digital artist ‘jph_photoshop’ on Instagram sees Emilia Clarke trading her white Targaryen hair for Mera’s vibrant red look. The fan art shows the Game of Thrones star wearing the green Atlantean costume Amber Heard wore in the first Aquaman film, adding in a wave of water for good measure. For now, Heard confirmed that’s she is still set to return in Aquaman 2. You can see Emilia Clarke as Mera in the artwork below.

Here’s the official synopsis for the first Aquaman movie featuring Amber Heard’s Mera:
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.
