Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke suits up as Mera to replace Amber Heard in a stunning new concept design for Aquaman 2.
Johnny Depp was forced to step away from his role as the main villain of the Fantastic Beasts series after losing his libel case related to the abuse allegations made by his ex-wife Amber Heard. Since Depp alleged that Heard was also physically and emotionally abusive towards him in their relationship, many fans would like the Aquaman star leave her role as the comic book icon Mera in the DC Extended Universe movies. While it would probably be easier for Aquaman 2 to just jettison the character entirely, some suggested Emilia Clarke to take over the role of Mera as a way for the sequel to move forward without any story-related issues.
Digital artist BossLogic took the idea and ran with it. In his latest concept, BossLogic reveals what Emilia Clarke could look like as Mera for Aquaman 2. It’s hard to deny that the former Game of Thrones star looks the part, as the new outfit the artist puts her in immediately gives her a regal look. Clarke’s acting talents would definitely be a big step up for the DCEU and Game of Thrones fans would be wholly excited to see the British star reunite with Jason Momoa. You can see Emilia Clarke as Amber Heard’s Mera replacement in the concept design below.
