A new image shows Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke replacing Amber Heard as Mera in Warner Bros. and DC’s Aquaman 2.
With Dolph Lundgren seemingly confirming that production on Aquaman 2 starts this summer, many fans are still debating whether Amber Heard should return as Mera in the upcoming DC Films sequel in the aftermath of her recent legal battles with her ex-husband Johnny Depp. Since Depp left his role in the next Fantastic Beasts film, some think that it’s only fair that Amber Heard does the same with Aquaman 2. This would leave a huge question regarding who should pick up the role after Amber Heard, with many suggesting Emilia Clarke as the perfect actress to play the next Mera in the DC Extended Universe.
This artwork from Instagram user ‘jph_photoshop’ gives Emilia Clarke a Mera makeover for Aquaman 2, with the Game of Thrones star rocking the signature red hair which has been synonymous with the character ever since she was created by Jack Miller and Nick Cardy way back in 1963’s Aquaman #11. The concept design also shows Clarke wearing the bright green Atlantean body suit Amber Heard wore in the first film. You can see Emilia Clarke as Amber Heard’s Mera replacement for Aquaman 2 below.
