A character featured in Aquaman may only appear in flashbacks due to a recent interview revealing their death before the film’s story starts.
Possible spoilers for Aquaman ahead!
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Mera actress Amber Heard may have let it slip that queen of Atlantis, who will be portrayed by Nicole Kidman, will be dead before the present story of Aquaman starts. Kidman’s queen of Atlantis will most likely be featured in flashbacks, similar to Bruce’s parents in Batman Begins and Jonathan Kent in Man of Steel. You can read Heard’s comments below:
“[Mera is] a warrior who was raised by the queen of Atlantis before she passed. We meet Mera after the queen has long since left and she’s been raised to take over as queen her whole life.”
So how do you think the queen of Atlantis will die? Speculate below!
Directed by James Wan and written by Will Beall, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Patrick Wilson as Orm Marius/Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin, and Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko.
Aquaman is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on December 21, 2018.
What To Expect From Geoff Johns’ ‘Green Lantern Corps’
After exiting his position as president and chief creative officer of DC Entertainment, Geoff Johns revealed that he will be writing the script for the upcoming Green Lantern Corps movie. The writer, who reintroduced Hal Jordan to the DC Universe and guided him forward for years, is the perfect choice to bring this franchise back to the big screen. No one has a better understanding of Hal Jordan as a character and what it takes to create an emotionally driven, explosive Green Lantern story.
The character may have already failed once at the box office, but that doesn’t mean Green Lantern doesn’t have potential to succeed on the big screen. So far, the DC Extended Universe has been very Earth-focused, and introducing the Green Lanterns is a perfect way to pivot to the stars. Full of cool characters and interesting ideas, the Green Lantern Corps may just be what the DC Extended Universe needs to kick things into gear.
