In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actress confirmed she will star as Aquaman’s wife and the Queen of Atlantis, Mera.
She will be introduced to the DCEU in the Zack Snyder directed Justice League: Part One, slated for release in 2017. The following year, Heard will reprise her role as Mera in the Aquaman standalone film, which was recently revealed to be a continuation of Justice League, rather than an origin story.
Heard also offered a tease on the costume she’d be donning as the undersea queen, “it’s interesting. It’s like, half suit of armor, half scales,” she disclosed. “It’s strange… We’re in the process of building it now, so it’s coming along.”

Justice League: Part One is scheduled to hit the big screen November 17, 2017.
