From the Mother of Dragons to the Queen of Atlantis.
A new concept design sees Emilia Clarke take over from Amber Heard as Mera for Jason Momoa’s Aquaman 2.
Following Johnny Depp’s exit from Fantastic Beasts 3 after his legal issues with ex-wife Amber Heard, many DC Extended Universe fans have called for the star to also leave her role as Mera in Aquaman 2. The actress has previously confirmed that she’ll be back for the sequel, once again appearing opposite Jason Momoa in the James Wan-directed adventure. However, Emilia Clarke has constantly been suggested as the perfect replacement for Aquaman 2.
The new fan art from ‘valentinromeroart’ on Instagram gives Emilia Clarke the hexagonal suit for the Mera role and the Game of Thrones star also wears the underwater crown. But the design also adds a purple color to the suit to give Clarke a different costume for Aquaman 2. For now, Amber Heard will remain in her role for the DCEU, but it would be very easy for Emilia Clarke to slip into the character if Heard does leave. Take a look below.
Should Amber Heard leave her role behind? Would you like to see Emilia Clarke as Mera in the DCEU? What do you want from Aquaman 2? Sound-off in the comments below!
Here’s the official synopsis for Jason Momoa’s first Aquaman film:
