Amber Heard briefly appears in the movie as Mera, queen of Atlantis.
The actress recently talked to reporters about joining the superhero film franchise
“It’s kind of weird. This is my first time stepping into this universe; my first superhero role was Justice League. I have a small part in this amazing, huge, big collection of all the superheroes,” said Heard, “We followed it up with Aquaman, which we just wrapped up a week ago. I feel incredibly lucky for this to be my entrance into this world. I’m learning the best part of it all is, really, the fans. Better than all the superpowers and all the super personalities that embody them, the fans who love it, and the energy behind it—that’s been the most rewarding, amazing surprise of it all.”
Aquaman which releases in cinemas Dec. 21, 2018 required months of preparation.
The shoot had half the movie shot on land, while the rest was shot underwater. “The last four or five months of shooting, I didn’t have a dry day. I trained for about six months beforehand. A lot of diet, exercise, taking care of yourself—being in the best shape that you can be,” she said.
Principal photography had started in Australia by May.
“It’s hard being away from home. It’s hard being away from the ones you love,” Heard said. “It’s hard living and maintaining a normal life when you’re that far away for that long. Eight months doing anything is tough. So that was an exercise in patience, stamina and fortitude, but I made it!”
