A recent Instagram snap from Amber Heard shows the Aquaman female lead preparing for the start of filming this summer and looking like a badass while she’s at it!
Although a recent video showed Jason Momoa’s intense preparation for the Aquaman role, this is the first look we have got of one of the other cast members. The 30-year-old actress is set to play Mera, Aquaman’s wife and Queen of Atlantis in the 2018 blockbuster. The shot (seen below) shows Heard with a Katana training in the martial art of Wushu with her trainer Li Jing.
In addition to her appearance in next year’s Aquaman, Heard is also set to take her place among the DC universe’s heavyweights in this year’s Justice League. Unlike Marvel, DC have chosen to jump straight into a team-up film before many of the character’s introduction solo films. If Suicide Squad is anything to go by, it is a risky move indeed. However, I remain optimistic and with each new trailer and badass training pic, I become more an more excited.
Aquaman is set to hit U.S. theaters on 21 December, 2017.
