While filming Aquaman, actress Amber Heard spoke with ComicBook.com about her role as Mera in the film and her Atlantean skill set. Amber had this to say when it comes to using her power and what skills she has:
“So I control water. Mera’s power, other than just being a warrior princess in Atlantis, is that she also can control water, a power that becomes in quite handy as you will see. Not only in this scene, but it plays throughout the mission, throughout their entire journey. She relies on hydrokinesis to kind of save the world and stuff.
Amber also went into some details about the role she will play and how she will help Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) become the king he was destined to become:
“What I really love is that it does not rely on this whole damsel in distress formulaic thing we see all the time, we’ve seen a million times. He doesn’t rescue the girl and then save the world. He doesn’t — in fact, I save him. Like I said, they go on this adventure as equal partners and they end it that way. There is an element of attraction there, but it is not the thing — because they have a job to do, they have a mission to fulfill and are equal partners in the success or failure of that mission, that takes a back seat to this. Their relationship, that element is not the driving force or what brings them together.”
We recently got a look at the Aquaman man trailer which you can check out below. The trailer shows Aquaman forced to return to Atlantis and face his brother Orm in a battle to see who will rule sea and save humanity from annihilation. Also we see another villain rise in the form of Black Manta to throw a wrench in Arthur’s plans to save his home and the people he loves.
