The highly anticipated DCEU film Aquaman won’t be out for quite a long time, but it doesn’t mean that the people involved will stop dropping hints. We already have seen the big reveal of Amber Heard as Mera, and now we have another reveal to James Wan.
According to James Wan, the two atlantean love interests will have a rough start before finding love.
“It starts off initially with them not quite clicking with each other. But then as the story progresses as they learn to try and work together, they get closer and closer. I think those stories are always such a great place for a filmmaker like myself to have fun with my actors.”
It seems that the development will be slow but steady, but we will eventually be getting our amazing Mera and Aquaman romance. In addition to this, Wan talked about how Mera is more than a love interest, but a hero herself.
“I think that dynamic will be really interesting between the two. Amber’s character is super strong, she’s very powerful as well. You don’t wanna mess with her. I think Amber will bring that sense of strength, but at the same time, we also want someone who has a sort of feminine quality to her as well. She’s a bit of a contrast to Momoa, who’s more of a muscular machine almost.”
This makes us even more excited for the Aquaman movie, if that’s possible. What do you think about this? Do you want Mera to be more of a love interest or more of a hero? Let us know in the comments!
