With less than a year left until Justice League hit theaters, it has become increasingly clear that the film has assembled an insane cast. Zack Snyder has drawn from all corners of the DC mythos, and the first ever DC team-up movie will feature supporting characters from every major superhero franchise. One of the most intriguing worlds that we will get a glimpse of in Justice League is Aquaman's home world of Atlantis, and it now seems that we will see far more of his queen than previously thought. Check out the tweet below to see for yourself.
Although we initially assumed that Mera's (Amber Heard) involvement in Justice League would be little more than a glorified cameo, that tweet has us reconsidering what we had previously thought. The fact that the character will receive a Funko Pop toy to accompany the marketing campaign of the movie's release leads us to believe that she will play a far more vital role the story of the film than previously considered.
As excited as we are to see Mera take a central role in Justice League, the possibility of her having a significant part in the story of the film raises a few vital concerns. Justice League is clearly going to be big, and the movie's incredibly large cast has us wondering how Zack Snyder will be able to balance the sheer number of personalities present in the story. The director does not necessarily have the strongest track record of keeping large ensembles in check (particularly when it came to Batman V Superman's vast array of characters), so we will have to wait and see how these DC icons come together and coalesce.
Of course, it is worth noting that Justice League may simply be going all in on the Funko Pop marketing. With so many classic characters coming into the fray during this film, they may just release a ton of toys to accompany the long-awaited DC adventure. At this point, there's no real way of knowing.
Regardless of how involved she is in the Justice League narrative, we cannot even begin to express how excited we are to see Mera make her debut in the DC Extended Universe. Moving beyond her first appearance on the silver screen later this year, she will take on a far more prominent role when James Wan's Aquaman and everything that we have heard about her dynamic with Jason Momoa's Arthur Curry promises a delightfully loving (yet antagonistic) relationship.
CinemaBlend will bring you more information related to Justice League as new details become available to us. Zack Snyder's superhero epic will hit theaters later this year on November 17, 2017.
