Aquaman the next instalment into the DCEU is set to hit theatres this December, with a trailer coming very soon. The movie is highly anticipated, after Jason Mamoa’s portrayal of Aquaman in Justice League was, by many, considered the best part of the film, features an amazing cast. One person from that cast is already set to be dead in the movie, however.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Amber Heard, who plays Mera confirmed that Nicole Kidman who plays Aquaman’s Mother and Queen of Atlantis is already dead at the begging of the film.
“She’s a warrior who was raised by the queen of Atlantis before she passed. We meet Mera after the queen has long since left and she’s been raised to take over as queen her whole life. She’s been raised to serve her kingdom and rule over Atlantis with King Orm.”
Although one could have inferred this from scenes in Justice League this confirms the character is in fact dead. What role we will see her play now is completely a mystery. What role do you think she’ll have in the movie? Make sure to tell us what you think by tweeting us at @SuperBroMovies.
Aquaman comes out December 21, 2018.
‘Aquaman’ will center on Aquaman as a reluctant ruler of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis who is caught between land dwellers that are always polluting the globe and his own people who are ready to invade the surface.
