Amber Heard teased her return as Mera in 2022’s Aquaman 2 with a throwback photo to the production of the first Aquaman movie.
Heard tried to read the set of the DC tape a bit, but his co-star Jason Momoa had a habit of ripping out the final pages of whatever book he was reading at the time.
On Saturday, April 17, Heard posted a photo taken on the set of DC’s hit movie on her official Instagram account of herself reading Iain M. Banks’s ‘Surface Detail’.
“Before Aquaman pulled out the last pages of this book. #Gettingakindleforaquaman2”.
Heard explained the entire page-breaking situation to Jimmy Fallon during an episode of The Tonight Show in 2018, during the promotional period leading up to the debut of the first Aquaman movie. Turns out, Momoa doesn’t like people to ignore him.
“He can’t standstill. So whatever happens, he will push you, he will shove you, he will shove you, anything to get your attention, especially if you enjoy a quieter activity like reading.”
Although some fans would like to see her replaced due to her court battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp, Heard’s Instagram post suggests that she is preparing to return to work as Mera when Aquaman 2 begins filming.
She enthusiastically confirmed her comeback earlier, thanking the audience for all of their support.
Actor Jason Momoa returns as Aquaman in the sequel. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II also returns as Aquaman’s nemesis, Black Manta. Game of Thrones’ Pilou Asbaek joins the cast of the sequel. James Wan returns to direct.
Aquaman 2 opens in theaters on December 16, 2022.
