Whether people like it or not, actress Amber Heard is still happily working on a variety of DC projects. Aside from still being attached to work on Aquaman 2, Amber Heard also reprised her role as Mera for Zack Snyder’s upcoming cut of Justice League. In fact, she just finished shooting, and had some rather positive things to say about the production and director Zack Snyder himself. She also discussed the upcoming series based on The Stand that she stars in.
While speaking with ComicBook.com, this is what Amber Heard had to say:
“I’m super excited about it. We just wrapped on reshoots and I just love nerds. I f*cking love nerds, excuse my language,” Heard began.
Amber Heard then expressed her love for “nerds” and explained that not only is Justice League director Zack Snyder the “perfect example of a nerd”, but so is director Josh Boone whom she worked with on The Stand.
“He’s a perfect example, Zack [Snyder] is a perfect example of a nerd,” Heard said. “You know, I got into this project on The Stand because of another true, die hard nerd, which is Josh Boone, who connected all of us on this project as he was adapting the book for Stephen [King}. And I think it’s just a good rule of thumb to follow, especially in this genre which I love. It’s like follow the nerd, the nerd passion is where you want to be.”
What’s more, her excitement also extends to Aquaman 2 where she’ll also be playing Mera yet again – despite a variety of petitions aiming to see her removed from the role.
“I’m super excited about the amount of fan love and the amount of fan appreciation that Aquaman has acquired and that it has garnered so much excitement for Aquaman and Mera that it means we’ll be coming back,” Heard said. “I’m so excited to film that.”
Audiences will be able to see Amber Heard back as Mera first in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, however. The new cut of the film is intended to arrive on HBO Max in four one-hour installments in the summer of 2021.
