Now that filming for the Justice League has moved to Iceland and it has been somewhat confirmed via images on social media that the filming will be focusing on Aquaman and the various members in Aquaman’s circle, it didn’t take Zach Snyder long to tease us on social media with images from the Icelandic shoot.

Today, in an official exclusive from IGN, the first look of Amber Heard as Mera, Queen of Atlantis, was released online. The image is beautiful and showcases Iceland’s coastal scenery exquisitely. And Amber Heard as Mera is just fangirl inducing, especially after seeing the concept art that was revealed for the character. Michael Wilkinson,  the costume designer for Justice League, does an excellent job on the costume and it just makes me super giddy to see.

In the original IGN article, which you can find here, there is a cool mini time lapse video that shows the transition from the original concept art to the still we see above. I’ve included the concept art in this article but, to watch the video, I would suggest going to the IGN article itself.

Mera will have a supporting role in the Justice League movie. You can bet for the Aquaman movie, directed by James Wan, she will have a more prominent role.

Justice League is expected to open up in theaters on November 17, 2017. What do you think about the concept art? Let us know in the comments below.
