Emilia Clarke, who rose to fame as Queen Daenerys in the HBO-series Game of Thrones and starred in Solo: A Star Wars Story, could replace Amber Heard for the role of Mera in Aquaman 2.
Amber Heard was last seen as Mera in a minor role in Justice League (2017), which she later reprised in Aquaman (2018). However, many are speculating that she may be laid off for the next installment.
Amber Heard Replaced?
The speculations of Amber Heard being replaced are mainly due to her current legal troubles with her ex-husband, Johnny Depp. After the recent developments in court, Heard is under investigation for manipulating evidence, which could even end up with her in jail! So, it is quite possible that the spot to play Mera in still-unnamed Aquaman sequel will soon be open.
Emilia Clarke as Mera?
With these rumors, fans are already visualizing, which actresses could be perfect for the role of Mera. One particular artist has already portrayed how Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke would look if chosen for this role:
As you can see, Clarke definitely looks great as Mera. But will this fan-made Instagram post be the only place we see her as the red-haired princess of Xebel?
What Does Jason Momoa Have to Say About This?
Aquaman and Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa have not yet commented on this topic, and the rumors are quickly being dispelled by several fans. However, the audience definitely seems to love the chemistry between him and Emilia Clarke. So if Amber Heard is indeed fired due to her unavailability, the fans have already spoken. They want Emilia Clarke as the beautiful Mera to Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.
