A tidbit from THR making the rounds around the web. Amber Heard is in negotiations with Warner Brothers to join the DC Cinematic Universe as Mera.
If a deal is made, she will first appear in Justice League film then as the female lead in the Aquaman solo movie opposite Jason Momoa.
James Wan is attached to direct Aquaman, which is undergoing a dual-track development, meaning there are two separate scripts that are being worked on concurrently.
David Leslie Johnson, who is Wan’s writer on The Conjuring 2, is working on one script, while the other one is being penned by Kurt Johnstad, who wrote 300 with Zack Snyder, who is directing Justice League, producing Aquaman and is one of the architects of the DC movieverse.
Justice League is set to begin shooting in April and is slated for a Nov. 17, 2017, release date. Aquaman is due to hit shore eight months later on July 27, 2018.
