Amber Heard is in talks to join the cast of WB’s “Justice League” pic as the love interest of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, sources close to the project tell Variety. Insiders go on to add that she would not only appear in “Justice League” but would also co-star with Momoa in the studio’s standalone pic that currently has James Wan on board to direct.

If a deal does close, Heard would join an ensemble that already includes Momoa, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot and Ezra Miller, all of whom are expected to make some sort of appearance in “Dawn of Justice” before reprising their roles in “Justice League,” which is set to bow on Nov. 17, 2017. Production is set to begin this April with Zack Snyder directing from a script by Chris Terrio.

Heard would be playing Mera, an undersea queen who eventually marries Aquaman in the comics.

The role would mark Heard’s first venture into the comic book realm and comes on the heels of one of her busiest years. She appeared in “Magic Mike XXL,” “The Danish Girl” and “The Adderall Diaries” in 2015.

I don't care who's she playing. All I know is, I can look at her for an entire movie.

I'm honestly interested to seeing how she does if she is Mera I'm hoping these roles make Jason and her stars meaning they do really well.

Not sure about her acting chops, but she definitely looks the part.
