According to what was recently stated, Amber Heard will have a 10-minute screen-time in the new Aquaman, but fans are still not there, and have launched a petition to exclude the actress from the DC film. In the meantime, many have imagined a possible recast, posting fan art of Emilia Clarke in the role.
Of course, this change of actress is unlikely to happen now. The film is in fact filmed and ready to come out, and other than reducing Heard’s playing time, there doesn’t seem to be much else that can be done. As we know the actress landed the role of Mera for Justice League in 2017 and reprized it the following year in Aquaman. In truth everyone has been wondering for a while now if she will be replaced. In fact, the allegations of abuse made against her by her ex-husband Johnny Depp came a few years ago, and have been rekindled by the still ongoing lawsuit.
And it is precisely starting from this situation that the fans have suggested on social networks to replace Heard with Emilia Clarke in the DC world. The Game of Thrones actress would in fact have all the credentials to interpret Mera, the princess of Atlantis. In fact Clarke is not only a very good interpreter, but she also already has experience with successful franchises, having recently entered the Marvel world and having also acted in the Star Wars universe. But what would she look like as Mera? A fan art shows it to uswhich you will find at the bottom of the article: watch it with us!
