The leading lady in Aquaman, Lady Mera, has finally emerged. And we think she looks a whole lot like a certain Disney mermaid. Only she’s a little hipper. And she’s a little more grown-up. Plus, there’s a serious sci-fi angle. Aquaman director James Wan and actress Amber Heard recently released photos from the set of the new DC film.

Take a look at the latest version of Amber as Lady Mera!

Check out the glittering green hexagons, the skin-tight body suit, and the tangerine hair. We can’t help but notice the comparisons to our favorite underwater princess and daughter of King Triton! All she’s missing is a singing anthropomorphic crab and yellow and blue-striped fish.

And here’s another shot!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, this costume is a slight departure from Mera’s Justice League look. See for yourself:

Notice the crown, the sharp, protruding metal shoulders and the muted colors. We can’t tell if the colors are a result of a filter. Either way, we are digging both versions!

Earlier, the actress posted a picture from inside her trailer. According to her Twitter post, she’s been working super hard to bring Mera to life. She gave up her beloved donuts and has been training her butt off.

Not much has been released about the stand-alone feature in the DC Extended Universe. We do know Aquaman director James Wan is working with one stellar cast.

We can hardly believe the roster!

Jason Momoas as Aquaman. Amber Heard as Mera, Aquaman’s lady love. Willem Dafoe as Nuidia Vulko. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta. Patrick Wilson as Orm. And Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna.

Unfortunately, we will be waiting another year before feasting our eyes on the actual film itself. Aquaman is set to arrive December 21, 2018.
