With the release of the latest trailer, fans got our first brief look at Amber Heard’s Mera in action in the brand new “Justice League.” However, the star isn’t quite ready to skip leg day yet, as she’s set to reprise her role as the Atlantean Queen in the 2018 “Aquaman” solo movie. With that in mind, Heard took to Instagram to show off not only her training, but also her sense of humor.
The photo shows Heard in a fierce battle stance, sword in hand, along with a caption that reads, “Wushu were here.” Wushu, of course, is both an exhibition and a full-contact sport derived from traditional Chinese martial arts, which hopefully means we’ll get to see Heard’s Mera fully embrace her comic book counterpart, who never shies away from a good fight.
This isn’t the first time Heard has taken to social media to show us what we’re in for. Last month, Heard also posted a short video on Twitter, letting us get up close and personal with her fists during one of her training sessions. “Aquaman” star Jason Mamoa hasn’t been shy, either, sharing his own training photos and videos to get fans hyped for the upcoming film. Even director James Wan has been getting in on the fun, using Instagram to tease potential filming locations.

“Aquaman” will center on Aquaman as a reluctant ruler of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis who is caught between land dwellers that are always polluting the globe and his own people who are ready to invade the surface.
Directed by James Wan and starring Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Amber Heard (Mera), Patrick Wilson (Orm) and Willem Dafoe (Nuidis Vulko), “Aquaman” surfs into theaters on October 5, 2018. However, the King of Atlantis will next be seen in “Justice League,” which opens on November 17.
