It isn’t just any woman who can claim to bee Queen of Atlantis. Whoever she is, she has to be able to keep up with Arthur Curry, Aquaman, the King of Atlantis. In the case of the DC Extended Universe, where Aquaman is played by former Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa, that’s an especially high bar to aspire towards.
A new video shared by Amber Heard on her Instagram feed shows that the actress is definitively putting in the work. Heard is set to play Mera, Aquaman’s wife, in Justice League and Aquaman and, while her husband may be the one in the Justice League, Heard’s video shows that her Mera will be quite capable of holding her own against anyone who tries to threaten her underwater kingdom.
“Another day at the office,” Heard writes in the Instagram post. The video shows her training for Aquaman by running through some fight choreography against two men attacking her from opposite sides. Check it out for yourself below.
