Filming for the upcoming "#Aquaman" solo movie is now well underway in Australia. Cast members and crew have already flown to the country down under and have started work on the different scenes. Now, official set photos of some of the characters have made its way online, the first one being #Mera, which is played by 31-year old actress #Amber Heard.

Green and sexy

Johnny Depp's ex-wife was shown in a stunning and intricate form-fitting green suit that is contrasted by her dyed red hair. The suit also showcases her full upper assets, which are quite prominent. The first image was uploaded by the movie's director, James Wan, on his Instagram and Twitter account.

The director captioned the photo by saying that he was enjoying his first day of shooting with Heard. The photo that was taken by Jasin Boland showed amber with a stunned look, which is likely a part of a scene they were shooting for the movie as opposed to her posing for a shot.

Preparing for the role

Heard has been quite active in social media since she was brought onto the project. When she's not posting photos of her and her new beau, 45-year old billionaire and entrepreneur Elon Musk, the actress is posting photos of her getting ready for the big role. The actress has apparently been going through training and an intense workout program for the past 6 months to prepare for the role. She even posted a photo of her first day on set saying that all of her sacrifice and denying herself the pleasure of donuts have all led to that particular moment.

All of her preparations are of course necessary as she will be playing the powerful Queen of the undersea nation of Atlantis. Aside from just being Aquaman's love interest, Mera is a powerful being on her own as she possesses telepathic powers, hydrokinetic abilities, and extreme combat prowess thanks to her training in Xebel. The character will be making her debut in the upcoming "Justice League" movie that is scheduled to premiere on Nov. 17.

Confirmed cast members

Opposite Jason Momoa's Aquaman and Heard's Mera, the duo will be fighting against the film's confirmed villains Black Manta and Ocean Master. The characters will be played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Patrick Wilson, respectively. Other actors that will be joining the cast are Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, and Nicole Kidman as Atlanna.

"Aquaman" is scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 21, 2018.
