Blake Lively is a stunning Mera in this incredible Aquaman image.
The people are talking about the DCEU once again. Between the release of Wonder Woman 1984, the recent release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League on HBO Max and the upcoming release of The Suicide Squad, it’s a great time to be a DC fan.
Another upcoming DCEU installment is none other than Aquaman 2 which will see Jason Momoa reprise his role as the titular hero of the piece: Arthur Curry himself, Aquaman. The sequel is expected to hit theaters in December 2022 in the hopes that it will recreate the unforeseen success of the first movie.
Aquaman 2 has been the subject of a lot of discussion lately, with both the Snyder Cut of Justice League and rumors regarding Amber Heard’s involvement in the project generating a lot of headlines. The latter also sparked a lot of discussion over the possibility of the role of the Queen of Atlantis, Mera, being recast. Though the actress has since confirmed that she will be involved in the film, fans had already taken to social media to share their ideas for potential Mera if the role were to be recast. One of those ideas was Blake Lively.
What Blake Lively might look like if she played Mera in Aquaman 2
Blake Lively’s name was listed by many fans when picking their dream castings of Mera if Amber Heard did not return to the role (though we now know that she is). Digital artist spdrmnkyxxiii brought one fan’s particular request to life by posting some of their amazing artwork featuring Blake Lively in the role of Mera.
Blake Lively is, of course, no stranger to superhero movies as she appeared in 2011’s Green Lantern. Though the movie has gone down in history as one of the studios’ most infamous offerings, the film’s star (and Lively’s husband), Ryan Reynolds, doesn’t see any harm in poking fun at it.
Another name that fans often brought up when discussing Mera was Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke – who looks absolutely incredible in the role in this image.
Aquaman 2 will undoubtedly hope to recreate the success of the first movie – which became a surprise box office sensation, overperforming to gross over $1 billion, making it the highest-grossing DC film of all time.
