The upcoming Justice League will be jammed packed with superheroes, and we can’t wait.
First, the film is set to introduce Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, Ezra Miller’s The Flash, J. K. Simmons’s James Gordon, Willem Dafoe’s Nuidis Vulko, and Julian Lewis Jones’s unnamed character.
That’s already a long list, but remember, the film also sees the return of Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Amy Adams’s Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons’s Alfred, and Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor. Oh, and Snyder needs to resurrect Henry Cavil’s Superman.
Along with all these characters, bisexual actress Amber Heard’s Mera will also debut in the film, and IGN has shared the first photo of Mera concept art (created by costume designer Michael Wilkinson and illustrator Ian Joyner), as well as a still shot of Heard in costume (complete with green scales and an elaborate headpiece).

While Heard as Mera is only expected to play a supporting role in Justice League, she will have a much bigger part in the upcoming “Aquaman” movie, directed by James Wan.
In Justice League – fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act – Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.
Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of meta-humans to stand against this newly awakened threat.
But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heros, it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League will hit theatres on November 17, 2017.
