Amber Heard is taking a dive under the sea.

In the upcoming Justice League, Heard will suit up as Mera, the queen of Atlantis and the love interest of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman. We already got our first glimpse of Aquaman in action after Warner Bros. released Justice League teaser footage at San Diego Comic-Con, and now, the film has shared a look at his Atlantean queen.

IGN shared a 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). In addition to appearing in Justice League, Mera is expected to play a bigger role in James Wan’s standalone Aquaman film, scheduled to hit theaters on July 27, 2018.

In addition to Momoa and Heard, Justice League will feature Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder is on board again to helm Justice League, and last week, he announced that the film has officially wrapped in the U.K.

Justice League will hit theaters on Nov. 17, 2017. Head to IGN for additional details on Heard’s costume.
