Watch Aquaman's Queen Mera practice her fighting skills

It won't just be aqua-lads getting their kicks in with Justice League and the Aquaman solo film - a certain aqua-lady is getting into fighting shape as well. Amber Heard, who plays Mera in both Justice League and Aquaman, has a new video on Instagram showing her fight choreography rehearsal. And though she be but little, she is fierce.

It's hard to say how important Mera will be in the ensemble explosion-fest that is Justice League (though she's got plenty of opportunities to show up with that 3-hour runtime), so hopefully her appearance in Aquaman will be significant enough to warrant this training.

Directed by James Wan and starring Jason Momoa and Amber Heard, Aquaman is currently scheduled for a December 21, 2018 release. Meanwhile, Zack Snyder will be heading up Justice League, scheduled for November 17, 2017. In addition to Momoa and Heard, that movie stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher.
