Last week Aquaman director James Wan teased the relationship between Aquaman and Mera in Justice League, and now in a new interview he went into even more detail as to what fans can expect.
“I really want to get the classic action-adventure-romance aspect through that, and I think that’s kind of fun,” Wan told Bustle.
“It starts off initially with them not quite clicking with each other,” Wan continued. “But then as the story progresses as they learn to try and work together, they get closer and closer. I think those stories are always such a great place for a filmmaker like myself to have fun with my actors.”
“I think that dynamic will be really interesting between the two. Amber’s character is super strong, she’s very powerful as well. You don’t wanna mess with her,” Wan explained. “I think Amber will bring that sense of strength, but at the same time, we also want someone who has a sort of feminine quality to her as well. She’s a bit of a contrast to Momoa, who’s more of a muscular machine almost.”
That’s all to come when Aquaman hits theaters in July 2018, but fans will get a sneak peek of Aquaman and Mera’s relationship when Justice League hits theaters next November.
