Before we start we must KNOW who MERA IS. (Besides the Smoking hot red head with a perfect body,face, eyes & hands that has water related powers...)



Mera, Ex Queen of Atlantis, Aquaman's wife, she hails from Xebel which is a underwater dimmension filled with Exiled Atlanteans she was sent to originally kill Aquaman but instead fell in love with Jason Momoa Aquaman, Mera has existed for over 50 years now debuting in 1963

Her Major stories are the Death of Arthur Curry Jr, Becoming a Red lantern in Blackest Night, being the trigger for the Flashpoint battle of Amazonians Vs Atlanteans and her Current run with the Aquaman Comic goin from The Trench,The Others, Thrones of Atlantis & Death of a King.

Her Powers go from being able to live under water to being Super strong, being able to jump miles in a single bound, Water Manipulation to create constructs and limited telepathy.

Now onto the Fan cast



Here we see a few faces of Mera and now I bring you WHO should play her...

OLGA KURYLENKO...

is you google her you'll see a bunch of nude pics, underwear & other hot pics of her. Here's a few less boner inducing ones.





She's hot, I know, She has the face, body, eyes and the chops to play Mera, She has already played a Bond girl, has worked with Ben Affleck and was in the leads to play Wonder Woman, so what better way to be 2nd place than to play an equal badass woman. 

At 34 she is really young and can play mera for a couple of movies which is what multiple Aquaman fans would want, maybe even help make the Superhero women films more respectable by getting her own solo film in the future, Jason Momoa is long rumored to be Aquaman, his curent age is 35 so they would be able to be the King & Queen on Atlantis for a long time and no age hate, Momoa is 6'4 & Olga 5.9 so they also would match great with the tall/short factor, again let's recap

Olga has...
Look
Body
Face
Acting Skills
Height
Connection to WB
All check!


Now let's look at the WHY...

Olga is young, she unlike other actors who either pass or lose the role, has shown no bitterness over it, recently even expressing happiness for Gal's pick over her but aside from that DC has picked lesser known talents for their ain heroes Cavill before Supes was unknown almost, Gal Gadot is also ratherly unexplored in the hollywood world and now with Ray Fisher being only a theather name one could Argue that the only A list name in the JL is Batman with Ben Affleck as the caped crusader, While Momoa is known he is not an A-lister but with a hot chick like Olga around his arm as Aquaman both could have a great run as the Atlanteans top rulers. Young, Pretty, potential and the look give Olga all the reasons why, not to mention her acting  skills have showed that she can have a wide range of emotion which any and all Aquaman stories use. WB/DC could make a career her, making her a big name or maybe bigger than she is now which would of course then transfer into other WB movies she could star in if the future allows it. 

Olga can truly do justice for Mera and she looks the part and that is why my fan cast is her.



Leave your opinion bellow on if OLGA is your pick for MERA.

not a bad choice...
OptionFour - 8/31/2014, 3:19 PM
Huh. Yeah, I could see that. That said, I'd give Olga almost any role she wanted in the DCCU; Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Power Girl, whatever. She's quite talented.

Thanks @Darktower

@OptionFour she fits anyone you mentioned, she is truly perfect
DrunkenNukem - 8/31/2014, 5:06 PM
mmmm....it's not my top choice...but i don't mind her..

Rachel Nichols

I look at Olga and I don't see a supporting character. I don't see a woman who stands behind her man. I see a woman out front kicking some ass. Mera can be cool and kick ass. But she is a backup character. Olga needed to be someone like Wonder Woman. Out front and leading the charge.

Great pick.

It's easy for me to say no to this just because I want Olga to play Talia (the way she was MEANT to be portrayed) so bad, but idk enough about Mera to make an unbiased pick. The first girl to come to mind though would be Rachel Nichols. Or Sienna Miller?

I like the choice of Olga.
But I don't know, I always thought Rachel McAdams would be a good fit.

Jessica Chastian would be the Bad ass version , with the hair to match

Molly Weasley

lol@ Gandhi

Jessica Chastain, Rachel McAdams or Yvonne Strahovski would be quite good. Olga's a good actress and I can see why you picked her, but I just can't imagine her as a redhead.

@OptionFour

I think Emily Blunt should get Catwoman. She's been trying for awhile now.
OptionFour - 9/3/2014, 1:38 PM
@FordEl,
Simply trying for something doesn't make them the right person for the job. If I tried for years to play Catwoman it wouldn't make me right for it. Effort doesn't actually equate to any specific merit for the part.

She doesn't seem right for it in my eyes, but I wouldn't complain if it happened.
