AQUAMAN Rumor Claims Mera's Relationship With Dolph Lundgren’s King Nereus Will Be Changed

AQUAMAN <font color="red">Rumor</font> Claims Mera's Relationship With Dolph Lundgren’s King Nereus Will Be Changed

In the comics, Mera was betrothed to General Nereus before she fell in love with Aquaman while plotting his assassination. A new rumor says that scenario will play out differently in James Wan's film.

A new rumor courtesy of the Aquaman fan site Aquaman Shrine says Dolph Lundgren’s King Nereus and Amber Heard's Mera will be father-and-daughter in the film, not lovers.

In the New 52 comics, it was revealed that Mera's father promised Neerus Mera's hand in marriage upon his death.  However, if the rumor is to be believed, Wan is streamlining this a bit and simply making Nereus Mera's father and sidelining a complicated love-triangle subplot.

This rumor is a bit easier to swallow given the age difference between Lundgren (60) and Heard (31). Instead of Mera being trapped between two lovers, she'll have to choose between following her heart and obeying her father.

It will be interesting to see how Aquaman and Mera's relationship unfolds in Aquaman after their brief encounter in Justice League. Was that their first meeting or have they had previous run-ins?


Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and to be a hero to the world.

James Wan directs from a script writen by Will Beall, while Wan and Geoff Johns receive story credits. Jason Momoa stars as s Arthur Curry / Aquaman. Amber Heard plays Mera, Patrick Wilson will portray Orm / Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe plays Nuidis Vulko, Nicole Kidman was cast as Atlanna, Dolph Lundgren will portray the King of Xebel, Nerues while Yahya Abdul-Mateen II portrays David Hyde / Black Manta.

Aquaman hits North American theaters on December 21.
