Two new TV spots for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom have been shared online, and one of 'em gives us a very brief new look at Amber Heard as Mera.

Arthur Curry's love-interest had a prominent role in the first film, but Heard has previously revealed that most of her scenes for the sequel were removed, with only two early sequences making the final cut. Director James Wan claims that Mera was always going to have a reduced role, but, for whatever reason, it's become clear that the character is mostly being left out of the marketing.

Is this due to so many fans turning on Heard after details of the Depp vs. Heard trial were made public, or possibly because of the actress' negative comments about Wan and co-star Jason Momoa? Whatever the case may be, we do get another blink-and-you'll-miss-it glimpse of Mera in the second promo as she reacts to "Aquababy" being taken by Black Manta.

The other spot is longer, and features quite a bit of new footage of Aquaman and Ocean Master teaming-up to face-off against Manta's forces.

The Aquaman sequel will be the final movie of the "DCEU" era before the franchise is rebooted. Momoa will most likely hang up the trident, but is said to be in talks to play a completely different character in James Gunn and Peter Safran's DCU, Lobo.

Do you plan on seeing The Lost Kingdom opening weekend? Let us know in the comments, and check out a new international poster below.

"Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all. This time Black Manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic Black Trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force. To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction.

All returning to the roles they originated, Jason Momoa plays Arthur Curry/Aquaman, no, after w balancing his duties as both the King of Atlantis and a new father; Patrick Wilson is Orm, Aquaman’s half-brother and his nemesis, who must now step into a new role as his brother’s reluctant ally; Amber Heard is Mera, Atlantis’ Queen and mother of the heir to the throne; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is Black Manta, committed more than ever to avenge his father’s death by destroying Aquaman, his family and Atlantis; and Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, a fierce leader and mother with the heart of a warrior. Also reprising their roles are Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus and Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin."

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to swim into theaters on December 20.

@BackInTheJSSR01 - Why is every word capitalized???

@GeneralChaos - It's how those stupid challenge videos are written.

@AmazingFILMporg - tbf I'm into that but not Amber's or Jason's
GeneralChaos - 12/5/2023, 2:58 PM
What a load of BS, that she was always going to have a reduced role. The story is about his family being attacked. Is she not his family? Is she not the mother of his child? I hope everyone can put aside their feelings for Amber and admit what a load of crap that statement is LOL
dracula - 12/5/2023, 3:04 PM
@GeneralChaos - dont think anyone cares if the statement is true or not. people just want heard gone.

dont see a lot of nichole kidman going on the buddy cop adventure with Arthur and Orm though, so not like she is the only person with a smaller role.
GeneralChaos - 12/5/2023, 3:51 PM
@dracula - I know they're won't be pushback on what he said because of how people feel but I feel BS should be called out when it's BS. She was written out because of fan reaction to her. That's the truth people should call them out for because it at least validates how they feel about her.

@GeneralChaos - awww, little virtue-signaling bets boy is triggered. How cute!
GeneralChaos - 12/8/2023, 12:25 PM
@Elle79 - Oh oh. An incel is upset and took a comment as a defense of Amber Heard. How sad!
Elle79 - 12/12/2023, 11:28 PM
@GeneralChaos - yeah, a married woman is an “incel”. God you people get dumber by the day

First movie made so much bank that WB proved how much they believe in em by letting Momoa write the damn sequel, lol.

Outrageous!
dracula - 12/5/2023, 3:01 PM
@Doomsday8888 - think he wrote the story, not the script
dracula - 12/5/2023, 3:00 PM
they are really trying to hide the turd.

Heard Momoa, Wilson, Wan and the guy who plays Manta were all at some event

so sign of Heard

If the Depp trial didn't kill her career, her last movie bombing and her going after Momoa for having a similar dressing style to Depp probably did.

I honestly think DC should lean into her history and leverage it. "Come see the controversial figure."
FlopWatchers5 - 12/5/2023, 3:02 PM
she looks stunning. she deserved a spin off.
Urubrodi - 12/5/2023, 3:20 PM
@BiggieMac4Sauce - if they decide to do a porn parody then sure why not

BackInTheJSSR01 - 12/5/2023, 3:09 PM
@dracula - Aquababy's real mom is King Shark confirmed.
marvel72 - 12/5/2023, 3:19 PM
@dracula - Could you imagine a scene with Arthur kissing Mera now the scene plays out Arthur kissing King Shark.
