In a recent interview with Bustle, James Wan opens up about the rocky relationship Aquaman & Mera will have in the 2018 Aquaman film. Wan said that: “I really want to get the classic action-adventure-romance aspect through that, and I think that’s kind of fun.”
Wan shined some light on the characters relationship by saying:
“It starts off initially with them not quite clicking with each other. 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.”
When asked about Amber Heard & Jason Mamoa’s on-screen relationship, Wan said:
“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. 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.
