Most of the main cast members from the first film are returning for another aquatic adventure including Amber Heard, who is still part of the movie despite her controversies in the past few years. However, she will have a lesser screen time compared to the first.
So far, we still don't know what kind of involvement Heard's character Mera has in the story of the film and why she won't be part of the main adventure, but we've seen a brief glimpse of her in the trailer.
Now, we have a new look again at the actress' appearance in the sequel.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom TV Spot Offers Another Look at Mera
A new TV spot for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom offered another brief look at the appearance of Heard's Mera in the film.
In the series of rapid-fire shots that they showed in the 15-second footage, Mera was seen screaming and seemingly devastated about a certain moment that happened.
It is unclear yet what Mera was reacting to, but fans are speculating that it is hinting that either their son or Arthur's father Thomas Curry died after Black Manta's attack in the Curry household.

Despite her reported reduced screen time, this new brief footage suggests that Mera still has some involvement in the story of the film since she is seemingly part of the set-up in the earlier part that will lead to Arthur and Orm's quest in the majority of the movie.
Obviously, this is all speculation at this point since the film has not been released to the public, but we can safely say now that Heard's appearance won't be a cameo and she'll have a significant role as a supporting player.
Fortunately, we only have a few weeks left before we'll find out the answers to what we've been wondering about the sequel.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to release in theaters this December 22.
