27th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala - ArrivalsRumors have been circulating for months about Amber Heard's reported role in the upcoming "Aquaman" standalone movie and the first "Justice League" flick, and now, the actress has confirmed her involvement in those high-profile projects.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Heard revealed that she is indeed playing Mera, the undersea queen and love interest for Aquaman (played by Jason Momoa, who'll first hit screens in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" later this month). Though she didn't say anything specific about the role, Heard did give ET a bit of scoop about her costume, teasing that the getup is not your average superhero garb.

"It's interesting," Heard said with a laugh. "I'm wearing, like, half suit of armor, half scales. I don't know, it's strange, it's strange. We're in the process of building it now, so it's coming along."

Heard and co. will have plenty of time to work on the unique outfit, since "Justice League: Part One," in which she'll make her debut, isn't set to hit theaters until November 2017. That will be followed by the "Aquaman" film, which is due out on July 27, 2018.
