"Aquaman" is now filming, and Amber Heard is ready to fight.

Heard plays Mera, wife of Jason Momoa's Aquaman/Arthur Curry, in the DC Comics standalone movie. The characters will both be in "Justice League" this November before getting their own "swashbuckling action adventure" in 2018.

The actress showed off some of her character's skills in an Instagram video from set:

"Aquaman" director James Wan previewed his film to Entertainment Tonight:

"I think Amber and Jason Momoa, in their moments in 'Justice League,' [are] going to give the rest of the world a flavor of what their own standalone movie could be. And that is just scratching the surface of what I plan to do. I kind of don't want to give too much away but know this: The spirit that I'm going for is like a classic sort of swashbuckling action adventure, sort of high seas adventure story. It's ultimately a quest story in the spirit of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' meets 'Romancing the Stone.'"

According to Bustle, Aquaman and Mera's story "starts off initially with them not quite clicking with each other." Wan continued:

"But then as the story progresses as they learn to try and work together, they get closer and closer. [...] 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."

We can't wait to see them in action. "Justice League" arrives in theaters on November 17 of this year, and "Aquaman" is currently expected in December 2018.
