‘Justice League’ update: Amber Heard’s Mera to have big role, Arkham Asylum featured

Director Zack Snyder is going to feature Arkham Asylum in the upcoming superhero movie Justice League and rumors continue to point to a bigger and bigger role for Amber Heard’s Mera, Aquaman’s spouse.

Lex Luthor is behind it all?

IMDb listing of the movie have been recently updated and now actors Bruce Johnson and Daniel Eghan as playing the character of Arkham Guards. This news do makes some sense because it was previously reported that Jesse Eisenberg will reprise his role of Lex Luthor.

It would be great to see more villains from the Batman rogue gallery and possibly a cameo of Joe Manganiello as Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke, the main villain for Ben Affleck’s The Batman.

Lex Luthor was last seen in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. He was confronted by Ben Affleck’s character Batman and then locked up in the Arkham Asylum.

Additionally, Comicbook reported that DC Entertainment’s President and CEO has confirmed that Queen Mera is going to have her screen debut in the movie. Mera is wife of Aquaman, played by Jason Momoa, will have her story arc like Superman’s love interest Lois Lane.

The cast is set with Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Ciaran Hinds as the featured DC Comics bad guy: Steppenwolf.

Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Diane Lane as Mrs. Kent will be part of the cast with (presumably) Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne. Newcomers are  J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko.

Justice League is scheduled to release November 17, 2017.

Justice League 2 was slated to release on June 14, 2019 but Ben Affleck’s The Batman will be taking the said release date instead.
