Amber Heard is officially joining the Justice League, and the other ladies of the DC cinematic universe are psyched!

Amy Adams and Gal Gadot sat down with ET on Friday to promote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and they couldn't help but gush over the news that Heard has been cast as Mera in the upcoming Justice League and Aquaman films.

"I love it," said Adams, 41, who plays Clark Kent/Superman's main squeeze, Lois Lane. "I hope that we all get to work together at some point, because women, sometimes in these films, don't get to actually be on set together at the same time."

The Man of Steel star also confirmed that she'll be appearing in the two-part Justice League films, helmed by Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder. The flicks will feature Heard's debut as the sea queen opposite Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa, who'll star as Aquaman.

"I've met her before, and she's a great woman," Adams said of Heard. "I think that she and Gal and I are going to have a blast, if we get to."

Gadot makes her DC debut as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman and is slated for her own standalone pic in 2017. The Israeli actress is also psyched to have another woman joining the DC fold.

"I love working with women," she gushed. "I'm used to working with men most of the time and working with women is just so refreshing. I'm so happy about that, and I'm happy that Amber is going to be our new addition."

The 30-year-old actress is also excited to potentially reunite with her Fast and Furious franchise co-star, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who has been cast as the villainous Black Adam in Shazam!, another DC property set to make its live-action feature film debut in 2019.

"I can't tell you much," she added, "but I'm so happy that Dwayne is [in] Shazam."

"It's like, half suit of armor, half scales," the 29-year-old actress revealed. "It's strange... We're in the process of building it now, so it's coming along."
