Amber Heard returns to the big screen as Mera, the queen of Atlantis in Justice League.

On Wednesday, DC Comics released the first photo of Heard in full costume, donning an elaborate bodysuit featuring green scales and a large headpiece. ET was the first to reveal Heard's role in the film back in March.

Director Zack Snyder also shared the photo on Twitter with the following caption: "Saw this hydrokinetic vision come out of the sea and snapped a photo with my Leica."

This will be Heard’s biggest role since settling her divorce with Johnny Depp. Her character, while only a supporting role in this film, will be entangled in a romance with Aquaman, played by Jason Momoa. But she’ll have a much prominent role in the upcoming Aquaman movie to be directed by James Wan.

Justice League will also feature Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.

Affleck recently opened up to ET about the highly anticipated superhero flick, and shared that he’s looking forward to seeing how the film is received by fans.

"It's fun, in one word," he said. "I hope you like it, I think it's gonna be a lot of fun."

The film wrapped production last week in the U.K. and gave Snyder another opportunity to tease fans with a behind-the-scenes video of the production.

Justice League will open in theaters on Nov. 17, 2017.
