Actress Amber Heard shared a picture of break time on the set of the upcoming DCEU Aquaman, and I can’t stop staring at her glorious Mera mermaid-esque tresses.

Heard is pictured with Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa, and the movie’s director, James Wan (SawFurious 7). I am unabashedly psyched for this film and will happily devour every tidbit of info. Considering Wan’s background in directing both horror and action, I’m preparing for an Aquaman that could be as atmospheric and scary-intense as it is action-packed. Jason Momoa pretty much owns my soul and Heard, who is playing Mera, Queen of Atlantis, is sporting some incredible flame-red locks that look true to comic book Mera. GIVE ME THIS MOVIE PLS. (via

  • Very sad news: Joan Lee, Stan Lee’s wife of 69 years, has passed away at the age of 95. In the past, Stan Lee recounted how he met his wife, after he was supposed to take another girl on a date: “When I was young, there was one girl I drew; one body and face and hair. It was my idea of what a girl should be. The perfect woman. … So I went up to this place. Betty didn’t answer the door. But Joan answered, and she was the head model. I took one look at her—and she was the girl I had been drawing all my life. And then I heard the English accent. And I’m a nut for English accents! She said, ‘May I help you?’ And I took a look at her, and I think I said something crazy like, ‘I love you.’ I don’t remember exactly. But anyway, I took her to lunch. I never met Betty, the other girl. I think I proposed to [Joan] at lunch.” (via THR)
