Amber Heard makes a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance in the latest Aquaman 2 trailer.

The film, titled Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, will see Heard, 37, return to her role as Mera, the wife of Aquaman, played by Jason Momoa.

The latest trailer for the blockbuster film teases plenty of action for fans of the franchise but Heard only features in a fraction of it as she appears for two seconds in the latest trailer.

The Queen of Atlantis can be seen in the clip for a split second thumping on a window before the trailer continues.

Nicole Kidman as Atlanna features prominently in the sneak peek of the sequel which also boasts Patrick Wilson, Ben Affleck, Dolph Lungren, and Jani Zhao among its star-studded cast.

It comes after Heard claimed her role was reduced following her highly publicised defamation trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Aquaman director James Wan refuted her claims, saying the film was never going to feature Mera heavily.

‘I always pitched this to everyone from the get-go. The first Aquaman was Arthur and Mera’s journey. The second movie was always going to be Arthur and Orm,’ he told Entertainment Weekly.

‘So, the first was a romance action-adventure movie, the second one is a bromance action-adventure movie.’

During the trial, in which a jury decided she did defame her ex, a petition calling for her removal from the flick reached 4.5million signatures.

While taking to the stand, Amber had testified that she was given a new script for Aquaman 2 with a ‘very pared-down version’ of her role. She also denied that she only got the role because of her connection to her ex-husband.

Walter Hamada, president of DC Films at Warner Bros, testified that there were fears of a ‘lack of chemistry’ between Amber and Jason and claimed there were talks of recasting her, rather than it having to do with the situation with her ex-husband.

Aquaman 2 is slated for release on December 20 after being hit with long delays in production.

Little is known about the plot of the eagerly-anticipated film, with an official synopsis reading: ‘Aquaman forges an uneasy alliance with an unlikely ally in a bid to save Atlantis and the rest of the planet.’
