EXCLUSIVE: Amber Heard on DC's representation of women and being "Ireland's national treasure"

The actress has some strong words about Wonder Woman and Queen Atlanna.

At the beginning of Aquaman, our aquatic hero is doing some good, but doesn't really want to get caught up in the politics of Atlantis.

It is only when Mera (Amber Heard) arrives and informs him that the upcoming battle may well decide the fate of the entire planet that he decides to do something about it.

Throughout the movie, it is Mera who guides and trains Aquaman (Jason Momoa) on this new world he's never been a part of, as well as saving his ass on more than one occasion.

Heard plays the character fantastically well, and when JOE sat down with the actress in the run up to the movie's release, she has some very strong things to say about DC's representation of females, and what drew her to this role in the first place.

We also chatted about everything from stunts, to heritage and ancestry, to being "Ireland's national treasure"... that will make more sense in the context of the interview, to be honest!

Check out the full chat right here:

Aquaman is released in Irish cinemas on Wednesday 12 December.

We were also lucky enough to chat with the movie's director James Wan, big bad guy Patrick Wilson, and the movie's hero Jason Momoa!

You can check those all out on the JOE YouTube channel, and you can watch the final trailer for Aquaman right here:
