While the world's most fashionable stars descended on New York City for the 2017 Met Gala this week, Justice League actress Amber Heard decided to spend her time a little differently, instead choosing to work on her martial arts moves.

Heard has been honing her wushu skills for months as she prepares to play DC Comics' Mera, queen of the seas, in both the soon-to-be released superhero team-up flick as well as the upcoming Aquaman film. Now, it looks like she's finally getting the hang of things in the gym.

Heard showed off her latest villain-slaying moves in a new training video posted on her Instagram account.

"This is me at the [Met Gala]," Heard wrote in the post. "Minus the red carpet, gown, glam squad, friends, air kisses."

The actress also got into the May the Fourth fun by posting a back-breaking, lightsaber-esque, sword training photo in honor of Star Wars Day.

Fans should be pumped to see Heard in the forthcoming DCEU outings, as she's joining a cast filled with fighters. In particular, her Aquaman co-star Jason Momoa has also been spending a lot of time in the gym getting his ready for all the deep sea evildoers.
