According to Latino Review, two-time Oscar nominee Viola Davis will be taking on the role of Amanda Waller in David Ayer’s ‘Suicide Squad.’ I’m so glad that Viola got the part.
In the comics:
“Amanda Waller is a former congressional aide and government agent often placed in charge of the Suicide Squad, a semi-secret government-run group of former supervillains working in return for amnesty.”
It’s not a done deal yet. The filmmakers need to be able to work around her ‘How To Get Away with Murder’ filming schedule. If everything works out, she will be joining the gang.
