On the red carpet at the 87th Academy Awards, Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder, The Help) confirmed to CTV’s eTalk that she will be playing Amanda Waller in David Ayer’s ‘Suicide Squad.’
CTV’s eTalk asked her if she will be in Toronto this summer to shoot the movie. She was hesitant to respond, but finally said, “Yes.” Her husband was more enthusiastic and shouted, “Amanda Waller is in the house!”
