When it was announced that Viola Davis would be playing Amanda Waller, it came with a big caveat. Mainly that the actress had to work doing the movie around her busy schedule. Therefore, though it was believed she could take the role, it wasn’t fully finalized…until now.
She was asked at the Oscars about whether it was confirmed she would play the role, to which she nodded and replied, “Yes.” Funnily enough, it was her husband who announced it first by saying, “Amanda Waller is in the house!”
So there you go, another part of the Suicide Squad is confirmed. We’re almost to the point of a fully fledged roster, and they begin shooting in April, so prepare for more news as we approach!
