Any true DC fans knows the importance of Amanda Waller, she’s the head of ARGUS (or Cadmus if you watched Justice League Unlimited), she’s tough as nails, and her reach is vast. So when Suicide Squad was announced, fans wanted an actress to play Waller that could deliver what they expected for the character.
Thankfully, it appears our desires will be fulfilled, as Viola Davis is apparently REALLY close to signing up to be Amanda Waller. But the plus here is that it won’t be just for the Suicide Squad movie, true to character, she’ll appear in multiple films of the current DC slate.
It’s unclear at present how many, or which films she could appear in. But it wouldn’t be a stretch to think she’ll appear in the two-part Justice League, and certainly some of the solo films.
