Rumoured at first until now, Viola Davis has confirmed she will be playing the dubious Amanda Waller in the feature film.
Amanda Waller is the character in the DC Universe who is the head of the secret government organisation that is an advocate for the infamous Project Cadmus initiative, a genetic cloning experiment, where Superman’s DNA has been the top choice for their cultures.
Waller is also responsible for (forcibly) assembling the Suicide Squad to do black ops missions for the government where deniability is the desired outcome if things go south. Suicide missions, in other words
Also known to go toe-to-toe with the Batman, unflinching, Waller is definitely not one to be messed with.
Suicide Squad present cast includes Jared Leto as The Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.
