Things are moving along nicely for the Suicide Squad movie. They have just cast their Amanda Waller Screenrant has announced.
it was reported that the filmmakers were looking to cast Amanda Waller – perhaps DC’s biggest badass without superpowers besides Batman – and Oprah Winfrey, Octavia Spencer, and Viola Davis were all being sought for the role. This was, of course, a pretty strong indication that Ayer was looking to adapt the more classic version of the character as opposed to the much-maligned New 52 iteration. Now, if the latest report is correct, Davis is very close to signing on.
So looks like the first appearance of Amanda Waller in Legends #1all the more valuable. Not to mention, they are going in the classic Suicide Squad direction, which means Suicide Squad #1 from 1987 will be hotter as well. Let’s not forget the Suicide Squads first appearance in Legends #3.
