Just when you thought the movie Suicide Squad could get any better, the film goes and does something like this Viola Davis Joins Suicide Squad!
This film is going to kick butt when it hits the big screen because Viola Davis joins the cast that includes Tom Hardy as Rick Flag, Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevinge as Enchantress, and Jared Leto as The Joker.
Crazy and insanely Awesome!
The incredibly talented Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder) is rounding out the cast to play Amanda Waller. In the comics, Waller is a cold, pragmatic government agent who’s in charge of the Suicide Squad, a team of supervillains tasked with carrying out secret missions in exchange for pardons.
Previously it was reported that Oprah Winfrey and Octavia Spencer were also in the mix to play Waller (who was played by Angela Basset in Green Lantern), the studio goes with Viola, which we feel is a way better choice.
Obviously, Warner Bros. must have found a way to work around Viola TV schedule as she stars on the hit show How to Get Away with Murder.
Here is what CelebNMusic247.com is hearing from Collider:
Waller is a major player in the comics, so I assume that this isn’t a one-and-done for Davis, although Latino Review doesn’t mention whether or not she’s signed to a multi-picture deal.
Directed by David Ayer (Fury), production on Suicide Squad is set to begin in April for an August 5, 2016 release.
