Viola Davis is supposedly close to a multi-picture deal to play Amanda Waller in the DC Comics Universe, of course starting with a key supporting role in Suicide Squad.
Sources for TheWrap have informed them of this information. Warner Bros. however hasn’t confirmed Viola Davis’ casting since it was announced she was up for the role. TheWrap reports as they’ve sent Warner Bros multiple emails requesting a comment on Davis’ casting, but haven’t received a comment back.
Davis though has spoken about the role and her place on it. It’s at least a given she’s at a very close stage to signing on or already has the role.
