The site Deadline reports that only a few small details separate actress Viola Davis to once again play Amanda Waller in a series with a more serious cut compared to Peacemaker.
Viola Davis joined the DC Extended Universe in 2016 as Amanda Waller first in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.
Davis returned to play the Task Force X project manager in The Suicide Squad, directed by James Gunn, in addition to making a brief cameo in Peacemaker.
In January 2022, James Gunn commented that this new project where a character from The Suicide Squad would return to action would be “connected to this universe, but it will not be like Peacemaker with his touch of comedy”.
Amanda Waller debuted in the pages of Legends #1 (November, 1986), and John Ostrander, creator of the character, took her as director of ARGUS and architect of Task Force X, a project better known as Suicide Squad.
