Well the speculation has now been brought to an end, over the casting of the majority of the characters of the upcoming Warner Bros. and DC movie Suicide Squad, as it has been announced who has been cast in most of the major roles. Unfortunately though, there are still a few of the characters that have yet to get cast, with one in particular being a very important character to the movie.
It has been announced that the Suicide Squad will see Jared Leto as The Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg, Will Smith as Deadshot, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang. However, there has not been an officially announcement as to which actress will play the role of Amanda Waller, although it does seem that it is a three horse race.
According to the reports, there are three fairly big names in the running to play Amanda Waller in Suicide Squad, and they are Oprah Winfrey, Octavia Spencer, and Viola Davis, all of whom should be able to pull of the character. It is nice to see that Suicide Squad is giving us the Amanda Waller that we know and love, rather than the slimmed down versions we have had of late, in Arrow and Green Lantern.
While we would be happy to see any of these three women playing the role of Amanda Waller in the movie Suicide Squad, it has been claimed that Oprah Winfrey is considered the favourite for the role. We should get an official announcement on the casting very shortly.
