Some few days ago, it was revealed that filming for David Ayers upcoming film Suicide Squad would begin filming in April 2015 in order to meet its 2016 release date. While speaking of the movie Mike The Film Guy gave a particularly interesting bit of gossip that suggested Scandal and DJango Unchained star Kerry Washington is being eyed by Warner Bros. to play Amanda Waller.
While Mike The Film Guy’s reliability is unknown and this is little more than a rumor at this point, it wouldn’t be too farfetched to say that this actor could play this actor. It wouldn’t be her first time dealing with superpowered beings as she played the girlfriend of The Thing in Fantastic Four.
Amanda Waller is the leader of the infamous Task Force X and a key component to the Suicide Squad series, serving as a sort of guide for the villains on the team’s roster. That being said, there is hardly any doubt that she will be in the film, there is just the matter of who will be portraying her. Until some form of confirmation is given, this has no validity, but would you like to see Washington portray “The Wall”?
Suicide Squad is set to premiere in summer of 2016
