In a recent interview Viola Davis, one of the stars of the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, confessed that she finds the character Amanda Waller pretty intimidating.

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Viola Davis talked about her role as Amanda Waller in the upcoming film Suicide Squad.

Davis, who also stars in the hit show How to Get Away with Murder, revealed to E.T. that she thought Amanda Waller ought to “be at Riker’s Island”. She was also asked who she thought the bigger badass was, Amanda Waller or How to Get Away with Murder’s Professor Annalise Keating. While it was a tough call, Davis said that that title would have to go to Waller.

“I’ve been doing my research on Amanda Waller and I’m a little scared because she’s really unapologetic. I mean seriously, it’s beyond ‘she don’t play’. She’s on the right side of the law, but really she should probably be at Rikers Island.”

Davis noted that Waller’s hard-line attitude intimidated her a little bit, but that she was nonetheless ready for the role. Check out what she had to say below.



Davis will star along side Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jared Leto (The Joker) and Jessie Eisenberg (Lex Luthor) in Suicide Squad which is set to be released next August.
