Viola Davis in Talks to Return as Amanda Waller in Peacemaker Spinoff Series
Warner Bros. has announced that they are planning on expanding James Gunn‘s DC universe even further with an upcoming Amanda Waller spinoff solo series. Variety reports that Viola Davis is currently in talks to reprise her role for a spinoff series that will be set after the events that unfolded in the Peacemaker series.
Davis has portrayed the character in both The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker in a supporting role with her daughter, Adebayo (Danielle Brooks) joining the team alongside Peacemaker (John Cena) to fight off an alien invasion in season 1. Waller, as always, had her hand in the black ops team and attempted to manipulate the situation to her liking which eventually led to Adebayo whistleblowing on the Suicide Squad and other secret ops handled by Waller.
With the end of Peacemaker‘s season 1 killing the Task Force X project, it will be interesting to see Waller’s state in dealing with the aftermath. She is far from someone who is willing to just take the loss and is sure to use her influence to climb out of this predicament she finds herself in. It is definitely a concept worth exploring.
