Viola Davis Reportedly Reprising Her Role as Amanda Waller in Peacemaker Spinoff Series
James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad included a myriad of characters that fans wanted the director to further explore, and following the Peacemaker spinoff show featuring John Cena as the titular character, it seems like the Guardians of the Galaxy director has found his next big spinoff story, and it will revolve around Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller.
According to Variety, the Oscar winning actress is reportedly planning to reprise her role as the A.R.G.U.S. director, who created the team of misfit criminals in Task Force X aka The Suicide Squad.
Davis has played the character in two Suicide Squad movies, and recently she was seen in the Peacemaker show, where at the end, her daughter Adebayo revealed to the world about Waller’s plans revolving around Task Force X. The Variety report states that the the show’s plot is currently under lock and key. However, it seems like the HBO Max series will showcase the implications of Peacemaker’s season finale.
The Emmy award-winning actress will be working behind the camera as well, as she will share executive producer credits with James Gunn, Peter Safran, and Christal Henry. The show will be written by Henry, who has already worked on a DC show, as she has writing credits for the 2019 HBO limited run series, Watchmen.
With the Waller show, Gunn continues to expand his library of shows and movies revolving around the characters of his 2021 DC movie. With Amanda Waller on the cards, it’s very likely that this won’t be the last, as fans would love to see more stories based on characters like Idris Elba’s Bloodsport and Daniela Melchor’s Ratcacher 2.
Other than Gunn’s Suicide Squad franchise, Matt Reeves has also been toiling away with HBO Max, with The Batman director currently working on a spinoff show revolving around Colin Farrell’s Penguin, and DC fans are excited to see what the two projects can bring to the table.
