SUICIDE SQUAD Adds Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Signs Margot Robbie to Multi-Picture Deal

By Amirose Eisenbach February 26, 2015

David Ayer's "Suicide Squad" is becoming one of the most highly anticipated films coming out of the aggressive and exciting D.C. film slate. Now we have two wonderful updates on the villain-heavy property.

First up, after a lot of evading the direct answer, Viola Davis finally confirmed that she is officially playing Amanda Waller in the film. A certain class will be accompanying her high-level of talent and the tough-as-nails demeanor of Waller.

It was also just revealed by Margot Robbie, who will be portraying beloved villain Harley Quinn in the film, that she signed a multi-picture deal to play the character. What a fun role to bring to life on the big-screen.

On the deal, Robbie stated, "Yeah, that's daunting. You don't need to have commitment issues to be frightened by the fact that you might have just signed 10 years of your life away....But with her, it's a character I don't think would ever get boring. Ever. So if they did Suicide Squad, "Two" and "Three," I would be over the moon about it."

Two strong and fantastic women, part of an incredible ensemble that includes Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as The Joker, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag. I just hope they keep the villains truly villainous and don't dilute them for the sake of making them easier to identify with. It's time we see a truly evil ensemble and this is a great film to succeed that with.
