Suicide Squad's Viola Davis Has A Three Picture Deal

Amanda Waller will most likely be sticking around after her Suicide Squad debut next summer.

Viola Davis, who plays Waller in the upcoming DC Comics film, has revealed she signed on for three movies, telling The New York Times, "This is my first big superhero movie. I signed on for three, so it needed to be a great experience. This was a role that was just there to be fun. It was a chance to work with Will Smith, you know?"


That doesn't necessarily mean Davis and Waller will be popping up in three Suicide Squad films, but it opens the door for her to appear in other DC Comics movies. Starting with Batman v. Superman in March, DC and Warner Brothers are teaming up for 10 (12 if you count the rumored Batman and Superman solo films) movies between now and 2020.

Of the planned films, there is a two part Justice League film which would be the first candidate for Waller's next two appearances, rounding out her contract. However, little is known about DC's Extended Universe, so we may end up seeing her in the rumored Ben Affleck directed Batman movie or even 2017's Wonder Woman.
