At one point, Arrow producers were considering a Suicide Squad spinoff series that would have been led by Cynthia Addai-Robinson's Amanda Waller, but when Warner Bros. green-lit David Ayer's Suicide Squad movie those plans got shelved. This past weekend at MCM Comic-Con, Cynthia shared her thoughts on the upcoming Suicide Squad movie and the actress that is playing Amanda Waller.
"Oh, I'll be the first in line," the actress said. "I can't wait. I'm like super-pumped to see the movie and of course, I'm excited Viola Davis is going to be doing her version of Amanda Waller. And I'm very honored to even be in the same company, in terms of the other actresses that portrayed that character -- Angela Bassett, C.C.H. Pounder, Pam Grier. A lot of fierce, amazing women. And I know Viola Davis is going to knock it out of the park, so I'm gonna be in line with everyone else waiting for the movie."

Arrow airs on Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. Suicide Squad is set to be released August 5, 2016.
