UPDATE: Three Actresses Eyed For 'Amanda Waller' Role In JUSTICE LEAGUE: BRAINIAC SAGA
Apparently, Marvel are interested in three actresses(whose identity you'll find after the jump) for the role of CADMUS leader, 'Amanda Waller' in Justice League: Brainiac Saga. We also have details on how Hawkman and Hawkwoman will be introduced in the movie. Check it out!
Latino-Review (who I would once again like to remind you have had pretty much all of their recent scoops confirmed by trades like Variety and The Hollywood Reporter not too long after dropping them) have revealed some very interesting information about Justice League: Brainiac Saga today. Apparently, DC are searching for an African Amrican actress between 40-60 described as a "PHYSICALLY IMPOSING MAN". The role? Amanda Waller, one of the main leaders of Cadmus (which seemingly confirms speculation that the organisation will surface in Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War). They add that, "in the film Hawkwoman & Hawkman work for Amanda Waller." However, that's not all! DC are apparently looking at Oprah Winfrey (The Color Purple) Viola Davis and Octavia Specncer (The Help) for the role, but no offer has been made at this point; they're simply three of the actresses that the studio are looking at. How do you guys feel about this news?
UPDATE: HitFix have some additional details on Amanda Waller's role in the sequel: "In "Brainiac Saga," Amanda Waller is the initial threat, the woman they're fighting at the start of the film. She does not have a major ongoing role in the film, but she is responsible for bringing Hawkman and Hawkwoman into contact with Justice League in the first place, since they start the film working either with or or the Waller. If you look at this like a James Bond movie, Waller's the bad guy they'll take care of in the pre-credits sequence before they move into the main story. Hawkman and the Hawkwoman have a complicated journey in this film, and the question of whether they're good or bad is one of the big things driving the movie overall."
