Could Amanda Waller Be The True Threat In ‘Suicide Squad’?

Even though we’ve gotten a full-length trailer and plenty of details regarding some of the characters in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, we still have more than a few unanswered questions about the film’s plot, mainly about what the Task Force X will be after. In the latest issue of Empire Magazine, the director dropped a pretty big clue about what Deadshot and the rest of the gang will be trying to save during their mission.

They’re after a high value target that they have to go in and rescue. When they make the attempt, they realize that’s not the end.

That sounds interesting. We’ve heard plenty of rumors about Cara Delevingne being the big baddie of the film, alongside the Joker of course, who will definitely be up to no good in this one, but what if the real threat lies within the actual team and more specifically, the leader herself, Amanda Waller? Here’s what Ayer had to say about that.

F**k good versus bad, Bad versus evil is a lot more interesting. And Amanda Waller is the worst there is.

The magazine also had chance to chat with Waller herself, Viola Davis, who opened up about her ruthless character, who at some point in the film implants “nanobombs” in every single one of the members of the squad to keep them from going rogue. The actress also revealed the title of one of the books she read in order to prepare for her role and surprisingly enough, it’s not comic book related at all.

She’s relentless in her villainy, when you look at her, there’s nothing that seems dangerous. Her only power is her intelligence and her complete lack of guilt. I read a great book called Confessions of a Sociopath, which was frightening but very helpful…
