Cynthia Addai- Robinson is appearing in the upcoming film The Accountant which also stars Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, and Jon Bernthal. Many would know her from playing Amanda Waller in The CW’s Arrow. Talking in an interview with Comicbook she discussed the chances of her playing a younger Amanda Waller in a future DC film.
“Oh man. You know, look, I am a huge fan of Viola Davis so I would not want to get into the two Amanda Wallers fight, I would give it to her, but again it’s been a gift to even sort of play in that world, and I like the idea that you know that I can sort of do both, that I can play a character like that who’s really larger than life and iconic, and then sort of get to do something like this where, it just feels a little bit more rooted in reality and a little bit more human and relatable, but all the Arrow fans, I always get a lot of love and I’m forever grateful to be a part of that as well.”
The Accountant hits Theaters on October 14 and Arrow returns on October 5.
