Viola Davis is officially set to make her return in James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe reboot in the Waller series. However, could Amanda Waller also make an appearance in Superman: Legacy?
A recent Variety report dropped dozens of DC Universe bombshells, including rumors about Amber Heard’s treatment in Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom and confirmation that Zack Snyder’s Justice League will be recast. However, one notable detail many looked over is the fact that Viola Davis may appear as Amanda Waller in the upcoming Superman: Legacy reboot for DC Studios.
It certainly wouldn’t be a shock for Viola Davis to appear as Amanda Waller in Superman: Legacy. She had previously worked with James Gunn and Peter Safran on The Suicide Squad. The upcoming Superman reboot is also rumored to feature a conflict in the Middle East, which would certainly be something Amanda Waller would be interested in. The question isn’t if we’ll see Davis return in the DC Universe, it’s simply when.
Superman’s DC Universe Future
Superman: Legacy is a much-anticipated project, given that Clark Kent has been an integral part of the DC Universe for over 80 years, with various iterations and adaptations across different media. The movie promises to explore the character’s origins and his struggles to balance his dual identities as Clark Kent and Superman while fighting off villains and saving the world.
James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room, and a unified storyline across film, television, animation, and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
