Amanda Waller Is One Tough Boss In New ‘Suicide Squad’ Promo

Warner Bros. have dropped what we feel is the final trailer for Suicide Squad. The third film in the DC Universe is about a group of criminals whom the government uses to do their dirty work in secret, and if anything goes wrong, these bad guys are completely on their own.

The clip is just a minute long and entirely focuses on a major player in the Squad who works exclusively in the background. That person is none other than Amanda Waller played by How To Get Away With Murder star Viola Davis.

Waller is described as the puppeteer of the Squad. A secretive, badass, tough to crack agent, Waller is the one who assembles the squad in the first place. This clip does an excellent job of how truly a tough character she is and how well Davis has transformed herself into Waller.

Check out the clip below:

It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super-Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
