When the cast for Warner Bros. and director David Ayer’s Suicide Squad was officially announced, there was one major role from the DC supervillain ensemble unfilled in Amanda Waller, the Director of A.R.G.U.S., and head of Task Force X.
Initial reports suggested that Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Oprah Winfrey were up for the part, with Latino-Review then stating that Davis had secured the role. Well, it looks like that report was on the money, as Davis has now confirmed to Nerd Report that she has signed on to the project, but is yet to start reading up on the character.
“I have not started reading [the comics] yet. I’ve read up about her but I’m working out my schedule for Suicide Squad… I’m fascinated by her. I’m fascinated by her in this world of superhero-ness because she is not a woman that you would expect. »

“Scott, I’ve been watching you for a while now. You’re different. Now, don’t let anyone tell you that you have nothing to offer.” Ant-Man may feature a superhero who can shrink to microscopic sizes, but that unique ability could expand Marvel’s cinematic universe in a big way. Marvel has released the first trailer for Ant-Man, featuring a lot of screen time for Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, while also teasing an impressive supporting cast.
Press Release – “Set for release in the United States on July 17, 2015, the film is directed by Peyton Reed (“Bring it On,” “The Break-Up”) and stars Paul Rudd (“I Love You Man,” “Role Models”) as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, and Michael Douglas (“Behind The Candelabra,” “Wall Street”) as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym and Evangeline Lilly (“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” “Lost”) as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym.

Movie stars didn’t shine as brightly in 2014.
It was a year in which the big draws were Captain America, Star Lord and various CGI Transformers, giant reptiles and talking apes. The people who wore the masks or shared the screen with these special effects wonders were almost incidental.
With a few exceptions, those films that depended largely on the names above the title floundered last year, raising doubts about the value of some of Hollywood’s best-compensated men and women.
If the definition of star power is opening a picture, then Johnny Depp flunked the test with “Transcendence,” Robert Downey Jr. whiffed with “The Judge,” Adam Sandler fumbled with “Blended,” George Clooney erred with “Monuments Men,” Christian Bale blundered with “Exodus: Gods & Men” and Tom Cruise missed the mark with “Edge of Tomorrow.”
Their box office disappointments sent many of the actors in question scurrying back to their franchise mainstays. »
