Viola Davis as Amanda Waller was one of the few characters who continued their DCEU journey in James Gunn The Suicide Squad. After 2016 suicide squad directed by David Ayer was a critical failure, many characters were scrapped or quickly killed off in Gunn’s recent soft reboot/sequel.
Waller is a hard-nosed government employee, on a mission to bring criminals together for the greater good. As seen in The Suicide Squadher actions and motives are not always heroic and she works in the gray area of advanced individuals.
