HBO Max Developing 'Peacemaker' Spinoff With Viola Davis


Recommended Posts

HBO Max is developing a Peacemaker and Suicide Squad spinoff series featuring the supervillain Amanda Waller with Viola Davis to star and executive produce.

Watchmen writer Christal Henry will write and executive produce the series with James Gunn and Suicide Squad producer and Peacemaker executive producer Peter Safran.

In Gunn’s Suicide Squad and Peacemaker universe, Amanda Waller is a senior civil servant and director of A.R.G.U.S. who established Suicide Squad, wanting to assemble a team of expendable metahumans who would be used to execute covert operations against dangerous threats.

I'm going to be watching it, too. I'm guessing it will be a little more serious than Peacemaker though, not that Peacemaker didn't have heavy moments.

Now this is a great idea. I always liked the portrayal of Amanda Waller-much more realistic than what comics/tv etc. usually show female agents and cops like- 20-30 something year old runway models (nothing against them but frankly they wouldn't have the knowledge or experience to really be in those fields). Loved CCH Pounder's voice acting for Waller on the JLA animated series (and she could do a great on-screen version too). Viola Davis is an EXCELLENT casting choice as well!
