Viola Davis is returning to THE SUICIDE SQUAD

Suicide Squad (Warner Bros.)

Here’s some exciting news to break overnight, TheWrap is reporting that Viola Davis will indeed be returning for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad!

Given the characters intrinsic involvement with Task Force X in the comics it makes sense to bring her back. Davis was yet another strong performer in the first Suicide Squad movie.

Though widely panned by critics the David Ayer directed movie grossed $325M domestically and almost $750M worldwide back in 2016.

Jai Courtney also recently confirmed that he will be returning in some capacity for the next movie in the franchise.

The Suicide Squad (aka Suicide Squad 2)is aiming for an August 6, 2020 release date.
