Oh man I hate it when I'm faced with impossible choices! Who makes the most ideal Amanda Waller? C.C.H Pounder was an accomplished actress even before the SHIELD which was by far the most bad ass cop drama TV show ever! In the SHIELD Pounder played detective Claudette Whims who was so smart she could probably solve cases that might even leave the Dark Knight scratching his cowl. And she wasn't lacking in the take no shit department either. To no surprise Pounder is the voice actor of Amanda Waller in the Justice League animated series.
Ah but here comes Pam Grier. Who doesn't know about Pam's career and how often she's played a no nonsense female character that proved to be as cunning as she was beautiful. As it turns out she plays Amanda Waller on Smallville.
Of course I have my own thoughts and opinions on the matter but I'd really like to hear from some folks out there first. As Checkmate's White Queen and Task Force X's operations director, Amanda Waller ( a.k.a "The Wall" ) is one of the most ball busting female authority figures the comic book world has ever come up with. And what makes the character even more impressive is that unlike power house woman like Wonder Woman and Power Girl she doesn't wear a costume or have super powers. Yet she manages in her own way to practically be as imposing of a presence. So the only real question is, in a hypothetical feature length Checkmate/Suicide Squad film which actress would be the better Amanda Waller!?
