Those wanting an older, thicker, and experienced Amanda Waller, please look elsewhere. Arrow will be going in the direction of the New 52. Like the current DC universe, Arrow will be embracing that interpretation of the far younger and skinner version. TV Guide announced today that Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Spartcus) has been cast as Amanda Waller aka the Wall.
We reported a few weeks ago, that Waller will have a recurring role in Season 2 and will show up in episode 6 entitled: "Keep Your Enemies Closer". The episode is just the crowning point of what appears to be a Suicide Squad themed season with other alums Deadshot (Michael Rowe) and Bronze Tiger (played by Michael Jai White) will be teaming up to take down Arrow at some point in the season as well.
Arrow returns Oct. 9 at 8/7c on The CW.
