@Sa'ad: Read the New 52 bro, her character's totally been revamped.


Total miscast.... She's too young to play Amanda Waller. In the past all of the iterations of Amanda Waller were played by older actresses... Even the bio for her is that she is a middle aged person. I don't know which direction they are going with this but I hope they don't screw it up...


I have a feeling the entire cast of Spartucus and most of recent iterations of Dr. Who (waiting on the companions to start showing up) are going to play at least recurring roles on this show. We really should be looking at one of those shows to figure out who Barry Allen is going to be...
