Playing Viola Davis on 'Suicide Squad' Role: 'I'm a Little Scared'

Viola Davis is pretty much an all-around badass.

That's what makes the How to Get Away with Murder star perfect to take on the role of Amanda Waller in the upcoming DC Comics' supervillain movie, Suicide Squad.

The 49-year-old actress caught up with ET's Nischelle Turner about her latest role – and we had to know, who’s more badass: HTGAWM's Annalise Keating or Suicide Squad's Amanda Waller?

“You know what that's a tough one, but I would give it to Amanda Waller,” said Davis. “I've been doing my research on Amanda Waller and I'm a little scared because she's really unapologetic. She's on the right side of the law, but really she should probably be at Rikers Island -- that's just my opinion, Amanda!”

Davis will star alongside Will Smith (Deadshot), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), and Jared Leto (The Joker), who — In addition to his drastic hair transformation -- may have subtly dropped his Joker voice at a recent Thirty Seconds to Mars concert.

Yes, it's creepy. And yes, we love it!

Suicide Squad hits theaters Summer 2016.
