Now Viola has confirmed she only has one contender left for the part: time.

She said:

"I've read up about her but I'm working out my schedule for Suicide Squad."

So now that she's read up on the government agent that stands up to superheroes and villains alike, what does she think?

She's impressed! She said:

"I'm fascinated by her. I'm fascinated by her in this world of superhero-ness because she is not a woman that you would expect. I think that she is a massive contradiction. She's this big powerful black woman, hard, ready to pick up a gun and shoot anyone at will. I'm fascinated in exploring her psychology, just put it that way. And I'm excited to pick up a gun."

Heck yeah! We're excited to SEE her pick up a gun!

And speaking of guns, have you seen those arms?

She might as well pick up a Howitzer! LOLz!

Suicide Squad will be one of the first big DC expanded universe films, hitting theaters August 5, 2016.
