Angela Bassett lays down the law in Green Lantern

Mar. 25, 2010by: Dave Davis

So far, GREEN LANTERN has rounded up a solid supporting cast that includes Tim Robbins, Peter Sarsgaard and Mark Strong.

Now add sexy elder Angela Bassett to the list, bringing her inherent authority presence to the production to play Amanda Waller. Or at least a significantly more svelte version of the beefy DC Universe character, a government official in charge of Metahuman Affairs.

Is this WB's attempt to connect their upcoming superhero movies? The Waller character could theoretically be the Nick Fury-ish orchestrator who rounds up the heroes for a potential JUSTICE LEAGUE movie. Well, maybe they can at least use her for a SUICIDE SQUAD movie...

GREEN LANTERN is currently underway, with director Martin Campbell (CASINO ROYALE) filming emerald ringbearer Ryan Reynolds.

Nothing against the lovely Ms. Bassett...

...but why in the world didn't they cast Queen Latifah as Waller? It seems that everything Marvel is doing right, DC seems determined to do wrong...

Agreed, she should have been Storm. Looks just like her.

Her as Amanda Waller = Meh.

Waller isn't supposed to be some super sexy chick.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Amanda Waller a rather corpulent woman?

Awesome casting!

I am very surprised and happy that Waller is in the movie, the character is very interesting in comics and on Justice League Unlimited. And Bassett is an amazing choice, even though she don't has the weight of the comic-version :P

Sexy Angela Bassett

I'm glad to see sexy Angela Bassett may be working on a big project soon.

I hope that is a typo, because we all know Martin Lawrence had nothing to do with 'GoldenEye' or 'Casino Royale.'

Comment on JLA i think it would give WB a chance to recast Batman cause Bale and Nolan wont be back for a fouth.With Actors already in place in other roles,it would be a safe place to blood a new actor without him carrying the movie

Hehe Martin Lawrence.

Anyway, poor DC always trying to keep up with their big brother Marvel. Marvel has Nick Fury, they have Amanda Waller.

I have absolutely not problems with DC completely ripping off Marvel Studios business model even if it gets to the point of the Plastic Man and Giant-Man movies being exact duplicates of each other. Oh, that would be great.

but is she...

the one who rounds up the jl? i thought she was the one who led the anti-hero programme? any way, good casting, if they had cast her as storm then x-men would have been better.

Good news!!

This is more good news for the movie. This is another good case of good casting. I for one can't wait for this movie and think it will surprise alot of people in the end. I also think that this is going to be one of the most, if not the most trippy Superhero movie ever. I still think Watchmen is the most trippiest Superhero movie I have ever seen.
