Voice Compare » DC Universe » Amanda Waller

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Amanda Waller with sound clips and images.
Amanda Waller is a known foe (though occasional ally) of the Justice League whom made her comic book debut in Legends #1 in November of 1986. Amanda Blake Waller is a US Government agent whom has worked with several government agencies (which are very shady and either evil or VERY morally ambiguous). Amanda is well known as a strong-mannered woman (whose temperament does slightly differ in the storyline we are talking about here) and is almost always overweight (but whether she is mildly or very obese depends on the depiction) but she is always known as someone whom has no super powers but is a very brilliant strategist. While Amanda is generally depicted as an antagonist whenever she is involved in a story there will most likely be a lot of moral ambiguity in the story in which one of her most most (but not necessarily trusted) allies is none other than Lex Luthor

Today on the DC Universe VC section we take a look at this fairly infamous US Government Agent... AMANDA WALLER! Let us take a look here shall we?

CCH Pounder- CCH's voice and performance for the role was very suiting and felt very natural as well. CCH's voice work on the role suits Amanda's strong nature very well as it does work with how much of a highly morally ambiguous antagonist she is in the show (though I also liked on how her sense of character in the show over the course of the series). Anyways it is a fine example of CCH's voice work and of the voice work in the show.

Debra Cole- Debra's voice for the role is... okay, its not bad but its a bit too light for the role here. Though to be fair Debra's performance does suit Amanda's strong-mannered persona pretty well and is a fairly above average performance in general.

Sheryl Lee Ralph- Sheryl's voice and performance were also very suiting for the role as it suited her very strong and hard-natured persona rather well. (Which works well especially considering the fact that in this show she is a Warden of a Super-Villain prison.) Even though Amanda Waller has a smaller role in this show than on JLU, Sheryl's overall voice work here definitely suited the role rather well.   

Overall I am going with CCH and Sheryl the most with Debra at a decent second.

Going with CCH Pounder. She was great in the role and is who I think of for Waller. Sheryl Lee Ralph was very, very good, too. An equally fitting choice.

Definitely hoping CCH Pounder is seriously considered for Waller in the Suicide Squad movie.

@Snoowy Her or Oprah Winfrey. :D

@TylerMirage Oprah would be awesome as well. I'd love her for the acting chops, and I think she'd have more of an imposing look to her than CCH.

I'm curious as to why CCH never played a live action Waller yet. She looks plenty like her.

@HyperVoiceActing I'm curious too. She's a famous actress. I'm hoping she will if there's a "travel to the future" episode in CW's Flash

It's hard, as I still read the character with CCH's voice, but I'll give it too Sheryl. She adds more balls to the character.

Though in recent days, I've really come to love Cynthia Addai-Robinson's portrayal in Arrow.

I am giving this one to Sheryl Lee Ralph and to CCH because they did a awesome job

I'm going with Sheryl Lee Ralph. She sounds the most authoritative.

When I first saw the episode of YJ she was in, I actually thought it was CCH reprising her role.

Both CCH and Sheryl have exactly everything I want from the character. I can't choose.

CCH Pounder is my favorite. Sheryl Lee Ralph is great too.

@coolgeek176 Also I think Debra Cole is terrible.

I dont think Debra Cole sounds like the original character. I like Sheryl's version.

CCH was good, but I prefer Sheryl Lee Ralph personally.
