Ender's Ansible recently got in touch with a spokesperson from the Ender's Game film and has confirmed that Viola Davis will be playing Major Anderson in the film adaptation of the book.
According to EA, the character being played by a woman is not so surprising as "Major Anderson has been written as a female in previous versions of the script."
Viola Davis is a Tony Award-winning actress and was also recently nominated for an Academy Award for her role in "The Help."
What do you guys think? Can you play around with your head canon and picture Major Anderson as a woman?
