British beauty Cara Delevingne is enjoying a successful transition from supermodel to acting star, landing some very exciting roles over the past couple of years. One of the most exciting roles that Cara has landed in her acting career to date, is that of Enchantress in the upcoming DC movie Suicide Squad.
With a role in a superhero movie, Cara Delevingne has been giving her views on superhero movies as a whole and it seems that she has not been too impressed by them. Cara feels that, despite the fact the female characters in Suicide Squad are awesome, it is generally the case that superhero movies are sexist.
Delevingne explained to Empire, "There are only three girls in ['Suicide Squad'] but in my opinion they have the best roles. Generally though, superhero movies are totally sexist. Female superheroes are normally naked or in bikinis. No-one would be able to fight like that. Wonder Woman, how the hell does she fight? She would be dead in a minute."
With that being said, there are a lot more female superhero characters slowly but surely being brought into comic book movies, so it will be interesting to see what sort of direction they are taken.
As well as seeing Cara Delevingne as Enchantress in the Suicide Squad film, the other three female roles will see Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Karen Fukuhara as Tatsu Yamashiro aka Katana. Suicide Squad is being directed by David Ayer and is set to hit the big screen on August 5, 2016 in both the US and the UK.
