Cara’s Enchantress the big villain? Yes, please!
Suicide Squad is a movie based on the concept of a super-group of villains recruited by a government agent to defeat an even bigger threat, with the idea being that if they join forces, their collective villainy will outweigh the evil of one mega-villain. But who have they been recruited to defeat, exactly? That’s one thing we don’t know, although it is a little easy to suss it out from the footage we saw over the summer.
Using deductive reasoning, it’s fairly easy to figure out that one of these things in the Suicide Squad footage is not like the others. You may have noticed that Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress is the only character who doesn’t appear in the Squad’s full lineup, nor does she share scenes with the other members of the team. Heroic Hollywood also points this out, while adding an unconfirmed rumor about her part in the film: Delevingne becomes Enchantress during the movie and sets out on a mission to locate and resurrect her dead brother with the hope that they can destroy the world together.
In the comics, the character begins as June Moone, an artistic type who discovers an evil entity in a mysterious chamber and absorbs its power, becoming Enchantress. But it’s not long before June realizes that she and the entity are not exactly one — in fact, the evil being is a separate entity and one that is almost impossible to control, similar to Jean Grey’s Phoenix persona.
This new rumor seems very likely to be true, particularly given the way Delevingne’s part plays out in the footage. We see her exploring a dark cavern and taking a bath in mucky water with a pentagram scrawled over her head (typical Tuesday), and there’s one shot of a deranged-looking Delevingne in a grungy riff on the traditional Enchantress costume. None of the footage features the actor alongside the remainder of the Squad, though she did become a member of the team in the comic books, so it’s quite possible that they’ll help her get her powers under control and ask her to join up.
Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5, 2016.
Production for Suicide Squad has official ended and director David Ayer has posted a photo with the full cast and crew:

The Hollywood Reporter has released an exclusive photo with the actors and directors of WB/DC Comics:
Good and evil collided at The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive Comic-Con photo shoot with the directors and stars of Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC Comics adaptations.
Superheroes and supervillains collided — quite amicably, we must say — at The Hollywood Reporter’s top-secret Comic-Con photo shoot.
After stunning the Hall H crowd on Saturday with new footage, 17 actors, as well as directors Zack Snyder and David Ayer, from Warner Bros.’ Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad — together comprising the long-awaited first phase of Warners’ DC Cinematic Universe — zoomed off for what would be their first photo together.
While both casts appeared during Warner Bros.’ panel, they didn’t take the stage at the same time. So THR’s photo shoot was not only the first time that the two casts got together, but for many it was their first time meeting one another entirely.
Jai Courtney mightily shook hands with Jesse Eisenberg while Henry Cavill chatted with Will Smith, who introduced him to Jay Hernandez. Cara Delevingne and Gal Gadot posed for a selfie together.
Ayer and his Suicide Squad cast — Smith, Margot Robbie, Courtney, Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Hernandez, Adam Beach and Karen Fukuhara — arrived backstage first. They rushed to the craft services table, scarfing down sandwiches and snacks.
The group was on a whirlwind trip, to say the least. Ayer had been working on the film in Toronto until 1 a.m. Friday night, then woke up the next morning to fly with his cast to San Diego. They were in San Diego for a little under three hours before having to rush back out to the airport at 1 p.m. to head back to Toronto. Ayer, who was trying to convince his handlers to stop to get burritos before he headed back to Canada, needed to return to shooting second unit the next day.
Onstage, Ayer touted his villain-focused movie: “Who’s got the best bad guys out there? DC Comics,” he said. “I’m not trying to start no East Coast-West Coast feud with Marvel Comics, but someone has got to say the truth.”
The footage he showed was surprisingly dark in tone, but at the shoot Ayer told THR of the film, “The real shock is how hilarious it’s going to be.”
Smith, who was the only castmember to speak (if only a few sentences) onstage during the Suicide Squad presentation, relished leaving the crowd wanting more.
“This was just a little taste,” he told THR backstage. “We’ll see them again next year.”
If the movies are part of a big DC family, Batman v. Superman is the older, more mature sibling on which the weight of responsibility falls. Suicide Squad is the bratty little kid, chewing bubble gum and tagging walls.
Each cast has bonded in different ways. Loud and boisterous, the Suicide Squad cast was bonded by an attitude fueled by brashness and exuberance.
“We’re very much a squad,” said Robbie, with her co-star Delevingne joking, “We should start a dance squad.” Indeed, the cast was seen taking plenty of selfies together, laughing at inside jokes and throwing up their hands in faux-squad poses during the shoot.
The cast of Batman v. Superman looked on with bemusement, like they weren’t quite sure what to do with the family member that steals cars for a living. They were bonded too, it just showed in a more subdued way — like when Adams jokingly sat on Affleck’s lap when they were taking their seats for the shoot. But don’t let their quiet demeanor fool you: Adams photo-bombed Delevingne and Gadot with aplomb.
And while they may be only newly acquainted, there’s already a friendly rivalry brewing between the two casts, with the Suicide Squad group joking that they’d eat all the sandwiches before the Dawn of Justice cast got there. Affleck, meanwhile, joked that he wouldn’t be waiting on the slacking Suicide Squad to take his group photo.
Warner Bros. has released an HD version the Comic-Con trailer, and we can actually see Cara in this one.
Cara Delevingne along with the Suicide Squad cast made a surprise appearance at the Comic-Con on Saturday to introduce a teaser trailer from the movie. Here’s the video and pictures.
Here’s the trailer someone recorded with a camera phone, you can see a few glimpses of Cara as Enchantress:
I’ve added scans from the August issue of Empire Magazine, thanks Luciana for the scans! Cara talks Paper Towns, Suicide Squad and how she hates being labeled.
I’ve added scans from the Summer issue of Total Film magazine, which features an article on Suicide Squad:
One of next year’s most highly anticipated comic book adaptations is most definitely Suicide Squad. The film, about a group of villains who are tasked with secret missions by the government and starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto, is already garnering buzz thanks to photos released by director David Ayer and shots captured by paparazzi on location in Toronto.
Supermodel Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns) co-stars in the film as the magical Enchantress and says that it will be worth the wait for fans. “It’s f–king insane,” she says excitedly. “I’m not the biggest fan of superhero films. There are so f–king many. I love the Batmans but some of them I’m not that keen on. I’ve never been so excited to see a film and I’m actually in it. I wish I could tell you about it at all. The movie is going to be the best thing in the world. The camaraderie on set is insane.”
Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5, 2016.
