We’re now about 9 months out from the release of David Ayers’ Suicide Squad. The film already has a lot of buzz, mostly because of the cast and the subject matter. This will be the first time that the villains are showcased in a superhero film and it seems that audiences are enamored with the idea. In fact, pirated copies of the sizzle reel shown at Comic Con this summer sent the interwebz into a tizzy and forced the studio to release a clean version, which currently has over 55 million views.
Yesterday, Jared Leto’s Joker jumped into the spotlight, gracing the cover of Empire in all of his messed up glory. Today, Empire has revealed our best look yet at the Enchantress, as she takes her turn on the latest cover.
June is an adventure seeker who’s always wanted some excitement, and she gets what she wished for, but in a terrible way. At the start of the movie she discovers a cavern and finds…something…within.
It sounds like June is going to be possessed by Enchantress, who is a magical entity of a villainous nature.
She’s an ancient sorceress. A feral being. She’s been trapped for so long and know she’s finally let out.
Which means that Delevingne will essentially be playing two different characters that have two distinct personalities. She talked about how she was able to differentiate them and what she did to get into her Enchantress character.
I’d gather the accent, which is deeper and posher than June’s. And I’d last Nick Cave’s Red Right Hand, that song about the devil. Also a lot of Megadeth. Just evil stuff.
This all sounds very interesting and it’s obvious that the studio is going for some pretty dark stuff here. We still don’t know how Enchantress, or any of the characters really, are going to fit into the film, but there’s still plenty of time for those sorts of reveals. The trailer alone was enough to pique my interest, but I will say I am interested to get a bit more info on these characters, as some of them I know absolutely nothing about. This project gets more interesting the more I hear about it. I just hope that it lives up to the hype and that we aren’t all sick of hearing about it when it finally comes out at the end of next summer.
Suicide Squad is set for release on August 5, 2016.
