Behold This Disturbing Image of Cara Delevingne as Enchantress

Enchantress-Empire

After shocking us with a truly… um… unique image of Jared Leto‘s Joker earlier in the week, the good folks over at Empire magazine have come up with another stunning cover image — for better or worse — from next summer’s Suicide Squad movie.

Witness: Cara Delevingne‘s Enchantress!

So what, exactly, is this visual? It appears to be a photograph that has been digitally altered with software — what we in the publishing industry call a “photo illustration.” Yes, there has been enough digital surgery performed on this pic to actually attract attention away from Cara’s eyebrows!

So who, exactly, is Enchantress? Well, that’s a little more complicated.

In the comic books she’s June Moon, a freelance artist attending a costume party at an old castle who stumbles upon a secret chamber where the magical Dzamor empowers her to fight an evil presence in the castle. Reciting the words “The Enchantress” changes her from blonde June to raven-haired Enchantress, and allows her to defeat a minotaur. A few appearances later, she fights Supergirl, and June’s villainous side takes over for good. She mostly labored in obscurity with The Forgotten Villains (she was even whimsically nicknamed “The Switcheroo Witcheroo”), but her profile was raised significantly when DC launched its New 52 comic book line and Enchantress faced off against Justice League Dark.

Jared Leto’s Joker ‘Graces’ Cover of EMPIRE mag

jokerempireHere he is, in all his Clown Prince of Crime… um, grandeur: Jared Leto as the Joker in Suicide Squad, as seen on the eye-searing cover of Britain’s Empire magazine.

If you ask me, this is the dictionary definition of trying too hard!

I mean, does every square inch of him have to be tattooed? Does he need a cane?

Every time I start to think this production might be tolerable, some new piece of information is released that ruins it again.

Pretty sure this movie is going to suck.

The Battle Over Oscar (Sorta) Rages On!

Yeah, yeah, yeah — so Ellen DeGeneres’ “selfie” with Meryl Streep and about 100 other A-listers during last night’s Oscars telecast was retweeted so many times it “broke” Twitter. And, yeah, it’s a cute picture, as you can see.

But my favorite photo set came from the extraordinarily talented 2013 Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence and newly-minted Best Supporting Actress Lupita Nyong’o (for 12 Years a Slave), who staged a fake fight over the golden boy backstage (J-Law was nominated in the same category, for American Hustle.)

Bonus: That’s Best Supporting Actor winner Jared Leto in the background, talking to Best Actor winner Matthew McConaughey.
