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.
Here 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.
Naturally I haven’t yet seen a movie that is still filming and I don’t read the current incarnation of the Suicide Squad comic book, but after seeing the cast in costume for DC’s upcoming Suicide Squad live-action movie — courtesy of director David Ayers — I’m glad this team’s mission is to commit suicide.
The roster includes (from left to right): Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo.
