Cara Delevingne: Suicide Squad star calls superhero films 'totally sexist'

While Cara Delevingne has said she’s “never been so excited to see a film” as she is for her upcoming Suicide Squad, the Paper Towns actress recently revealed she’s not quite so fond of the rest of the superhero genre.

“There are only three girls in [Suicide Squad] but in my opinion they have the best roles,” she said in an interview with Empire, as reported by Yahoo. “Generally though, superhero movies are totally sexist.”

The three roles would be her own part as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

“Female superheroes are normally naked or in bikinis,” Delevingne continued. “No one would be able to fight like that. Wonder Woman, how the hell does she fight? She would be dead in a minute.”

Delevingne’s recent comments echo what she told EW about the genre.

“I’m not the biggest fan of superhero films,” she said. “There are so f–king many. I love the Batmans but some of them I’m not that keen on.”

But Delevingne’s disappointment in other superhero films hasn’t prevented her enthusiasm for Suicide Squad. For more from Delevingne’s most recent thoughts on her character, head over to Yahoo.
