The very first image of Cara Delevingne in character as the Enchantress in upcoming film Suicide Squad has been released by the film's director David Ayer. Ayer tweeted "Task Force X assembled and ready. #SuicideSquad" along with an image showing members of the star-studded cast in full costume, including Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Delevingne. Not long ago, Ayer tweeted an image of Jared Leto as a half-scary (the teeth!), half-naff (the tattoos!) Joker, but this is the first time we have seen Cara in character.

As the Enchantress, Cara wears a black, straggly wig with a tarnished gold crescent moon headpiece, and a black and dirty-gold bodysuit with dark chain arm cuffs and dark, grubby face make-up. The Enchantress has been both a superhero and super villain in the DC Comics. A powerful sorceress with healing powers, she can teleport and walk through walls, but also has a very earthly practical side, always carrying a roll of duct tape on her person.

The Task Force X of Ayers tweet refers to the ensemble of characters, who are all villains from other DC franchises. In the film, the US government has recruited imprisoned supervillains for a black-ops suicide mission, in exchange for clemency. The line-up is Batman-heavy, with Jared Leto appearing as an updated Joker, Margot Robbie as a punk-cheerleader Harley Quinn and Will Smith as hired assassin Deadshot.
