The Joker and Enchantress Show Off Some Tricks in New ‘Suicide Squad’ Promos [SDCC 2016]
Aside from a few brief glimpses in the trailers, we haven’t seen much of Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress in Suicide Squad. The mystical and mysterious villain is the subject of one of two new promos for David Ayer’s upcoming DC super-villain film, while the other…well, he doesn’t really need an introduction.
Enchantress takes the spotlight in the new clip above, in which Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller has Delevingne put on a little magic show for a room full of special agents. It’s the first time we’ve gotten to see how the character transforms into her sinister alter ego, and it looks pretty cool. And it’s hard not to smile when Davis ends the clip with “Get it, girl.”
Speaking of which…the next promo is all about The Joker, and it does a solid job of showing off Jared Leto’s wacky and strangely unnerving new take on the classic Batman villain. Despite early reservations about the costuming — which has drawn comparisons to Juggalos, Hot Topic shoppers and Nu Metal band members — there’s something oddly alluring about whatever the hell Leto is doing here:
In spite of those dumb face tats and that silly grill, Leto’s Joker is winning me over — at least as far as the marketing is concerned. We’ll see how well he pulls this off in a couple of weeks.
