Cara Delevingne calls superhero movies “totally sexist”
Over the past few months Cara Delevingne has been speaking with the press to promote her new film “Paper Towns,” offering-up candid interviews and speaking openly about her life as well asa her upcoming film projects.
Recently Delevingne spoke with Vogue magazine, she appeared on the cover of the June issue and spoke about her previous bouts with depression and anxiety, as well as her bisexuality. The magazine caused quite a stir in the online community when Vogue called Delevingne’s bisexuality a “phase,” but Cara’s most recent interview with Empire is stirring up headlines all on its own.
When speaking with Empire magazine Delevingne said, “superhero movies are totally sexist” and she’s not the first actor to come to that conclusion.
“Female superheroes are normally naked or in bikinis,” Delevingne stated. “No one would be able to fight like that,” she added. “Wonder Woman, how the hell does she fight? She would be dead in a minute.”
This comes just as Delevingne is filming the highly-anticipated film “Suicide Squad,” from DC Comics and Warner Bros. pictures. In the film Delevingne will be playing the role of the all-powerful Enchantress and even though Delevingne had some tough remarks on superhero films as a whole, she spoke favorably about her new film.
“There are only three girls in [Suicide Squad], but in my opinion they have the best roles,” Delevingne told Empire. Joining Delevingne in the film are Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Karen Fukuhara as Katana.
Suicide Squad is currently filming with director David Ayer and is expected to release on August 5, 2015. “Paper Towns” is set to premiere on July 24, 2015.
