For my second Suicide Squad profile, I thought I would do the character I would consider to be the least well known out of the announced characters so far, as well the one with, admittedly, the more questionable casting announcement. But I'll get on to that part later. For now, let's look at the character:
Real Name: June Moone
Alias: The Enchantress
Age: Variable (clearly), but in the movie I'm guessing mid 20's, due to the chosen actress' age.
Appearance: Blond hair, blue eyes as June. Black haired as The Enchantress, and also evil/very evil, with green robes.
Supernatural Abilities: Sorceress. Can manipulate magical energy for various uses, such as teleportation or healing. Can affect dead beings with her magic (resuscitation?). Can also walk through walls. Always carries a roll of duct tape on her person (apparently).
Equipment: Duct tape (apparently). Apart from that, none. Just magic.
My hopes for her in the movie.
I certainly hope they go for a version of the character where she can use magic, but is still somewhat sane, at least by the end of the movie. I also hope that, due to the choice of actress, she isn't just the "sexual allure" of the group, and the same goes for Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn.
What with the questionable (as stated before) casting of Cara Delevingne as June Moone/The Enchantress for this movie, not much can be said at the moment, as Delevingne has not been in many big movies. I have (attempted) to watch some of the short movies she has been in, such as one entitled "Reincarnation", produced by Chanel. Look it up. Pharrell Williams is also in it, and, well, at least he tried.
Much as she has not been in any big movie/TV series so far in her career, I doubt DC would cast someone unless they have total confidence that they will do justice to the character. So if DC have confidence in Delevingne, I think we all should.
How will this character fit into the plotline? The recent leaks show that The Enchantress is being experimented on by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) for use as a biological weapon of some sort. The Squad is sent in to get her out, or kidnap her.
This casting has been confirmed, so I really can't wait to see the interpretation of this character. This is The Enchantress' first live action debut. However she appeared in the animated film Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.
