If you're a fan of either DC or totally awesome people in general - and let's face it, most people in the world are contained within those roomy categories - you're probably excitedly awaiting Suicide Squad.

I've been stoked for Suicide Squad since the earliest announcement, and it's even better knowing that there are such cool people on board. British model/actress Cara Delevigne, 22, has been a vital voice for young LGBTQ people in the media, recently telling Vogue magazine how "being in love with my girlfriend [Annie Clark a.k.a. guitar-shredding musical Goddess St. Vincent, 32] is a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days."

Cara continued to spread positivity and love in a recent interview with DMA, affirming her stand for herself and others with simple happiness and acceptance:

"I’ve been pretty open about myself from the beginning. I think it’s wonderful that, you know, it’s being accepted more and more. I think everyone has a right to be whoever they want to be. So I’m just very happy."

As she was speaking to an Australian publication, Cara also had a gentle message for the Australian prime minister, the notoriously reactionary Tony Abbot, in relation to the country's ongoing struggle to achieve LGBTQ marriage equality:

"Listen to the rest of the world and carry on. Go with it."

Preach the love, Cara. Give out nothing but love, and eventually even the most hateful people will start to listen.

Sadly, you'll have to wait until August 5, 2016 to see Suicide Squad, but get your Cara Delevigne fix from Paper Towns, hitting theaters July 24, 2015. Or, you know, just cry or something.

After the initial anxiety and confusion within the DC fanship - some thought Cara was not right for the part of Enchantress or even wanted her to be Harley Quinn instead - it seems that the fanbase is on board.

She's gonna be awesome on the Suicide Squad. DZAMOR-SOME.


Cara Delevigne for Enchantress - a good choice?
