‘Su­per­hero films are sex­ist’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor-su­per­model Cara Delev­ingne (right), who will ap­pear as En­chantress in Sui­cide Squad, is happy with how her role has shaped up in the up­com­ing pro­ject, but says that su­per­hero movies are mostly sex­ist.

Talk­ing about the same, the 22-year-old English beauty raised a ques­tion against the out­fits that a lot of fe­male su­per­heroes wear, re­ported Dig­i­tal Spy. “There are only three girls in (Sui­cide Squad) but they have the best roles. Gen­er­ally though, su­per­hero movies are to­tally sex­ist. Fe­male su­per­heroes are nor­mally naked or in biki­nis. No one would be able to fight like that. Won­der Woman, how the hell does she fight? She’d be dead in a minute,” said Cara.

The film is about a group of su­pervil­lains, and also stars Jared Leto, Will Smith, Mar­got Rob­bie and Jai Court­ney.
