Cara Delevingne (Rightfully) Claims ‘Superhero Movies Are Totally Sexist’

Cara Delevingne is starring in the most anticipated superhero movie of 2016, but that doesn’t make her any less critical of the movie genre as a whole.

The Paper Towns actress said in an interview with Empire, “There are only three girls in [Suicide Squad] but in my opinion they have the best roles. Generally though, superhero movies are totally sexist.”

She added “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 would be dead in a minute.”

Seriously, though, we see her point.

Wonder Woman is set to be released in 2017, starring Gal Gadot, by the way, and is the superhero movie with a female lead that we’ve all been waiting for (and frankly, that we all need).

Delevingne had previously expressed the same sentiment on the genre to EW. “I’m not the biggest fan of superhero films,” she said. “There are so f–king many. I love the Batmans but some of them I’m not that keen on.”

That being said, she added, “I’ve never been so excited to see a film and I’m actually in it. I wish I could tell you about it at all.”

Meanwhile, here’s what Delevingne and co. are set to look like:

They look fantastic.

Delevingne, who’s playing the villain Enchantress in Suicide Squad, stars alongside other female leads Karen Fukuhara as Katana and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

Other A-list leads include Viola Davis, Jared Leto, Ben Affleck, Jai Courtney, Scott Eastwood, and Will Smith.
