Cara Delevingne has slammed comic book movies for being “totally sexist” ahead of her role in Warner Bros and DC Comics’ ‘Suicide Squad’.

She made the comments in an interview with Empire Magazine in issue 314.

“There are only three girls in ['Suicide Squad’] but in my opinion they have the best roles,” she said. “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 would be dead in a minute.”

Delevingne also talked about her role as Enchantress in David Ayer’s 'Suicide Squad’ and her ability to control minds. Asked if that’s the ultimate superpower, the actress said: “No, I think I’d rather be able to anybody or anything, I guess.

"That’s kind of the ultimate acting superpower, and of course that’s like Mystique in 'X-Men’, but as well I’d like to be a tree if I wanted to, or a paper clip.”

Delevingne will star alongside Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as The Joker and Jai Courtneyas Captain Boomerang in 'Suicide Squad’ when it’s released on 5 August 2016.
