With the lovely Cara Delevingne playing Enchantress in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, it looks like she’s pulling no punches when it comes to preparation for the role.

Enchantress in the DC Comics has two very distinct personalities – the kind June Moone and the evil Enchantress who commands dark magic and, if rumours are to be believed, is a weapon sought by Lex Luthor.

According to The Daily Star (yes, we know): “Cara’s character has a split personality so the role is a real challenge for her. She’s dedicated to doing her research for the movie and has been seeing her psychotherapist every day. Her character is very dark so she has a lot to learn about the way to act. To her, it’s hilarious because in real life she’s really cheery and laid-back, so she is struggling with the idea of playing a character so opposite.”

There’s no doubt playing a character like Enchantress could be real challenge for an actress, so we certainly wouldn’t rule this out.

In other Suicide Squad news…

The Wrap are reporting that Jay Hernandez is in negotiations to join the cast too.

And, although there’s no word on who his character is, it’s believed he could be an inmate on Joker’s cellblock.

Hernandez (below) is best known for his work in Peter Berg’s Friday Night Lights and Eli Roth’s Hostel.

Will Smith, Joel Kinnaman, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Jared Leto and Viola Davis are already on board the movie.

Suicide Squad will land in theaters Aug. 5, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
