The Joker And Enchantress Adorn New Empire Covers For Suicide Squad


As is the Empire way, the outlet unveiled the limited edition subscriber’s cover for its latest issue earlier this week, shining a spotlight on David Ayer’s Suicide Squad and, in particular, Jared Leto’s flashy rendition of The Joker.

But while the Clown Prince of Crime may be acting as the crux of Task Force X, he is by no means the only member, and today’s update from Empire Towers has unveiled a couple of new cover images, with one offering up our best look at Cara Delevingne as the Enchantress to date.


There are no shortage of fan theories littering the four corners of the Internet regarding Delevingne’s mystical and ambiguous character, with some even going so far as to say that she’ll act as the chief villain, spurring Task Force X into action when she loses control of her mind-bending abilities. One way or the other, as we learned earlier today, the Enchantress is described as “an ancient sorceress, a feral being. She’s been trapped for so long and now she’s finally let out.”

But there is a human side to Suicide Squad‘s volatile loose cannon: June Moone. When quizzed about the other side of the dark and brooding coin, Delevingne revealed that “June is an adventure-seeker who’s always wanted some excitement. And she gets what she wished for, in an terrible way.” So terrible, in fact, that it unleashes chaos for the rest of the motley crew? Time will tell.

Task Force X will be unleashed upon the world for better or for worse when David Ayer’s Suicide Squad opens in theaters on August 5, 2016.
