Warner Bros. and David Ayer’s Suicide Squad was certainly a divisive movie, and was pretty much lambasted by the majority of critics – though it does have its fair share of very focal fans. However, one thing even most of the film’s defenders have to admit is that the main villain, Enchantress, was bloody awful.
Cara Delevingne never got a chance to do much of anything at all as June Moon or her spookier alter-ego, but the biggest misstep was having the character gyrate like some kind of disco take on Gozer the Gozerian from Ghostbusters for her grand finale.

Like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad was a pretty divisive movie. One of the things many fans took issue with from early on were the costume designs, but concept artist Christian Lorenz Scheurer has now shared some very interesting new alternate designs via his official website. Those mostly focus on Enchantress, and her final form here actually looks a fair bit more impressive than the CGI heavy final version the movie itself delivered. Also below are some shots of The Joker and Harley Quinn which point to her escape playing out a little differently in an earlier version of the movie. As you can see, a drone rescues her and the villains later attempt to escape via a Midway City bridge. Alternate designs for these characters, Incubus (a villain most of us would probably prefer to forget), and the Enchantress' soldiers can be found by clicking below. »
Technology represents new opportunities for the creative industries, but that doesn’t mean the robots are taking over.
“Oliver Stone didn’t come up with Wall Street with an algorithm, it’s a creative business,” said Sunny Dhillon of California-based Vc fund Signia during Zurich Summit panel Breaking Rules and Disrupting Business Models.
Dhillon was bullish on the opportunities that a platform like Snapchat offers to those with IP to exploit. He noted one example of the Exorcist TV series offering a user generated content experience on Snapchat.
“This is voluntary engagement with an advertisement in a way we haven’t seen before.”
Dhillon cited a recent Wall Street Journal article that Snapchat reaches 41% of all 18 to 34 year olds in the Us on a daily basis; while a traditional TV network reaches only 6%.
