Cara Delevingne’s got game — in more ways than one.
Case in point: Cara just landed a new role – that of a black ops soldier in the new Call of Duty trailer. It was a brief yet momentous appearance, a showcase of her effectiveness in portraying strong, edgy characters.
Cara Delevingne doesn’t appear until the last part of the trailer. Even if you don’t care much about Call of Duty and only want to see Cara, you should still watch the entire video. Guaranteed, the build up for that grand moment when Cara enters the scene is worth the trouble.
As reported in the Daily Mail, the official Call of Duty: Black Ops III trailer features Kevin, a pudgy and out-of-shape black ops soldier being awesome at war. Actor Michael B. Jordan, who narrates the trailer, said of Kevin, “What? Y’all didn’t know about Kevin? He’s a bad man.”
And, true to form, Kevin lives up to the billing as he dodges bullets with relative ease, performs amazing acrobatics ( running up the walls, for instance), and goes on a killing spree.
“He’s got moves that shouldn’t be legal,” Michael B. Jordan’s narration went as Kevin goes on with his nasty business while eating a sandwich on the side.
Football star Marshawn Lynch also made an appearance declaring that the “Beast Mode” is on, but was soon upstaged by – yes, you guessed it – the “untouchable” Kevin.
“Beast mode? No, bruh. It’s Kevin mode,” quips Jordan.
But surprise, surprise. While Kevin goes about his way just doing what Kevin does best — here, let Mr. Jordan narrate it:
“Kevin is king. Kevin is unstoppable. Un-“
Then BOOM. Cara Delevingne enters the scene in epic fashion, destroying Kevin like he’s nothing. Looking like this. Typical Cara.
And it has to be said: Cara Delevingne rocked those black ops duds. You can tell that the bushy-browed beauty means business, and Cara does it with a smile on her face.
The trailer then focuses on Delevingne holding up two guns while doing the rather-tropey walking-away-from-an-explosion bit. As the trailer ends, the game’s tagline – “There’s a soldier in all of us” – pops up right in the middle. Bravo.
Lately, Cara has been getting a slew of high profile roles in movies lately. The two-time Model of the Year has recently played the lead role for the romantic mystery film Paper Towns this year. Delevingne is also set to play the role of Enchantress in the superhero film Suicide Squad, slated for release next year.
Playing Enchantress might just be the edgiest role Ms. Delevingne has played of late, at least judging by the Enchantress image that will be gracing the cover of Empire magazine in December of this year, as reported in Hollywood Life. To call it “edgy” is an understatement as Cara looks almost unrecognizable in said image. Here, take a look.
Writer David Ayers revealed the cover photo on October 27 via Twitter, with the caption, “She’s making her own rules. #Enchantress @Caradelevingne @empiremagazine @wbpictures #skw.”
In the cover photo, Delevingne is wearing a black bra and underwear, which are overlaid by metallic mesh. Her body and face are painted. The crescent moon head piece on Delevingne bespeaks the character’s magical nature. It’s fair to say that Cara looks terrifying, that’s meant as a compliment given the nature of the character.
For those who are curious, Enchantress is a powerful sorceress and a villain in the DC Universe (Suicide Squad is a team of imprisoned villains forced to work on the side of angels). The villains featured in the movie are a very intriguing bunch, which include Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Joker (Jared Leto), Deadshot (Will Smith), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), and many others.
Cara Delevingne sounded pretty geared up for playing the role. In the Empire interview, she explained what her character (“characters” if one takes into account Enchantress’s alter-ego, June Moone) is about. Cara says of June Moone:
“An adventure seeker who’s always wanted some excitement. And she gets what she wished for, but in a terrible way. At the start of the movie she discovers a cavern and finds…something…within.”
Cara Delevingne then explains Enchantress as “an ancient sorceress. A feral being. She’s been trapped for so long and know she’s finally let out.”
Looks like Cara Delevingne did her homework. So don’t ask her if she read the comics, or you’ll share Kevin’s fate.
