Well, Cara Delevingne's film career just grew by a leap and a bound. Just hours after the model and aspiring actress closed out Chanel's Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d'Art show, Warner Bros announced that Delevingne has joined the cast of the upcoming DC Comics flick "Suicide Squad," along with a host of no-namers like Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto.

For those who aren't familiar, the Suicide Squad comics center on a bunch of jailed supervillains recruited by the U.S. government to help out with special missions in exchange for lighter sentences. Delevingne is slated to play Enchantress, an evil-leaning character enabled with magical powers. Also, she wears a kickass green outfit. For a model who's built her career on a personality that's sassy and playful bordering on disruptive, the role of an anti-hero whose abilities sometimes cause her to lose control sounds about right.

According to Warner Bros, Delevingne's vast and rabid fanbase will have to wait until August 2016 to catch her in "Suicide Squad." Thank goodness she has "Pan" and the film adaptation of John Green's "Paper Towns" — her biggest role to date — coming out in June.
