She is set to star in Suicide Squad, but rising actress Cara Delevingne claims most comic book movies are sexist towards female superheroes.

The British model will be getting into character as Enchantress alongside Ben Affleck, Margot Robbie and Will Smith in the upcoming Marvel film, but she has a critical view of other big screen comic adaptations.

In an interview with Empire magazine, the 22 year old reportedly said: "There are only three girls in [Suicide Squad] but in my opinion they have the best roles. Generally though, superhero movies are totally sexist."

She added: "Female superheroes are normally naked or in bikinis. No one would be able to fight like that. Wonder Woman, how the hell does she fight? She would be dead in a minute."

Marvel fans would no doubt love to witness a face-off between Enchantress and Wonder Woman, however there are currently no plans for the latter superheroine, played by Gal Gadot, to cross over to Suicide Squad from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

The supermodel's movie career has taken off in recent years with roles including 2012's Anna Karenina, The Face Of An Angel and the upcoming Paper Towns.

Future roles for the model also include the anticipated Peter Pan reboot alongside Hugh Jackman and Amanda Seyfried, as well as London Fields, starring Johnny Depp and Billy Bob Thornton.

In May, the Burberry ambassador made it clear that she has always planned to swap the runway for the big screen, telling People magazine: "I've always wanted to be an actress, more than anything in the world. Modelling was never a passion of mine."

Suicide Squad is set for release on 5 August 2016.
