Director David Ayer teased what he wanted Enchantress to look like in his original version of Suicide Squad.

While many fans are still hoping to see the original version of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad cut sometime in the future, the director recently teased what he had planned for Cara Delevigne’s Enchantress in the supervillain movie. It’s not the first time Ayer’s discussed his original vision for the DC movie, most recently revealing that Katana was set to have a much larger role in it. The director spotted a fan on Twitter discussing concept art from Suicide Squad when he teased what he wanted from Enchantress.

In the thread of different concept designs from Suicide Squad, there are a number of different costumes for Cara Delevigne’s Enchantress. The one seen below shows off a mystical, ethereal version of the villain. Her towering form looks closer to what Incubus looked like in the theatrical cut of the film. Director David Ayer quoted the tweet and said this glowing design is what he imagined for the villain, instead of just being a creepy witch whose voice went a little weird at times. Take a look below.
