16-time world champion John Cena has joined yet another major franchise in Hollywood as director James Gunn announced via Twitter the new cast of the upcoming Suicide Squad movie and Cena’s name was at the very top of the list.
The tweet included the words “Don’t get too attached,” a hint that not everyone will make it out of the movie alive.
This is Cena’s first movie in the DC Comics universe and he will join others such as Idris Elba, Michael Booker, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Peter Capaldi and more in the cast.
The new Suicide Squad movie is scheduled to be released on August 6, 2021 and it’s the third movie in the Suicide Squad franchise. Cena’s role has not been revealed but Variety reported a few months ago that rumors are he would be playing the character of Peacemaker.
Cena will also be part of the Fast & Furious 9 movie.
