BUMBLEBEE Actor John Cena Is In Talks For A Role In James Gunn's SUICIDE SQUAD Sequel
Though we don't have any details on which member of Task Force X he'd play, former WWE Champion John Cena (Bumblebee, Blockers) is reportedly in talks to join the cast of James Gunn's The Suicide Squad...
Variety shared the news, but they don't have any details on the the role Cena would fill. Obviously, he'd be best suited to a character with the power of invisibility, but we'll just have to wait and see what Gunn has in store for him.
The WWE Superstar turned actor will join returning cast members Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Boomerang) and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller). Idris Elba is also on board, but his character remains a mystery.
The Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters on August 6, 2021.
UPDATE: It looks like Cena might be playing Peacemaker.
Couple things I forgot to add on this:— Justin Kroll (@krolljvar) April 17, 2019
First this was the role originally intended by for Bautista but due to his massive work schedule, he had to pass.
Also I couldn't confirm but believe Cena would be playing Peacemaker in the film
