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...

It looks like GOTG director James Gunn's revamped Task Force X team has gained a formidable new member, as John Cena is in negotiations to join the cast of the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel.

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.
