The Suicide Squad: John Cena In Early Talks To Join Cast


Variety is exclusively reporting that John Cena is in negotiations with Warner Bros. to join the cast of the upcoming DC film The Suicide Squad.

 

The 2016 film, directed by David Ayer, followed villains such as Deadshot, Harley Quinn, the Joker, Captain Boomerang and Killer Croc, who are forced into the service of the government in exchange for lighter sentences. While the film was met with mixed reception critically, it would end up making $745m worldwide on its $175m budget.

 

In October of last year it was reported that James Gunn, after his firing from Guardians of the Galaxy 3 that summer over tweets from 2008 and 2009 resurfaced in which he made insensitive and controversial jokes, was brought on board by Warner Bros. to write the script for the Suicide Squad sequel.

 

The report doesn’t state what role John Cena (whose credits include Blockers and Bumblebee) could be playing in the film. He’ll be joining Margot Robbie and Idris Elba, whilst it’s also been reported around media circles in recent weeks that Jai Courtney and Viola Davis look set to reprise their roles, while Joel Kinnaman is keen on a return as well.

 

The Suicide Squad is scheduled for cinematic release on the 6th August 2021.
