How has this not happened yet? John Cena is one of the biggest stars in the history of WWE and professional wrestling in general. He is now starting to follow in the footsteps of fellow superstar the Rock, who has taken over Hollywood. While Cena is far from that level of mainstream stardom, he might be in line for a spot in a movie that could boost his profile in a big way.
According to Variety.com, Cena is up for a yet to be determined role in the upcoming Suicide Squad 2 film. The original movie was a huge box office success, grossing nearly $750 million in 2016. Cena would be joining returning star Margot Robbie and fellow newcomer Idris Elba, whose character has not yet been announced either. The movie, with or without Cena, will be released on August 6, 2021. Should he be in it, this would be Cena’s first role in a comic book movie.
Cena is a Hollywood star but he’s still popping up in WWE. Check out his hilarious cameo at WrestleMania 35:
Opinion: Again: how has Cena not been in a comic book movie yet? He’s basically a superhero already and has all kinds of charisma. It seems like a perfect fit and now it might be taking place. This would be one of Cena’s biggest roles yet and could go a long way for his career. Hopefully he does appear in the movie because it’s about as logical of a move as he could get.
