John Cena in Talks to Join James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad

-

John Cena (Bumblebee) is in talks to join the cast of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, according to Variety. While the trade says that it is not know yet who Cena will play, which character do you think it will be? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Idris Elba was originally going to replace Will Smith as Deadshot, but he will now play a new character in the film. The move leaves the door open for Smith to possibly come back in future films as Deadshot, since he had to leave the project due to scheduling and not creative differences.

Reprising their characters from the first film are Margot Robbie (upcoming Birds of Prey spinoff) as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.

The Suicide Squad has been scheduled for an August 6, 2021 release. Warner Bros. Pictures is hoping to start production this fall. Charles Roven and Peter Safran will produce the feature. Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder will serve as executive producers.

Directed by David Ayer, the first Suicide Squad also stars Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Adam Beach, Cara Delevingne, Karen Fukuhara, Jay Hernandez, Joel Kinnaman, and Jared Leto. Suicide Squad cost about $175 million and grossed an impressive $746.8 million worldwide.
