While John Cena hasn't officially confirmed that he'd be joining James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, he seems to be dropping some hints.
Rumors of Cena's involvement in The Suicide Squad have been floating around for some time, and he recently told TheWrap that being in the film “would be a tremendous opportunity for growth.” He then seemingly teased his involvement, saying, "You have to get everything buttoned up before you can make it official, I don’t want to say anything … I will just say that if that opportunity presents itself, then I will be very grateful to take it."
The Suicide Squad is a film surrounded with rumors. It was once thought that Idris Elba would be taking over Will Smith's role of Deadshot, though it was revealed Elba would be playing a different role. Bencio del Toro, who played the Collector in several MCU movies, is also rumored to have a role in The Suicide Squad.
Cena will be taking the place of Jeff Foxworthy as the host of Fox's Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? He will also be joining the cast of Fast & Furious 9.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters Aug. 6, 2021.
