John Cena Eyed For The Suicide Squad

John Cena is reportedly in talks to join James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad” at Warner Bros. Pictures. It’s unknown who Cena will be playing in the project which sees supervillains assembled to stop a major threat.

Margot Robbie, Viola Davis and Jai Courtney are all expected to reprise their roles from 2016’s “Suicide Squad” while Idris Elba has been cast in the project. Originally slated to replace Will Smith as Deadshot, Elba instead is playing a new and still unspecified character.

Key characters said to be involved this time out including baddies such as King Shark and Polka Dot Man. Gunn is writing and direct the movie which is expected to go into production this fall ahead of an August 2021 release.

The project will be Cena’s first comic-book role.
