According to the Hollywood Reporter, talks are ongoing that would see Cena join the upcoming movie that already stars Idris Elba and Margot Robbie in two of the starring roles for the film.

It’s unknown at this time what role Cena would play.

‘The Suicide Squad’ is a follow up to the 2016 film from David Ayer that followed a group of super villains released from prison in an effort to stamp out problems too dangerous for even the best superheroes in the world. The original film grossed over $746 million at the box office but it was a disaster with critics.

DC and Warner Bros. then decided to hire Gunn to head up the new version of the film after he had so much success writing and directing the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ movies for Marvel.

If Cena finalizes his deal this would be the first major comic book film for the multi-time WWE champion after past roles in films such as ‘Blockers’ and a recent role in the ‘Transformers’ spinoff ‘Bumblebee’.

‘The Suicide Squad’ will land in theaters on August 6, 2021.
