The Suicide Squad’s John Cena says he is “ready, willing & able” to struggle former WWE rival, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, in a DC Extended Universe film.
The Suicide Squad’s John Cena says he’s able to struggle former WWE rival, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, in a DC Extended Universe film. Best recognized for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, author/director James Gunn is bringing a really completely different group of misfits to the DCEU by way of The Suicide Squad on August sixth. As a sequel and non secular reboot to its 2016 counterpart, The Suicide Squad welcomes newcomers to Task Force X, together with Cena’s “douchey Captain America,” Peacemaker.
As seen in numerous promotional materials, Peacemaker doesn’t care what number of “men, women, or children he needs to kill” within the identify of peace, justice, and the American manner. Both Cena and Gunn are clearly having quite a lot of enjoyable with the function as Cena has been sporting his costume all over the place, and Gunn helmed a Peacemaker prequel/spinoff collection—which can premiere on HBO Max in early 2022. It would appear that Warner Bros. is cementing Peacemaker as part of the bigger, albeit, inconsistent DCEU, despite Gunn not knowing The Suicide Squad’s place within it.
In an interview with ComicBook, Cena stated he thinks a DCEU confrontation between his Peacemaker and Johnson’s Black Adam is inevitable. While admitting his character doesn’t actually stand an opportunity in opposition to Black Adam, Cena stated he’d like to struggle his former co-worker on-screen down the road. Read Cena’s full response when requested a couple of potential showdown under:
“You know me. Ready, willing, and able. And answering the phone whenever it rings. I’m good,” said Cena. “I believe that the joy is beginning to construct with followers, whether or not you speak concerning the dialog of Fast, otherwise you discuss now the DC Universe. I do not need to say we’re on a crash course and it is inevitable. I need to, as a result of I’m a fan. But we’ll see. We’ll see what occurs. Tell me what he says.”
Cena not too long ago wrapped filming on Peacemaker and Johnson completed Black Adam earlier this month. On prime of that, Cena performed Dominic Toretto’s (Vin Diesel) long-lost brother in F9: The Fast Saga, a franchise Johnson helped to revive however has since left behind. Johnson has been hooked up to the function of Teth-Adam/Black Adam lengthy earlier than Cena ever put a bathroom seat on his head. As an Egyptian slave who’s granted superpowers by the traditional wizard, Shazam, Black Adam is one in all DC’s strongest characters. Originally, Johnson’s character was imagined to cameo in Shazam! however he’ll as an alternative be launched in the origin movie set for a 2022 release.
Peacemaker will discover its titular character’s origin story as nicely. Given Gunn’s previous statements regarding The Suicide Squad’s death toll, Cena’s feedback bode nicely for his character’s survival. As Cena and Johnson’s careers look like on a collision course, it’s definitely simple to think about Peacemaker and Black Adam (briefly) butting heads. While the previous is all about peace, the latter has a historical past of being a tyrant. However, each characters kill at will. Black Adam’s antics will result in an encounter with the Justice Society of America and presumably spearhead a brand new chapter for the DCEU, whether or not his movie is a part of the SnyderVerse or not. Johnson has beforehand expressed a want to struggle Henry Cavill’s Superman—who would show a a lot fiercer, but much less humorous opponent than Cena’s Peacemaker.
