Fast 9 is coming for fans, and despite it kinda tanking in the Chinese box office (thanks to John Cena’s comments about Taiwan), American fans are pretty excited to see those fancy cars go vroom vroom again. The Rock is not in Fast 9, the first in a trilogy to end the whole franchise, but he might be back. That could give John Cena and The Rock a chance to finally meet on the big screen.

Cena talked to Geek Culture about the possibility of meeting Dwayne Johnson in a future Fast film. He would be all about that opportunity. There is also no guarantee that it will happen, but Cena is ready. It’s all up to the “Fast audience” at this point, because the series could grow from here.

“I don’t know if that’ll happen and that’s very much up to the Fast audience to decide. As the Fast saga grows and evolves, I’m excited for a possible moment like that but there’s no guarantee. I hope it happens and if the audiences around the world hope the same thing, who knows.”

We’ll have to see what happens. Fans don’t even know if John Cena’s character survives his debut in the Fast franchise. He certainly pissed off China enough.


We do know that John Cena will be The Peacemaker, a member of the DC Comics Cinematic Universe. There’s always the strange possibility that Black Adam might show up. After all, Zack Snyder already said that Black Adam might even find his way into the SnyderVerse eventually.
