John Cena is a 16-time World Champion and carried the company on his back throughout the PG era. From 2017 John Cena became a part-timer in WWE and has appeared sporadically due to his busy schedule in Hollywood.
2016’s Suicide Squad film was written and directed by David Ayer. Despite being a Box Office success, grossing over $740 million at the worldwide box office. the film was panned by both fans and critics.
This ultimately led to James Gunn taking charge of The Suicide Squad which is said to be a ”soft reboot” of the 2016 film. The film stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, John Cena as Peacemaker, Sylvester Stallone as King Shark and more.
With James Gunn directing the film, many fans believe that it will be similar to Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy film series, which is also by James Gunn.
John Cena certainly believes there are differences between the two. While speaking to ComicBook.com, John Cena was asked if the ‘James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy but for DC” comparisons was accurate. Cena would then go on to explain how the two film franchises differ in great detail.
“Yeah. So I bet you if they locked the door in this son of a bitch right now, and they kept us here for a month, we’d somehow find a way to co-exist. So I think you can say that for any dynamic. In Suicide Squad, they’re put in penitentiary situations. Even in the penitentiary, where people are there to correct moral wrongdoing, they make a dichotomy, they have sides. So to say that people don’t get along, correct. But then they’re putting in a set of circumstances where the other option is not existing. So if you are faced with death, we’ll get along. And I think that’s an interesting, like that drives the narrative forward really tight. And that’s very well-defined. So I think that’s a cool kind of way to make it.”
Many fans are also wondering whether the film will redeem itself after the abysmal prequel movie. We will have to see how the film turns out to be as it is set to release on August 6th, 2021.
