John Cena has been raking in the Hollywood offers left, right and center, as the WWE wrestler has bagged two big-ticket projects! One will see John alongside Margot Robbie in James Gunn's directorial Suicide Squad 2. The other will have John either team up or against Vin Diesel and his family in Fast & Furious 9. While we still don't know which character Cena will be playing in the F&F franchise, the Bumblebee (2018) actor has spent a considerable amount of time shooting for the ninth installment in London.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 42-year-old actor got candid about his experience of shooting for F&F 9 calling it "amazing." The wrestler further spoke about how the global connection and respect that the franchise has with its fans is nothing like he's ever seen before. It allowed John to really look at the "absolute analytics of the project" through the people who have been working on the franchise for twenty years. "It really is a family atmosphere, there’s a lot of respect for the franchise, there is that expectation to deliver for the fan base, and it’s been like no other experience I’ve been on," Cena shared with EW.

"You kind of have to earn your respect in so many ways, but once you do you are absolutely, unexpectedly welcomed into the family. It’s been really, really special, and I’m very fortunate," John added.



Day 16! Grateful, Blessed and Inspired. #Fast92020
