A sequel to the hit 2016 film Suicide Squad has been in the pipeline for quite sometime now and talks about the film's casting often makes news. While reports of professional wrestler and actor John Cena being roped in for a role have been rife, the actor isn’t quite ready to confirm his entry as yet. The film will mark Cena's first comic-book role. Cena made his foray into acting after years as one of the top WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) stars. 

Speaking about his inclusion in Suicide Squad, John Cena said, "You have to get everything buttoned up before you can make it official, I don’t want to say anything … I will just say that if that opportunity presents itself, then I will be very grateful to take it," reported Cinema Blend. Earlier, the wrestler had said that it would be 'tremendous opportunity for growth,” when quizzed about doing the film.  

Directed and written by James Gunn, the film is scheduled to hit the theatres on August 6, 2021. It will see Margot Robbie returning in her role as Harley Quinn. However, actor Will Smith is likely to be replaced by Idris Elba. It was first reported that the studio Warner Bros decided to have Elba play a brand-new character instead of taking on Deadshot, a character portrayed by actor Will Smith. 

It is currently unknown the characters these stars will be playing. Cena's latest big-screen roles include 'Blockers, alongside Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz. He was also seen in movies including Transformers spinoff 'Bumblebee' with Hailee Steinfeld.
