WWE wrestler turned actor John Cena is currently under talks for a role in the Suicide Sequel which will be directed by James Gunn. The sequel will actually be a reboot to the 2016 suicide squad as the film had minted some huge amounts but it was not up to the critics mark.
If things work out and John Cena gets boarded by the makers he will be joining Idris Elba and Margot Robbie in the sequel. However according to sources it is currently unknown that what role John Cena will be playing in the James Gunn Reboot, before this it was also said that Idris Elba would be playing the role of Deadshot to replace Will Smith however the actor has dropped the role of Deadshot and has said that he will be playing a different role in the upcoming Suicide Squad film.
Talking about Margot Robbie she will be reprising her role of Harley Quinn and she will also be seen in the upcoming standalone film on Harley Quinn which is titled as ‘Birds Of Prey’ and Jai Courtney will be back to play the role of Captain Boomerang in the Suicide Squad.
However it has not been confirmed that if the film will be showing us the scenes from Part 1 or will they be totally ignored by James Gunn. James Gunn had directed the first two films in the Guardians of Galaxy franchise and both the films were huge commercial success however after some old tweets resurfaced from James Gunn twitter account he was fired by Disney but soon after that he was hired by DC to direct the film Suicide Squad.
Suicide Squad reboot will be coming out on 6th August 2021.
