Suicide Squad 2 Updates: The WWE icon-turned-actor John Cena will play the role of Peace in the James Gunn The Suicide Squad, and in the upcoming DC TV show, but who is he really?
The Suicide Squad, a Gunn kinda sequel to David Ayer’s 2016 sequel film, is expected to follow the lead of that movie by giving more DC characters under their first shot on the big screen.
As Suicide Squad introduced characters like Captain Boomerang and Enchantress to DCEU, Suicide Squad will introduce characters like Peacemaker, Polka-Dot Man, and The Thinker to the franchise.
Putting the spotlight on the lesser-known actors in such a big movie might seem like an understatement, but if anyone knows how to do it successfully, it’s Gunn.
The director directed the Guardians of the Galaxy, who were highly respected people in many of the movie theaters, in two hot films that delighted critics and audiences alike.
He will eventually direct the Guardians as the third MCU film, but due to Gunn’s shooting and re-hiring of Disney, he is looking into the DC world.
Cena, on the other hand, has seen his stock continue to rise in Hollywood, and if things continue to go well for him, he could eventually take his place alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the best actors who have managed to become the best men ever.

But to do that, you will need to stand out as a Peacemaker, and stand as a major part of The Suicide Squad. We hope you learned about the character.
It is unclear what kind of long-term contract, if any, John Cena has with DC and Warner Bros., but given how quickly the studios are greening the HBO Max’s Peacemaker TV program, they may be as high on him as James Gunn.
If so, Cena could have a long-term future in DCEU. That thinks he actually survived the Suicide Squad. Asked about this on Twitter, Gunn dismissed the idea, saying the presence of the HBO Max show does not guarantee that the peace activist will make him leave the Suicide Squad or not.
If the peacemaker does everything in the end without dying, it is not hard to imagine him succeeding at DCEU, on TV, in movies, or both.
If Cena’s Peacemaker proves enough popularity, it’s always possible for him to get his own movie, or at least focus on Suicide Squad 3, if that can eventually be done. For the peacemaker, and Cena, the future looks bright, so maybe he should invest in some shadows.
