James Gunn’s The suicide squad trailer has finally arrived and to many fans, John Cena stood out with his role as Peacemaker. Friday, Gunn dropped the trailer for The suicide squad prior to its release this summer, and the footage quickly had the film trending on social media. The new trailer gives us a look at many of the standout characters from the DC movie, including Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Idris Elba as Bloodsport, and Sylvester Stallone as King Shark.
Still, some fans say it is John Cena who steals the show as the patriotic vigilante Peacemaker. This is partly due to a line of dialogue in the trailer with Cena explaining how far he would go to protect the freedom of the American people. It’s a bit too vulgar to repeat here literally, but the scene had a lot of fans laughing out loud, convincing them that Cena would be the pinnacle of the blockbuster movie’s all-star cast.
“Smothered in my coffee at the John Cena bit on the beach,” writes a fan on Twitter, adding that “this looks great.”
John Cena /Peacekeeper with the best line in the whole trailer, ”says another fan, posting a clip of the scene.
Another tweet reads, “John Cena proved in that two minute trailer, where he had limited lines, that he deserved that HBO Max spin-off.”
“No secret why HBO is already working hard on a Peacemaker series. @JohnCena is going to steal the film,” also tweeted stand-up comedian Chris Killian.
Another fan agrees, tweeting, “This is going to be really hilarious, John Cena is already looking forward to stealing the movie.”
“So it looks like my first DCEU movie I watch will be Suicide SquadIt’s cheating for sure, but John Cena, ”says another tweet.
Another Cena fan is quite critical of the trailer, although he still praises Cena by tweeting, “The only thing that looks remotely funny is John Cena. James Gunn just isn’t really doing it for me at all.”
On his own Twitter account, John Cena posted his new character poster The suicide squad just before the trailer’s release, fans are telling them to “hold on to your peace-loving pants.” The WWE legend also said of the new trailer itself, “This one may need some ‘hands over the ears’ for a younger audience … but #Peacemaker is up for duty. Duty of all kinds.”
As of now, Cena is the only cast member of The suicide squad to have its own spin-off in active development. He returns in the role for the eight-episode series Peacekeeper on HBO Max in early 2022. James Gunn wrote the series and will direct the pilot and several additional episodes. It is not yet clear from what other characters The suicide squad appears in the series.
Before then, we’ll meet Cena as Peacemaker when The suicide squad releases this summer. In addition to Cena, the film also stars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Peter Capaldi, Daniela Melchior, Viola Davis, Michael Rooker, Pete Davidson, David Dastmalchian, Sylvester Stallone, Sean Gunn and many more. It will be released in theaters on August 6, 2021 and on HBO Max.
