John Cena has acquired very important roles in the world of cinema in recent years and one of his future projects will be linked to the second installment of Suicide Squad. Directed by James Gunn, the Warner Bros film began filming in 2018 and will premiere in August 2021.
In the last hours it has been confirmed, officially, that John Cena will play the role of Pacemaker (Peacemaker), a role for the WWE superstar that was already rumored in early 2020. Originally, the role of the character was going to be for Dave Bautista (Batista), but the former WWE champion ruled out his participation in the cast due to scheduling problems. Peacemaker will do everything possible to achieve peace with ethically questionable methods.

In recent months there has been much speculation about the second installment of the saga, especially considering that the first film was harshly criticized by the specialized media.

Warner has unveiled a host of actors who will portray different characters, including David Viola, Joel Kinnaman, Michael Rooker, Flula Borg, David Dastmalchian, Margot Robbie, Daniela Melchior, Idris Elba, Peter Capaldi, Alice Braga, Pete Davison, Nathan Fillion, Jai Courtney and John Cena himself.
