The Suicide Squad 2 fans can watch the movie when it hits the theatres and streaming platform HBO Max in August, and when they finally do, they’ll meet new characters who’re going to instill a new life to the franchise. One of those characters is going to be of Peacemaker – aptly played by Pro wrestler turned actor, John Cena.
From the looks of it, Peacemaker is going to be an essential member of the cast and a great addition to the big screen. In fact, he is currently filming a prequel series for the same streaming platform. Not that we mind, but because of that, he’s got no time to change and he’s doing all of his promotional interviews in his Peacemaker costume.
But you know what’s even more interesting? The actor is now also doing interviews that have absolutely nothing to do with the movie itself! Naturally, the results are amazingly hilarious and nobody else is laughing more than the director James Gunn himself.
Okay so basically, John Cena is filming an original story for his character Peacemaker. Since the trailer of his movie is out, he has to answer fan queries and make time for promotional interviews – he’s a committed and hardworking guy, what can we say?
But recently, he had to appear on TNT’s NBA post game show to talk about professional wrestling and all things sports-related. So considering that, there was no need to appear on the show wearing the Peacemaker costume. But you know what he did? He ended up making his appearance in the Peacemaker costume and James Gunn found out and thought that is was iconic!
We think that John Cena has been filming non-stop and the only time he gets a break, he ends up giving that slot to his on-going interviews and other professional commitments. And so, there’s no time left for him to change his outfit. Come on, we already hear so much about how difficult it is to get in and out of superhero (and in this case, supervillian) costumes. And honestly, we think that Cena feels quite comfortable in that costume… and pretty handsome, too.
We wouldn’t have been surprised at all had he been asked by the filmmakers to do the promotions wearing that outfit anyway. He can simply roam around wearing that costume and then he wouldn’t even have to respond to anyone during interviews – isn’t that classic?
Since movie promotions are huge and essential for such big-budgeted movies, he can do whatever he wants during his free time and get Suicide Squad promotions done simultaneously. Killing two birds with one stone is fun, isn’t it? This, in fact, is a great promotional strategy because people would remember what he wore subconsciously.
James Gunn, on the other hand, is finding this situation really funny. Now look at it from his point of view, what he sees is a guy who worked under his direction, still committed to the character he adapted from the comic books. He can see his actor hanging out with Shaq in the Peacemaker costume and discussing professional wrestling. Totally normal.
Anyway, we have some more news for you – on April Fool’s Day, James Gunn surprised the fans of the franchise with yet another trailer of the Suicide Squad 2. People who went to see Warner Bros’ latest MonsterVerse franchise “Godzilla vs. Kong” they were the first ones to witness the teaser of the magic that Gunn has created. This footage contained explosive new sequences from the film – giving insight into Nathan Fillion’s and Daniela Melchior’s characters.
Check out the trailer below!
James Gunn has written the screenplay of the franchise and he has also directed the movie. The characters from DC are based on Charles Roven and Peter Safran collection. Meanwhile, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo, Nikolas Korda and Richard Suckle are acting as executive producers. The Suicide Squad debuts on August 6 released and we’re all really excited! Are you excited too?
