John Cena in Talks to Join James Gunn's The Suicide Squad.

John Cena is circling a role in the Suicide Squad sequel.

The Bumblebee actor is in early talks for a role in the Warner Bros. superhero follow-up that is being written and directed by James Gunn.

Cena will join Idris Elba in the film along with returning cast members Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg.

Right now, it's unknown which character Cena would potentially play in the upcoming blockbuster, but theories are already swirling. Considering how the Polka Dot Man and Peacemaker had previously been rumored, it could be either one of those. Conversely, the former WWE Champion may be suiting up as any number of characters to have appeared in a comic book penned by the likes of Jon Ostrander, Adam Glass or Rob Williams.
