Wrestler-turned-actor John Cena, who has been pretty impressive with his on-screen performances, joined the DC Extended Universe with James Gunn’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ last year. And with the 44-year-old actor’s antihero character Peacemaker getting his own spin-off series, Cena is all set to continue his juggernaut run in front of the camera on HBO Max.
While Cena’s popularity continues to grow with each project, he is often quizzed about sharing screen-space with fellow wrestler-turned-actor, Dwayne Johnson. The two have been a part of the Fast And The Furious franchise and now have even joined the DC Extended Universe, but are yet to feature in a single project.

During a recent interaction with ComicBook, Cena was asked about his previous comment on sharing the frame with Johnson in a DC crossover project. Responding to which he said, “That’s one heck of a movie poster, Peacemaker and Black Adam. I’ll leave it at that.”
Last year, in another interview, Cena had shared his willingness to join forces with The Rock. “You know me. Ready, willing, and able. And answering the phone whenever it rings. I’m good. I think that the excitement is starting to build with fans, whether you talk about the conversation of Fast, or you talk about, now, the DC Universe. I don’t want to say we’re on a crash course and it’s inevitable. I want to because I’m a fan. But we’ll see what happens.”
Meanwhile, talking about Cena’s upcoming series ‘Peacemaker’, it’ll be streaming live on HBO Max from January 13. Created by James Gunn, the DC series will also feature Robert Patrick, Jennifer Holland, Steve Agee, Danielle Brooks, Freddie Stroma and Chukwudi Iwuji in pivotal roles.
