Wrestler-turned-actor John Cena has firmly planted his roots in Hollywood with an increasing number of notable projects, among which is the upcoming sequel and reboot for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.
The original film saw a team of misfits come together to battle evil. It wasn’t what fans and critics expected and earned abysmal reviews.
Director James Gunn is hoping to set things right with the upcoming movie and Cena has revealed how he felt after reading the filmmaker’s vision of the story.
I was blown away. The first 10 pages [are] like a movie in itself. It’s really, really special. That’s because the guy steering the ship [Gunn] is committed to narrative and committed to creating characters that we connect with and sending them on an awesome journey. I mean what he did with [Guardians of the Galaxy] is really special.John Cena – collider.com
Cena went on to talk about Gunn’s dedication and passion for the project:
You want go to work with people who jump out of bed every day and want to go to work,” he said. “[Gunn] is the epitome of that. He cares so much about what he’s doing and I think especially when he’s put in a position to write, develop, and do this by his rules essentially. He chose the franchise. He kind of dictated his terms and now he’s really betting on himself and I hope everybody enjoys seeing it as much as we’re enjoying making it, because it’s awesome.
Suicide Squad 2 will be released on August 6, 2021.
