Suicide Squad director James Gunn shared a photo of John Cena having a cup of coffee in his Peacekeeper costume, a peculiar habit of the star.
James Gunn shares a funny photo of John Cena having coffee in his Pacifier costume. One of Gunn’s first breakthroughs in his career came from writing the screenplay for a Dawn of the Dead reboot based on George A. Romero’s 1978 classic, which became Zack Snyder’s directorial debut. Gunn went on to direct the first two installments of Guardians of the Galaxy for Marvel and now has a third on the way. For his next highly anticipated project, Gunn will switch from Marvel to DC for a soft reboot of David Ayer’s 2016. Suicide squad.
Like its predecessor, Gunn’s Suicide squad follows a collection of wacky con artists who come together to form Task Force X. Some members of Ayer’s old squad are making a comeback, including Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) and Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney). Since Suicide squad will feature a standalone story with no direct connection to the 2016 film, Gunn’s follow-up will also feature a host of new antiheroes, including Idris Elba’s Bloodsport, Sylvester Stallone’s King Shark, and Michael Rooker’s Savant, but the most prominent is Peacemaker from John Cena, who has already hosted his own solo series on HBO Max.
James Gunn I recently took to Twitter to share a funny photo of John Cena having a cup of coffee in his Peacemaker costume. Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Cena has been seen offside in full Peacekeeper clothing, which seems to have become a quirky habit for the star. Past cases include Cena taking a nap in the suit and wearing the Peacemaker costume in various interviews unrelated to the show. Gunn captioned the most recent photo, “The weird thing is, this is John’s day off,“To which Cena replied,”Why is it so weird? Just tearing up the uniform. “Check out the photo below:
As well as being a fun back and forth between the director and the star, the photo actually offers a great look at Cena’s Peacemaker costume. It consists of a tight red and blue T-shirt, tan pants, a holster, and futuristic-looking black boots. On his chest there is a yellow panel that shows a dove, which symbolizes the character’s pacifist search for peace, although paradoxically he is not afraid of using violence to achieve it. Cena has described the character as “douchey captain america. “
As a former WWE Champion and action movie star like Bumblebee and the next Fast and furious 9Cena undoubtedly has the power of the stars to make Peacemaker an instant hit. Whether Cena’s refusal to remove his Peacekeeper costume is purely comedy or an indication that he is fully committed to the role, Cena certainly possesses the comedic skills and antagonistic edge required to play Peacemaker in Suicide squad and the subsequent Pacifier series on HBO Max.
