The time may be now for John Cena to join the Suicide Squad sequel. Sources report that Cena is in talks to join Idris Elba and Margot Robbie in Warner Bros.’ follow-up to 2016’s Suicide Squad.

Robbie is returning as Harley Quinn and Jai Courtney is back as Captain Boomerang. Variety first reported that the studio decided to have Elba play a brand-new character instead of taking on Deadshot, a character portrayed by Will Smith in the first film. It’s currently unknown who Cena and Elba will be playing.

Warner Bros. has made no comment.

James Gunn will write and direct the movie, which is expected to go into production this fall. The tentpole hits theaters on Aug. 6, 2021.

The original “Suicide Squad” — starring Smith, Robbie and Jared Leto — became a massive box office sensation when it hit theaters in 2016, grossing $746.8 million worldwide.

The film will mark Cena’s first comic-book role. Cena made his foray into acting after years as one of the top WWE stars. Cena’s most recent big-screen roles include Universal’s Blockers, alongside Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz. He followed that up with the “Transformers” spinoff Bumblebee with Hailee Steinfeld.
