When asked about the possibility, Cena expressed openness to the idea, fueling excitement among fans and industry insiders about his potential future projects in the Marvel universe. After the triumph of The Suicide Squad, John Cena secured the starring role as Peacemaker in a spinoff TV series on HBO Max. 

However, Peacemaker Season 2 could face a long delay, as James Gunn is busy with Superman: Legacy. Interestingly, Cena has shown his openness to joining the Marvel Studios family by expressing his interest in being cast in a Marvel project, specifically mentioning the possibility of being a part of a Fantastic Four adaptation. Besides, Cena’s character in Fast and Furious has also been killed off in the latest installment of the franchise. So it makes sense for the actor to look for options, given his future in the DCEU and Fast and Furious franchise lies in uncertainty.
