There were rumors going around that Dave Bautista was being eyed to play a part in James Gunn\u2019s The Suicide Squad, but it looks like he couldn\u2019t commit, what with his busy schedule. As it turns out, the movie may cast another pro-wrestler in his place.\r\n\r\nAccording to Variety, The Suicide Squad is currently eyeing WWE star John Cena for a part. We don\u2019t really know who he\u2019s playing yet, but rumors were going around that Bautista was being eyed for the role of a new character called Peacemaker. With Cena\u2019s impressive physique, I think he might actually make a good replacement.\r\n\r\nFor now, nothing solid has been confirmed for Cena\u2019s casting. Besides him, the movie has also cast Idris Elba in a yet to be disclosed role. Some say he was originally set to replace Will Smith as Deadshot, but it looks like they\u2019re rewriting the part to keep the door open for Smith to come back. Fans speculate that Elba is now going to be Squad member Bronze Tiger from the comics, but he could very well be playing someone else.\r\n\r\nWhile the movie is set to introduce a bunch of new characters this time around, cast members from the original Suicide Squad have also been confirmed to make a return. Besides Margot Robbie\u2019s Harley Quinn, we also have Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), and Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman).\r\n\r\nCatch The Suicide Squad in theaters Aug. 6, 2021.
