Why did DC hire John Cena for Peacemaker?

WWE superstars such as Stone Cold, Hulk Hogan, The Rock, The Miz, Randy Orton, and many more have tried their luck in Hollywood.

But recently, Stars such as The Rock, and Dave Bautista have created a huge impact on the box office with their movies.

And it would be wrong to leave John Cena from the list, who has been the talk of the town for his recent TV show, Peacemaker.

Peacemaker is undoubtedly the best work of John Cena in Hollywood, who has also starred in movies such as Fast 9, Marine, The Suicide Squad, and many more.

But, how did John Cena get an opportunity to become a part of the DC cinematic universe?

Director James Gunn recently explained why he decided to hire John Cena for the role of Peacemaker.

"When I saw that moment in him, I knew John was not just a performer who was funny, which is why I hired him, but a guy who had this other layer. At that moment, I knew John had that thing. It's a thing a lot of big actors don't have, and that most wrestlers turned actors don't have. Dave Bautista also has it. That's the reason I hired him for Guardians in the first place." said James Gun.

Peacemaker is undoubtedly one of the biggest TV shows of 2022 so far.

In fact, the second season of Peacemaker has officially been announced and is expected to release in 2023.
