The Suicide Squad: John Cena Says Says Filming Was a "Blast"

DC fans are gearing up for DC FanDome, the virtual event that's set to showcase some of the biggest names in DC. DC Comics has been teasing a lot of fun on social media and showcasing some movie stars answering fan questions. The stars of James Gunn's upcoming The Suicide Squad have taken part, with Margot Robbie recently teasing Harley Quinn's upcoming journey. John Cena, who is rumored to be playing Peacemaker in the film, recently answered the question "How did you like filming The Suicide Squad."

"We had a blast, as with any project there are ambitious days and there are fun days. There are long days and there are days where the time flies by. Given the current state of things, man, do I wish we were back filming Suicide Squad," Cena shared.

"We had a great crew, a great cast, very involved. Everyone was very dedicated and worked extremely hard, and James was just an absolute hero. I can't speak enough with how involved he is with every single aspect. I think that leadership and that attitude starting at the top definitely was infectious down to the rest of us, and we really had a great time making this movie and really hope you enjoy it."

DC FanDome's Hall of Heroes will kick off with Wonder Woman 1984, featuring Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins and a new look at the film plus a special surprise. In addition to The Suicide Squad, The Batman will be offering up some big news and first looks, as well. Titles such as The Flash, Aquaman 2, Black Adam, and Shazam! 2 will also have their casts and directors on hand to preview what's to come, likely revealing looks in the form of concept art as production has not begun on those titles just yet.
