The Suicide Squad had its red carpet premiere this Monday, at Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles. All the cast and crew were present with James Gunn (director) to see the superhero epic on the big screen.
While eyes were definitely waiting for the magnanimous ensemble The Suicide Squad to unfold what couldn’t be missed was John Cena in his full Peacemaker costume on the red carpet shining with his goofy smile.
John Cena was rocking his entire costume with a red, white, and blue patriotic (almost like American flag) ensemble, paired with his silver helmet and a fake but quite large handgun.
Cena was looking like the total picture, with his costume. The only thing distinguishing him from the maniac patriot Peacemaker, who will go to any ends to bring peace was his glowing smile and charming attitude.
When Cena spoke with ET’s Lauren Zima she asked him whether he was walking the carpet like Cena or Peacemaker, this was his answer:
”Well, this is a very festive occasion as we premiere The Suicide Squad,”
“I ask myself who I am on a daily basis and the answer changes sometimes. And tonight I am dressed up as Christopher Smith, the Peacemaker.”
Walking along the Peacemaker dressed John Cena was his beautiful wife Shay Shariatzadeh, she also wowed everyone with her colorful metallic dress and some sharp black heels.
Cena’s outfit did not go unnoticed by his co-stars of The Suicide Squad. Margot Robbie couldn’t believe that he managed to steal that costume and kind of regretted not having that marvelous idea herself.
“He stole that costume!”
“I didn’t even know we were allowed to do that! I did not know we could steal our costumes, and I didn’t steal mine. I should have done that, I would have worn it tonight.”
Looks like we missed the chance to see Harley Quinn’s costume in action. We hope next time John Cena shares his secret with Margot Robbie as well.
Nathan Fillion who plays the T.D.K in the upcoming movie also had something to say about the costume.
”He hasn’t taken it off in weeks.”
“That is a commitment to a bit, that is a life of dedication right there.”
John Cena also took to Twitter to show off his Peacemaker costume.
While John Cena came with extra energy and pizzaz on the carpet, he also gave us some insight into his casting when he talked to Variety:
He [James Gunn] casts very well. I probably wasn’t his first name on the list, but I was on the list. One meeting allowed us to share some common ground.”
It seems like no one could talk John Cena out from the idea of costume, and we are loving it. He is going to be playing Peacemaker in the film and later in his own upcoming HBO Max series and we can’t wait to take a look at him in both these adventures.
The red carpet was packed with memorable moments and we hope the movie leaves the same mark. The movie hits the theatres on August 5th, 2021 and HBO Max would stream it on the same day.
