A video has surfaced on social media that shows popular actor John Cena in costume walking down a Metro Vancouver street.
Cena is currently filming a Suicide Squad spin-off show called Peacemaker in the city. The eight-episode series will air on HBO in 2022 and "will explore the origins of the character that Cena will play in the upcoming film, a man who believes in peace at any cost — no matter how many people he has to kill to get it."
The American actor, who is also a professional wrestler, is married to Canadian engineer Shay Shariatzadeh; she studied at the University of British Columbia.Recently, Director James Gunn took to social media to share a picture of the actor walking down the street. He captioned: "What’s weird is that this is on John’s day off."
In response, a fan has shared a short video of the Peacemaker star walking down the street. In her Twitter post, she writes that he was "covered in fake blood" although it might be difficult to spot in the video. However, she assures that there "is lots of blood."
I love that he shares this one when John Cena was also walking down the street covered in fake blood. 😂— STARRIDER ★ (@IamStarrider) May 1, 2021
