Fans shared photos of John Cena celebrating his birthday on a Vancouver film set on April 23. He is filming Peacemaker--a Suicide Squad spin-off show.

Fans shared photos of John Cena celebrating his birthday on a Vancouver film set last week. 

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.

A couple of fans brought Cena a balloon to celebrate his birthday and shared images of him covered in fake blood posing with it.  

Director James Gunn also wished Cena a happy birthday on Twitter and said that the actor loves empanadas. In response, Cena stated that he wishes his Peacemaker costume had an "empanada poop chute."
