With The suicide squad scheduled to premiere next month and spinoff series Peacemaker en route to HBO Max to kick off the new year, writer / director James gunn and star Jean Cena spent a lot of time together and got to know each other well. In fact, good enough for Gunn to realize that Cena really enjoys wearing his Peacekeeper costume. Were talking really love it. Like, appear-on-a-dozen-talk shows-and-watch-TV-in-it. In a previous exchange he had with Gunn, Cena admitted to using a few of the costumes and, as we mentioned in a previous post, it kind of made us think, “Holy shit, Is John Cena so busy that you don’t have time to have a wardrobe so he dresses up with whatever is available in the project he’s working on? “

Of course, that sent the” Cena Signal “shining brightly in the night sky, catching Gunn’s attention – and a response from social media.” Hahaha , he has to stop wearing this so much. If we get a season 2, the outfits will all be worn out. They’re expensive, ”Gunn wrote in the caption of his tweet, which you can check out below;
