John Cena

John Cena, WWE’s franchise player, has won a total of 25 championships throughout his WWE career; with 16 reigning as WWE World Heavyweight Champion. He’s a three-time WWE’s “Superstar of the Year” Slammy Award winner (200920102012), and granted the most wishes in Make-A-Wish history. .

WWE’s Wrestling Superhero is now becoming a Movie Superhero.

Mr.Cena has successfully followed Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Dave Bautista in making the jump from the squared circle to the silver screen; with increasingly roles in films, like Trainwreck, Daddy’s Home 2, and the upcoming Transformers spin-off Bumblebee.

But now there is a hint on his inscrutable Instagram, something to do with Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons and John Higgins’ masterpiece, Watchmen. His Instagram is often a topic of discussion among wrestling fans because unlike most grapplers who share workout selfies and sponsored meal supplement posts. He prefers to share seemingly random images found from the oddest corners of the internet without any explanation or context. In the past two weeks, Cena has posted about Watchmen twice: one of The Comedian’s

Mr. Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect could very well be playing Doctor Manhattan in the upcoming DC’s Watchmen project. Watchmen is currently now developing, as a television series for HBO.

Cena has a habit of teasing things on social media, and teasing a role on social media has become relatively normal. If that is the case, Super Cena would be taking on his first superhero role outside of a WWE ring. He has taken to a more “part-timer” schedule in WWE, opening up the possibilities of what he can take on in Hollywood.

John Cena, will Damon Lindelof pick him as Doctor Manhattan?

His most current “Kid’s Friendly” project, the animated Ferdinand, is coming to theaters very soon.

As for this new version, the project is being directed by Damon Lindelof, who revealed why he is taking on the beloved property.

“Watchmen – it was dangerous,” Lindelof told Vulture. “And you can’t be dangerous for dangerous’ sake; but the reason that I’m doing this is these are dangerous times, and we need dangerous shows. What we think about superheroes is wrong. I love the Marvel movies and we saw Justice League this morning and I’m all for Wonder Woman and Batman and I grew up on these characters, but we should not trust people who put on masks, and say that they are looking out for us. If you hide your face, you are up to no good.”

So what do you think about Super Cena become as Dr.Manhanttan? Is he suitable for that character, or is he more suitable to play as Shazam?

Writer’s View:

No matter which superhero character Cena is planning to take part, WWE Films should take part in it. Well, it’s because everyone knows WWE Films isn’t generating any profits from their Movies. So WWE joining forces with Warner Brothers’ superhero movies not only benefits Cena and the company but also benefits the other Superstars.

For my coffee: any money given to me will be donated to dog shelters in my country (Myanmar). And the reason is, here the shelters are very different with the ones in USA. Dogs are staying with only a limited roof and food supply. No warm beds or enough places to sleep. No houses or comfortable surroundings.
