By Geoff Borgonia August 31, 2021

The Suicide Squad’s John Cena (Peacemaker) wants to play another superhero: Ben Grimm/The Thing of the Fantastic Four.

Earlier this year, Movieweb posted an article suggesting John Cena would be perfect in the role of Benjamin J. Grimm (aka The Thing).

The article references the art from popular fan artist Boss Logic, who is noted for doing photo-manipulation pieces.

John Cena expressed that he is open to the role of the Fantastic Four’s ever-lovin, blue-eyed Thing.

Directed by Tim Story (Ride Along), the Fantastic Four film starred Ioan Gruffud, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, and Michael Chiklis.

John Cena: I would consider most any-thing. I think keeping yourself open to options and different perspectives is a good way to go about life.

For the meantime, John Cena can currently be seen in 20th Century Studios' comedy Vacation Friends.

As Marvel Studios’ Phase Four projects continue, stay tuned for further development and potential signs in upcoming films.
