James Gunn, director of The Suicide Squad, decided to play a prank on John Cena. Has the actor taken it well? We'll tell you then.
Without a doubt, director James Gunn is currently one of the great minds of the superhero genre being part of both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe. During his work, the filmmaker managed to establish a great friendship with the protagonists of both franchises. But he is most closely related to John Cena, the actor who plays Peacemaker in The Suicide Squad. So much so, that for his birthday James Gunn played a joke on him.
One of the anecdotes that John Cena has told the most during the promotion of The Suicide Squad is that he recorded a scene where he required to eat an empanada, but the best take was sought, so it was necessary to record over and over again. In this way, the actor had to eat 31 empanadas, something that he remembers very well since it was not easy and has even stated that eating one more would have been disastrous.
