Is John Cena joining the upcoming Fast and Furious 9? That’s a question that’s actually worth talking about this week. Vin Diesel, a longtime series actor, confirmed the news yesterday posting an Instagram video.
Diesel shares the following sentiment with his fans: “Guys, as you know, I’m always thinking fast, and thinking about the responsibility of making something iconic and deserving of your loyalty,” Diesel said. “I know this sounds crazy, but every blue moon I feel like Pablo up there sends me someone. Another soldier in the fight for truth. Today, someone came by Toretto Gym that speaks to what Pablo would have brought.”
In the video, Diesel holds the camera up to his sunglass-covered face to take a little moment to chat with his family one-to-one before panning the camera to reveal WWE Superstar John Cena at his side. The video ends with a final “All love. Always.” Diesel added the caption “Thank you Pablo” at the bottom of his post, taking a moment to thank his late friend and co-star Paul Walker.
Cena was recently reported to be in talks with Warner Bros. to join the cast of James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad, which is set to hit theaters on August 6, 2021. Fast & Furious 9 will be helmed by Justin Lin, who directed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth entries in the Fast & Furious franchise. Fast & Furious 9 is slated for a 2020 release.
