John Cena straps in for Fast & Furious 9

John Cena is possibly replacing Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock who we hear will not be a part of the ninth instalment

While we still don't know much about his character though Deadline reports he plays "a baddie" (duh), we're wondering if Cena will be replacing Dwayne Johnson who we hear will NOT be in Fast & Furious 9.

Cena is following a similar career trajectory as Dwayne Johnson, going from WWE wrestler to "franchise Viagra" in movies. "The plan has always been for the Fast & Furious universe to grow and expand".

"I know this sounds insane, but every blue moon, I feel like Pablo up there sends me someone". Daniel Casey, who penned the action film, Kin that received disastrous reviews will be writing the screenplay for Fast & Furious 9, so you know it's in good hands.

However, The Rock will star in a Fast & Furious spinoff, scheduled for an August 2 release. Its highest-grossing entry, 2015's James Wan-directed Furious 7, racked up over $1.5 billion dollars on its own; it's one of only eight films to surpass that milestone, and one of only four to do it it while not having Avengers or Star Wars in its title.

Congrats to John Cena on becoming "another soldier in the fight for truth" alongside Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, and Tyrese.

While he's a big addition to the film franchise, one familiar face won't be there. Why, something just don't add up! (That number doesn't take into account spin-offs, though, like the upcoming Hobbs and Shaw.) This will be the first Fast movie since 2006's Tokyo Drift that won't be written by longtime writer/producer Chris Morgan.
