WWE superstar John Cena is open to getting out of the wrestling ring and play the fan-favorite Captain America if given an opportunity. Rumors hinting Cena joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the next Captain America have been circulating since last month after he posted a picture of Captain America’s shield scratched with five claw marks.
During an appearance on Monday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show, when John Cena was told about the rumor, he seemed quite interested in taking up the role of Captain America. Cena teased that he didn’t know who started the rumor. It might’ve been him, or even DeGeneres herself.
“For real? Who started this rumor?” John shared with Ellen DeGeneres. “Yeah, I might have started it. I don’t know. Maybe I did, maybe I didn’t. But if it’s out there, if the Captain America people are listening and you’re out there watching right now, I’ll totally do it. I totally will.”
The 41-year old WWE superstar went on to claim that given a chance he would be a good Captain America.
“I think I’d be a good Captain America,” John Cena said. “And I’ve already ruined everybody’s childhood so it can’t get any worse. Might as well.”
Although, Marvel has not yet confirmed its plans of recasting Captain America at this point, a lot of names have already started popping up as possible Chris Evans replacement. Fans currently have no idea what Avengers 4 might have in store and what will be the future of their favorite original Avenger superheroes. The general consensus among fans is that most of the original Avengers will be killed, retired, or otherwise phased out of the films after the next sequel.
Evans even hinted through an emotional tweet that his stint as the fan favorite Marvel superhero might be over.
We will find out more when Avengers 4 releases in theatres in May 2019.
