Dave Bautista Was Supposed to Play Peacemaker, but Turned It Down to Work With Zack Snyder

The Suicide Squad sequel just dropped, and fans saw new faces, including Cena’s who plays Peacemaker. Interestingly, Cena wasn’t the director’s first choice for the character as James Gunn had Cena’s fellow WWE star Bautista in mind.

Actor Dave Bautista has had a successful transition from wrestling into acting much like those before him, including Dwayne’ The Rock’ Johnson and John Cena. In recent years, the actor has been busy and has primarily found success in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, where he plays Drax the Destroyer.
