The Bumblebee spin-off of the Transformers movies already has Hailee Steinfeld, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., and Pamela Adlon, but up until now, it has had a distinct lack of superstar wrestler John Cena. That may not be a huge deal, since it will also have a yellow robot who talks with his radio, but Bumblebee himself still isn’t really as popular as superstar wrestler John Cena.

It’s a good thing, then, that The Hollywood Reporter now says that John Cena has actually joined the cast of Bumblebee. We don’t know who he’ll be playing, but the story says it will at least be a “lead role” and it seems safe to assume that Cena will be playing a big guy with big muscles. (Or maybe a robot who talks like a big guy with big muscles.)


The ‘80s-set movie will be released on December 21, 2018, which puts it against Aquaman.
