Fantastic Four: John Cena says he would agree to be La Mole

If they don’t appear in a superhero movie, are they really Hollywood actors? Increasingly, the expansive sagas of comic book firms are signing all kinds of actors, new and better, for their films. One who is interested in staying in the genre and who wouldn’t say no to another lead role is John Cena. The wrestler has been mentioned by fans to be La Mole in the upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four.

In an interview with Esquire, the actor John Cena He explains that he is always interested in all kinds of projects, as he likes to be open to possibilities. This was said when asked if he would be interested in giving life to Ben Grimm, aka La Mole, one of the classic members of The Fantastic Four, characters that will soon receive a reboot within the Marvel universe, he said the following about the idea:

I would consider anything. I think staying open to options and different perspectives is a good way to go through life. That would just be something I would consider because I like to keep my perspective open to all kinds of things.

As you remember, Grimm is one of the scientists who is exposed to a specific type of radiation that gives him powers. Unlike Mr. Fantastic, the Human Torch and the Invisible Woman, La Mola cannot control her appearance and always appears as the being made of rock that gives her her characteristic appearance. Since the fighter is famous for his muscular body, some fans have wondered if he is not the best option for this hero.

In the past, the character has been played by Michael Chiklis, in the 2005 film. And more recently by the British Jamie Bell in the infamous 2015 remake. Neither film achieved the desired impact even though they explored Ben’s conflict with accepting his new look and powers and the envy of not being able to get on with his life as he does with his companions.

Still, can Cena make the width for that kind of dramatic work? We know that the actor can be a threatening presence, as in Bumblebee – 95%, and also that it can be a lot of fun as in Don’t touch them. But more recently, as Peacemaker in The suicide squad – 91%, was one of the most prominent actors in that film precisely because of the darkest turn that his role takes towards the end of the film.

So much so that he will have his own series created by the director James Gunn on HBO Max, which is expected to premiere in early 2022. Until then, you can watch Cena on Vacation Friendss, one of the first exclusive movies on the new Star Plus streaming service. Could you find your way to Marvel? Kevin Feige has said that they are not looking for the cast of the remake yet, but we all know that he enjoys misleading fans, so we will not have more to wait until he finds out.
