Now that Cena joins the cast there are sure to be more cast announcements. We might even get a new title for film. There is no word yet on whether Cena will be part of the crew or a new antagonist for Dom and his family.

This news comes on the heels of learning that another big star is joining the overall franchise, as well. Keanu Reeves will join the cast of Hobbs & Shaw, as well. Fans saw John Cena as Agent Burns in last year’s Transformers blockbuster, Bumblebee.
