The Cast Of Suicide Squad Will Appear On TBS' Wipeout On August 1

And mere days after that, the movie will hit theaters and HBO Max on August 6.


John Cena is using his pull as co-host of TBS game show Wipeout to have the cast and writer-director of The Suicide Squad appear on the obstacle-course series compete on August 1. Or, as writer-director James Gunn jokes about his upcoming Wipeout appearance in a newly released promo, "Well, John, we need that [Peacemaker] uniform back before you get slime on it or whatever it is you guys do here."

For fans who have been psyched about the upcoming film adaptation of DC's Suicide Squad hitting theaters and HBO Max on August 6, this surprise appearance will just be a nice splash of light-hearted fun a few days before. Of course, once The Suicide Squad is out, we can all go back to looking forward to Gunn's work on a Peacemaker spin-off from that movie (expected on HBO Max in January 2022), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (releasing May 2023), and a Guardians Holiday Special (landing on Disney+ in late 2022).

Wipeout was a hit game show that originally aired on ABC from 2008 to 2014, with its claim to fame being that it put contestants through the "world's largest" obstacle course. Recently rebooted back in April of this year, the show was quickly renewed for Season 2 in May. Cena co-hosts the series with Nicole Byer (Netflix's Nailed It!) and model Camille Kostek.

Cena, when he isn't busy hosting Wipeout or acting in TV and movies, has recently announced he'll be returning to the WWE for more matches at some point, pending a cooperative schedule.
