“I can’t tell you how many superhero parts I’ve been rejected for,” Cena said. Shazam is one among them.”
He also said that he had previously auditioned for the character of Cable in Deadpool 2. But that the role was ultimately given to actor Josh Brolin. Cena, on the other hand, stated that he had not given up hope. “There was a brief attempt at the Deadpool universe, rejection,” the actor stated. There was a handful who were turned down in the Marvel universe. But, you know, I’m not giving up.”
“I read all those scripts and parts and was like, ‘Man, I really think I could add to this,’ and it was just rejection after rejection after rejection,” he explained. Adding, “But I guess the lows make the highs high.”
