TBS’ Wipeout Promo Features The Suicide Squad’s John Cena, James Gunn
When he’s not appearing on the big screen, John Cena presides over the world’s wackiest obstacle course as one of the hosts of TBS’ Wipeout. And to plug Cena’s upcoming role in The Suicide Squad, the hit game show will air a new crossover special featuring appearances by several of his castmates from the film. You can check out a new promo for the episode below.
Cena appears in the promo dressed in full Peacemaker attire alongside co-host Nicole Byer and The Suicide Squad writer/director James Gunn, who is still rocking his new silverfox look. Gunn is apparently just there to make sure Cena doesn’t mess up his costume, since they are still filming his spinoff series. Also joining in on the fun are Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag), Nathan Fillion (T.D.K.), and Daniela Melchior (Ratcatcher II).
The original Wipeout aired on ABC from 2008 to 2014. However, TBS rebooted the series earlier this year with Cena, Byer, and Camille Kostek serving as the new hosts. The show finds several contestants competing for cash prizes by navigating obstacles like the sideway sweeper and the infamous big red balls. Unfortunately, it looks like The Suicide Squad’s cast members will be calling into the episode via Zoom. So we probably shouldn’t expect them to try out the course for themselves.
The special episode of Wipeout airs on Sunday, August 1 on TBS at 9pm. Meanwhile, The Suicide Squad will hit theaters and HBO Max five days later on August 6.
