The Suicide Squad is currently in production but we are still waiting to find out about John Cena's character in the James Gunn film. In the meantime, Cena's co-star Joel Kinnaman has shared an awesome behind-the-scenes photo of the former WWE champion along with an interesting story.

Kinnaman posted the picture on his official Instagram account and it shows the two actors with big smiles after a workout. Check it out below.

"Lunch break on #TheSuicideSquad When I saw @johncena bench 4000 lbs I thought to myself 'Damn.. but you know he probably can't move that well.. I'm smooth and flexible..' Then he got up started stretching and did the splits," Kinnaman wrote.

First of all, who does splits right after benching 4000 lbs? Secondly, 4000 lbs is just excessive, we're pretty sure Cena was just showing off at the gym.

Of course, we totally believe Kinnaman's story (4000 lbs?) and it's great to know that the cast is working hard to look their best for The Suicide Squad. Hopefully, we'll see more behind-the-scenes photos in the near future.

Although it appears that Kinnaman is thoroughly impressed with Cena, the former Altered Carbon star might not feel the same way about Jared Leto. It was previously reported that Kinnaman, who starred alongside Leto in 2016's Suicide Squad, joked that he didn't even know the Blade Runner 2049 actor before heaping some praise on Joker star Joaquin Phoenix.

The Suicide Squad is still in production but is expected to premiere on August 6, 2021.
