Cena arrived at the film’s premiere in Los Angeles dressed as his character Peacemaker, telling Associated Press: “We have 25 identifiable superheroes. That’s why I’m here in costume. I’m just trying to get everybody familiar with me, but that’s what makes it wonderful. James (Gunn) makes you care about every single one. So if someone doesn’t make it, you feel an emotional connection.”
