Looks like John Cena is rather taken with his role in Fast and Furious 9, as he is expressing genuine interest in appearing in yet another movie of the Fast franchise. F9 begins its marketing campaign last week, with Cena as Jakob, the newest member of the family, being at the front and center. Based on information revealed in the official trailer, Jakob is Dominic Toretto’s long lost brother – the guy is an assassin, a thief and a master driver all rolled into one. Furthermore, Dom and his brother definitely have some bad blood between them.

With the theme of the series being family, it is very likely that Jakob, Dom’s brother, would not be on the villain team for too long. Anyone can better themselves in Fast & Furious, with characters like Deckard Shaw, Luke Hobbs, and even Dom himself started out as villains then become increasingly more heroic later.

Because of that, it’s likely that Jakob would not die at the end of the movie. Villains have come back from death in the series before, with the Shaw brothers being the biggest example. Cipher (played by Charlize Theron) is likely to be the one getting the short end of the stick, as she is the one who’s pulling Jakob’s strings. It wouldn’t be far stretched to see her getting betrayed by Jakob at the end of the movie.

About Cena’s acting capabilities, he has definitely improved by a lot as of late. The guy has been getting tons of invites as of late, with roles in action-packed blockbusters like F9, Bumblebee and Suicide Squad. The latter’s director, James Gunn of Guardian of the Galaxy fame, called John Cena one of the best talents he has ever work with due to his amazing improvisation ability.
