The F9 film starring WWE Superstar John Cena has been delay another again.

The picture, which was originally scheduled to be released on May 28 in the United States, will instead be released on June 25. This move has led another major Universal Studios film, Minions: The Rise of Gru, to be postponed for a year, according to Deadline. It will now be released in theatres on July 1, 2022, rather than July 2, 2021, as originally planned.

COVID 19 occurrences are projected to diminish in the coming months, according to the source, thus the delay may help the production house attract additional viewers.

“They are still closed, despite the fact that New York City reopened on Friday and Los Angeles is expected to reopen soon as Covid cases fall and vaccines grow in the city. If worldwide markets improve during the outbreak, it’s possible that F9 will begin its theatrical run outside of the United States first. Despite this, Universal is striving to release F9 simultaneously in as many markets as possible.”

For the second time, F9 has been postponed. It was planned to be released in May 2020, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, which was still going strong at the time, that didn’t happen.

John Cena will play Jakob Toretto, the main antagonist, in F9, his debut appearance in one of Hollywood’s most successful film franchises. He is also Vin Diesel’s character Dominik Toretto’s younger brother.

The Cenation Leader joined The Rock as a WWE Superstar who transferred to the realm of Fast & Furious. The Brahma Bull isn’t in the latest installment, ruling out the idea of the two former WWE Champions sharing the screen. The Rock plays Luke Hobbs, who was last seen in Hobbs & Shaw, the franchise’s first spin-off, in 2019.

While John Cena’s big Hollywood debut will have to wait at least three months, he is gearing up to star in HBO Max’s Peacemaker (a Suicide Squad spin-off). He’s currently pursuing the same goal in Vancouver, Canada, which is why he won’t be at Wrestlemania this year.

While many fans are perplexed as to why John Cena isn’t at Mania in his hometown of Tampa, Florida, the former world champion has used COVID protocols to justify his absence. On the After the Bell Podcast, he talked about missing the Show of Shows for the first time since 2004.

“Because of the quarantine rule, if I fly to the United States on Sunday for WrestleMania — which is perfectly possible — problems will occur when I return to Canada. Because I’d have to quarantine for 14 days, which would entail a two-week delay in production and a significant financial outlay, and that would be really selfish of me.”
