- John Cena posted a cryptic Instagram photo of Captain America's Shield this weekend.
- After leaving Chris Evans Marvel at the end of his contract, some fans noticed the right timing.
- But you should not accept Cena's Instagram budget. He's the next cap – for now.
WWE star John Cena has taken steps to become a real movie star, with outstanding twists in Trainwreck and Blockers and upcoming parts in Bumblebee and The Janson Directive . Is the Marvel Cinematic Universe the next one? Fans speculate if any of his recent Instagram posts are an indication of Captain America.
On Sunday, Cena tweeted a photograph of Caps's famous shield and did not include a caption to explain herself.
The fans immediately took this as a signal that he was either fighting for the role of Captain America for Chris Evans or suggesting that he already got the role – or another role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The timing would be meaningful because Evans has stated that he has no plans to resume his role after his contract expires. And who is more American than John Cena? Just watch him talk about patriotism, and you'll understand.
Although some fans have opted for the idea, others say they'd rather call the next Captain America Bucky or Falcon to stay true to comics history.
Advertising – Read below  I'm a Marvel fan for life, but these John Cena rumors are killing me. Yes, he is a talented actor, but Captain America should either be Falcon or Bucky, as in the comics. Please do not ruin it by trying to make some money out of flushed wrestlers.

But Cena has already found troll fans on Instagram, so not too upset yet. CBR states that he did the same with HBO's Watchmen series. And Cena released a lot of weird stuff without subtitles on Instagram – recently he published memes about Star Wars and Spongebob Squarepants and no one speculated that he would join in these traits. Still.
