Summer 2022 Movies Starring Wrestlers

The Rock Becomes DC’s Pet 

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will voice the lead role of Krypto the Super-Dog in DC League of Super-Pets. Krypto is the lovable sidekick of Superman. Krypto must step up and master his powers when Superman is kidnapped.

“The Rock” partners with Kevin Hart, once again, who voices Ace – one of several pets that inhabit superpowers. The animated movie will be a guaranteed hit with families as one of the most feel-good movies set for release. DC League of Super-Pets is set to release on July 29. 

Bautista Backs Up Thor: Love & Thunder 

Dave Bautista returns to one of his most beloved roles as Drax the Destroyer in Thor: Love & Thunder

In the latest installment in the Thor franchise, the titular character played by Chris Hemsworth puts together a team to fight Gorr the God Butcher. Bautista’s Drax will provide some of his trademark muscle and humor. The movie launches on July 8.

Bautista will also return to the Drax role for a Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special at the end of the year. 

Will We See Cena?

John Cena has three movies currently in post-production. Cena will star in action thriller Snafu, spy romp Argylle and government conspiracy thriller The Independent. None of the movies have release dates, so it might be more likely we see Cena again on the big screen in the Autumn. 

CJ Perry is WifeLike

If her Instagram is anything to go by, former WWE Superstar Lana AKA CJ Perry is preparing for an action star role. She will appear in the James Bird movie WifeLike. But as with the Cena movies, this is yet to announce a release date.
