Washington D.C. [U.S.A], December 4 (ANI): All the superhero buffs know that Damon Lindelof has been adapting critically-acclaimed graphic novel 'Watchmen' for the small screen at HBO for some time now.

But the information regarding exactly who will be starring and when the show will eventually debut is still kept under wraps.

But, it looks like we might have found who'll be portraying one of the key members of the team.

WWE Superstar John Cena is a household name across the world, and now it seems he's got his eyes on an exciting new prospect.
