John Cena is posting about Zelda on Instagram

Could he feature in the upcoming Zelda movie?

John Cena has posted an image of Link’s original NES sprite from The Legend of Zelda on Instagram, leaving fans wondering if it could be a tease for the recently announced Zelda movie. His post has no caption, and no clear reason as to why it would be shared.

While this could be a tease for the Zelda movie, and I wouldn’t be opposed to a John Cena Ganondorf, it’s worth noting that John Cena also shared a Punch-Out!! screengrab on Instagram a few days ago. Perhaps he’s just a big NES fan?

We’ll just have to wait to see if this potential Zelda tease amounts to anything.
