Video: Trailer and release info for John Cena’s ‘Peacemaker’!
October 17, 2021
They’ve released the trailer for John Cena’s The Suicide Squad spin-off Peacemaker!
You may remember they announced this new series from James Gunn back in July.
Cena plays Peacemaker in the recent DC Universe and will reprise the role for this HBO Max series. Official release date is January 13, 2022.
Director Gunn talked to Collider about the ensemble cast, “So there’s the six main characters of Peacemaker, Leota Adebayo, who’s Danielle Brooks, Emilia Harcourt, who’s Jennifer Holland, Vigilante, who’s Freddie Stroma, Clemson Murn, who is Chukwudi Iwuji, and John Economos, who is Steve Agee. It’s really an ensemble about those six characters.”
Gunn said you should expect one big storyline in the eight part series, and each character will have their own journey.
Talking to NME, John Cena said, “In pushing the boundaries of Peacemaker, I started to lean into a lot of the nuances that I enjoy. None of it made the movie – not one bit – and everyone on the cast was very patient during that exploration. A lot of it was grossly inappropriate – certainly not acceptable – but you do get to a place where you define a character.”
If they’re making a Peacemaker series, which other DC character deserves the same?
