Introduced in the guise of John Cena in “The Suicide Squad”, Peacemaker will then return to the small screen with a series which will be entirely devoted to him. A first image has just been unveiled, pending more information next month. Warning, the article contains a major spoiler on the James Gunn film.
Peacemaker, a prominent member of James Gunn’s Suicide Squad
The crazy The Suicide Squad was released this summer in theaters. James Gunn provided good quality work, easily surpassing the previous installment directed by David Ayer. The new team of anti-heroes could count on some old ones, but it was especially the new ones who stood out. Among them was Peacemaker, a character played by John Cena. He stood out for his physique but also for his very particular character and his rivalry with Bloodsport. Peace Officer, he is ready to do all the filth to fulfill its mission. This is the whole paradox, since he does not hesitate to use excessive violence to meet his objectives.
An interesting figure, who finished The Suicide Squad in a bad state. James Gunn orchestrated an immense game of massacre during which the world left its skin there. We thought Peacemaker was defeated but a post-credits scene made it clear thathe was alive and well. Even before the film was released, it was to be expected that he would not be defeated because a series entirely dedicated to him was commissioned. Still with James Gunn at the helm, she is scheduled to come and decorate the catalog of the HBO Max platform. Like what Marvel does with Disney +, Warner wants to take advantage of the DC brand on the small screen, and intends to create bridges with feature films.
A first image of the series
We don’t know how Peacemaker will position itself in relation to the timeline of The Suicide Squad. The events may take place before or after. Even if the end of the film clearly leans towards the second possibility, flashbacks are possible. We should learn more during the DC Fandome which is scheduled for October. James Gunn has just shared a first official image of the series on which we see the central character at the wheel of his car. You can read, next to the license plate, the date of October 10, that is to say the day when a first trailer should be released. Additionally, the air date may also be revealed.
