After numerous teasers and reveals in the last couple of months, DC finally revealed a full official trailer for the TV series Peacemaker starring John Cena in the titular role.
Ever since the latest DC movie The Suicide Squad was released last August, the fans have been waiting for this spin-off TV series that James Gunn wrote after finishing The Suicide Squad. John Cena’s Christopher Smith, also known as the Peacemaker, was presumably killed in the movie by Idris Elba’s Bloodsport, but the post-credit scene of the movie revealed that the character is alive and that he’ll be needed again to save the entire f***ing world.
James Gunn wrote all eight episodes of the series, and he directed five of them. The series is rated R, and it’s set to debut on HBOMax on January 13, 2022.
Check out the official trailer:
Steve Agee, Danielle Brooks, Robert Patrick, Jennifer Holland, Freddie Stroma, and Chukwudi Iwuji are also starring alongside Cena. After working together on Peacemaker, James Gunn offered Iwuji an undisclosed role in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which is now in production. Freddie Stroma is also starring as Adrian Chase aka Vigilante. Although the series will show us the origin of the titular character, James Gunn confirmed that the series is set after the events of The Suicide Squad.
Peacemaker is James Gunn’s second DC project, after The Suicide Squad. He’s currently working on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but DC announced that Gunn will work for them in the future again. So we can expect a lot more from the filmmaker.
