The heavily hyped series will continue up just where James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad left off previously this year, with John Cena resuming his role as Peacemaker, which he earned as a fan favorite thanks to his excellent performance in the DC quasi-sequel. On January 13th, the show will premiere on HBO Max, with fresh episodes anticipated to be published monthly on the streaming platform.
Gunn also directs a significant portion of the series, which serves as both a prequel and a sequel, taking place after the events of the film but exposing the origins of the superhero determined to establishing peace at all costs, even killing anyone who stands in his way. (It should go without saying that this is not a children’s superhero program.)
Although Peacemaker is the main character in this next series, it appears that the A.R.G.U.S squad will play an important part as they join the antihero on his latest mission. — Over the course of Peacemaker, Gunn hinted that he may have other spin-offs planned, so there’s a chance that this project might set up some future DCEU narratives with these extremely interesting characters based in the Suicide Squad milieu. Peacemaker will be released in only a few weeks, so fans won’t have to wait much.
