Well I think you can say, "Damn it, it's peacemaker!" Or something like "F * ck, more Suicide Squad spinoffs!" HBO Max has just added eight episodes straight to the series to the genesis Peacemaker, which is based on the Peacemaker master of the gun character from the highly anticipated upcoming movie The Suicide Squad. In the new action adventure comedy series Max Original, John Cena will play the leading role and repeat his role from the upcoming film The Suicide Squad. The film's writer / director James Gunn will write all eight episodes of the series and direct multiple episodes, including the first. Gunn and The Suicide Squad's producer Peter Safran will serve as executive producer on the series, and Cena will serve as co-executive producer.
Peacemaker is based on characters from DC and is produced by Gunns Troll Court Entertainment and The Safran Company in association with Warner Bros. Television. Peacemaker is slated to begin production in early 2021 before Gunn begins writing and directing the next Guardians of the Galaxy film for Marvel, which follows the first two offerings in the franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 . 2, both of which he wrote and directed.
Details on the new series are rare, although we know it will explore the origins of the character who plays Cena in the upcoming film, a man who believes in peace at all costs – no matter how many people he has to kill to get it to get. The series will expand the world Gunn created for The Suicide Squad, which Warner Bros. Pictures is slated to release in theaters on August 6, 2021.
According to Gunn, “Peacemaker is an opportunity to explore current affairs through the lens of this superhero / villain / and the world's greatest douchebag. I look forward to expanding The Suicide Squad and bringing this character from the DC movie universe to the full breadth of a series. And of course, the icing on the cake is to be able to work with John, Peter and my friends at Warner Bros. again. "
Cena said, “I've already said it was a tremendous honor and an incredible opportunity to be part of The Suicide Squad and work with James on an amazing movie. I am so excited to have the chance to work with him again for Peacemaker. We can't wait for the fans to see that. "
"James Gunn has the unique ability to create an expansive universe while bringing the soul and wit of every character to life," said Casey Bloys, chief content officer of HBO and HBO Max. "We look forward to an in-depth look into the world of peacemakers. "
