Peacemaker poster teases the HBO Max series starring John Cena

Peacemaker poster John Cena The Suicide Squad spinoff series

Although The Suicide Squad has been unleashed, we certainly haven’t seen the last of those wacky supervillains. James Gunn had so much fun with The Suicide Squad that he approached Warner Bros. about developing a spinoff TV series revolving around John Cena’s Peacemaker. We’ll finally get to see our first look at Peacemaker during DC FanDome this October, but a new Peacemaker poster has been released to give us a little taste. Check it out below!

The eight-episode Peacemaker series will debut on HBO Max early next year, and James Gunn has previously teased why he wanted to spend more time exploring a character who he describes as a “piece of shit.

Peacemaker has a clear set of ideals that I find really interesting, You know: ‘I want peace no matter how many men, women and children I need to kill to get it.’ Sounds like nonsense, but it also makes a lot of sense. And you see in John’s performance how he does not feel good about it – something I thought was the seed of an entire eight-episode show.

Gunn explained that the series will involve a “big science-fiction story” but that it will also explore some real-world issues. “He represents a part of the world populace that is problematic to say the least,” Gunn said, “and puts him in a situation where he has to face the choices he’s made throughout his life and the extremity of his views.” Peacemaker doesn’t have an official release date yet, but it’s expected to debut on HBO Max in January 2022.
