DC’s fan base is vast, and we have a piece of good news for all those fans. DC is landing a TV Spin-off of the upcoming Suicide Squad. Suicide Squad in itself is a much-anticipated movie, and now HBO Max has ordered the eight episodes series spin-off of this film. Calling a spin-off before even the release of Suicide Squad shows how confident DC is about the movie. James Gunn, who was in the controversies a few years ago and was removed from the chair of the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3, will be directing Peacemaker. If you are wondering what happened with Gunn then? Don’t worry, it all worked out; you can read it here. If you are here to read about the cast and check if it really is John Cena, it indeed is him! So when can you get to watch the show? And what it could reveal? Let’s find out!
Peacemaker Release date: When will it premiere?
HBO Max officially announced the series on 23rd September 2020. However, they did not reveal much information; they gave us enough clues to estimate the release date. We know that James Gunn will be working on Peacemaker before Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3. This tells us that HBO is really in a hurry. The Production of Peacemaker will begin in early 2021. The Suicide Squad is gonna release on 21st August 2021. It is pretty clear that the makers want to release the series near the release date of Suicide Squad as both of them are connected. So you can expect this series by the end of 2021.
Peacemaker Cast: Who is in it?
As of now, no other cast member has been announced other than John Cena. John Cena is playing Peacemaker, you better keep a close eye, or you won’t be able to watch him at all in the show. If you don’t know what I am saying, let me give you a hint, he and Drax have somewhat similar capabilities. Jokes apart, John Cena is a sixteen-time WWE world champion; you guys can go on and have a debate on WWE in the comment section. Peacemaker is a guy who can do anything to maintain peace; he can even kill. The makers have revealed not much about the character, but Cena called him “douchey Captain America,” now you can create an image in your mind.
Working alongside @JamesGunn on #SuicideSquad was an absolute masterclass in how to best bring beloved characters to life in a new and fun way. I cannot wait for the #DCUniverse to experience more of absurdity that is the Peacemaker in this new project on @hbomax!!! pic.twitter.com/PZ9dOa7Dzj— John Cena (@JohnCena) September 23, 2020
Peacemaker: What is exactly it about?
First of all, it is a sign that the Suicide Squad is gonna be big! Second of all, we got to know that Cena delivered a scene-stealing performance in The Suicide Squad, and Warner Bros just can’t get over that. So they decided to give the guy his own series, cool! James Gunn, who has a tight schedule nowadays, said that fans can get to know the Peacemaker‘s origin and why he is the way he is. They can decide for themselves if he is a hero or a douche bag but what is certain is that they are in for some laughter. Some fans are speculating that this series can also act as a prequel of The Suicide Squad. So this is what you can expect from the show.
Peacemaker Trailer: When can we watch it?
Only one of the cast members have been revealed to the audience; this means that fans have to wait for a long time to get a trailer. We will update you about the Peacemaker trailer as soon as the word comes out; however, Don’t expect it before the mid of 2021.
