One Final Red Band Trailer for Gunn's 'Peacemaker' with John Cena
"This task force doesn't officially exist." HBO has unveiled another new red band the Peacemaker series, streaming on HBO Max in a few weeks. While finishing The Suicide Squad movie last year, James Gunn began writing a spin-off TV series centered on the origins of "Peacemaker", portrayed by John Cena. This picks up exactly where that leaves him, and continues when he returns home as a disgraced "hero" of sorts. The origin of the DC superhero so dedicated to world peace that he is prepared to use any and all force of arms to achieve it. The series cast includes Cena returning, with Steve Agee, Danielle Brooks, Robert Patrick, Jennifer Holland, Freddie Stroma, and Chukwudi Iwuji, plus Lochlyn Munro, Annie Chang, Christopher Heyerdahl, Elizabeth Ludlow, Rizwan Manji, and Nhut Le as "Judomaster". I really enjoyed what Gunn did with The Suicide Squad movie, which makes me more than excited to watch this – even though Peacemaker is such an asshole character. But that's the point? The eagle is the best part.
Here's the final red band trailer (+ poster) for James Gunn's Peacemaker series, from HBO's YouTube:
A new team and a new mission. All in the name of peace. The origin of the DC superhero so dedicated to world peace that he is prepared to use force of arms to achieve it. Peacemaker is a spin-off series for HBO created and written by American writer / filmmaker James Gunn, director of the movies Slither, Super, Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and this year's The Suicide Squad; he also wrote the screenplay for Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead and Greg McLean's The Belko Experiment. At least one episode is directed by filmmaker Brad Anderson (director of the movies Next Stop Wonderland, Happy Accidents, Session 9, The Machinist, Transsiberian, Vanishing on 7th Street, The Call, Stonehearst Asylum, Beirut, Fractured). Based on the Peacemaker character created by Joe Gill & Pat Boyette. Gunn said he initially came up with this idea "mostly for fun", but it became a real possibility after DC Films asked him if there was a character in The Suicide Squad that he'd like to make a spin-off series about. HBO will debut the Peacemaker series streaming on HBO Max starting January 13th, 2022 in just a few weeks. Who's ready?
