We might be looking at James Gunn’s takeover of the DCEU. While he probably won’t be given the same level of creative control that Zack Snyder once held, Gunn is clearly staking his claim on the DC Universe characters following The Suicide Squad. Not only does he have a brand new, still unknown project in the works, but his HBO Max series Peacemaker is coming and will be teased next week at DC FanDome.
But first, a clip from Peacemaker has arrived and it’s damned hilarious. John Cena returns as the Suicide Squad team’s most psychotic character, which is saying something. In this clip, we see him arrive to a diner meeting in full bucket helmet and colorful outfit, earning all of the jokes they rightfully deserve. Um, he also has a pet eagle. In the backseat of his car.
Also seen in this clip are The Suicide Squad co-stars Steve Agee and Jennifer Holland as John Economos and Emilia Harcourt, who pissed off Amanda Waller in that film, thus earning this shit assignment. Also seen are Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo and Chukwudi Iwuji as Clemson Murn.
Peacemaker hits HBO Max in January 2022!
