James Gunn confirmed that along with Peacemaker, his other DCEU projects are still in development.

Following Warner Bros. Discovery’s cancellation of Batgirl last week, some fans of the DCEU were left nervous about the state of some of the upcoming projects that were previously announced to be in development. In particular, James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad spinoff series Peacemaker and other upcoming projects.

James Gunn already acknowledged that fans should be calming down regarding season 2 of Peacemaker, and took to Twitter to confirm that John Cena will be returning as Christopher Smith again. He also confirmed that all his other DCEU projects are still intact in a follow-up tweet:

Peacemaker and Beyond within the DCEU…

Besides Peacemaker, an HBO Max original series centered on Viola Davis as Amanda Waller is also in development. James Gunn also has an unannounced series set in the DCEU, whose details remain a mystery at this point in time. Gunn remains an extremely busy creative force, currently working on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 before his inevitable return for Season 2 of his first The Suicide Squad spinoff series.

Here is the synopsis for the HBO Max original DCEU series:

PEACEMAKER explores the continuing story of the character that John Cena reprises in the aftermath of executive producer James Gunn’s 2021 film The Suicide Squad – a compellingly vainglorious man who believes in peace at any cost, no matter how many people he has to kill to get it!

The DCEU series was created by James Gunn, who wrote all the episodes and directed five of them. The first season of the HBO Max series consisted of eight episodes, with Brad Anderson, Jody Hill, and Rosemary Rodriguez also directing episodes. Clint Mansell and Kevin Kiner composed the DC show’s score.

The HBO Max series stars John Cena, Danielle Brooks, Freddie Stroma, Chukwudi Iwuji, Jennifer Holland, Steve Agee, and Robert Patrick.

Peacemaker season one is streaming on HBO Max. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the future of James Gunn and the DCEU, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
