James Gunn has a full plate!

Can DC Studios co-head James Gunn handle Peacemaker season 2? The filmmaker reveals how he’s working on the series while still directing Superman.

Peacemaker season 2 has finally started filming. While a relief to many fans excited to see the series once more, some DC fans worry James Gunn may be spreading himself too thin with the productions of Peacemaker and Superman overlapping. When asked how he’s able to handle the workload, Gunn revealed he isn’t alone, with multiple directors stepping in to help helm Peacemaker.

“I only have a few days on weekends for [Peacemaker] – other directors start soon.” Gunn revealed on Threads. “I’ll be directing some of the episodes (I’m directing today). But there are three other great directors joining me for the season.”

It certainly makes sense that James Gunn wouldn’t be handling Peacemaker season 2 alone, as the first season was an anomaly in being a show helmed by only one director. However, the amount of active projects Gunn has to handle may still be worrying, having to juggle the show, Superman, post-production on Creature Commandos, and all other duties of a DC Universe co-chair. Here’s to hoping he finally gets a break once this is all over!

Everything Fans Know About Peacemaker Season 2

Peacemaker season 2 sits at an odd place in the DC Universe. James Gunn insists everything prior to Superman and Creature Commandos won’t be canon to the reboot, but that the series will have an explanation that both makes sense and isn’t a “huge part” of the story.

John Cena will return as the titular Peacemaker for season 2. Joining him in the new DC Universe are Steve Agee as John Economos, Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo, and Jennifer Holland as Emilia Harcourt. It’s also been confirmed that Freddie Stroma will appear in another DC project as Vigilante, though there’s been no official confirmation of his return to Peacemaker.
