James Gunn Says More Characters Appear In John Cena’s Peacemaker Series

Who else from 'The Suicide Squad' might show up in the Peacemaker series?

More DC characters will show up in John Cena’s Peacemaker series according to writer and director James Gunn.

Fans are already excited to see John Cena’s Peacemaker in The Suicide Squad, but following the news that he’s been given his own spin-off series from director James Gunn – many are eager to see what the actor gets up to in the film. Although most recently, Gunn refused to reveal when the Peacemaker series will take place so he doesn’t spoil the upcoming DC film featuring John Cena and other stars like Margot Robbie and Idris Elba.

Although it’s not clear if the Peacemaker series will be a prequel series or a follow-up to The Suicide Squad, James Gunn briefly revealed that other DC characters from the film will show up in John Cena’s Peacemaker series after one fan suggested including Pete Davidson’s Blackguard. Unfortunately work on the HBO Max show won’t begin until 2021, so it’ll be some time before we get to see what the director has planned for the series.
