Peacemaker showrunner James Gunn is teasing more The Suicide Squad spin-offs.
James Gunn stunned fans when he and Warner Bros. announced that a Peacemaker spin-off was in the works even before The Suicide Squad debuted. Now that the Task Force X film has been out for some time, Peacemaker is set to debut on HBO Max this coming January. The solo series will focus on John Cena’s patriotic (anti-)hero going on a wide variety of missions and coming to terms with his chaotic past. It’s unclear if the show will be a miniseries or not, but it’s clear that James Gunn has more DC madness up his sleeve.
After a fan on Twitter asked James Gunn if fans can expect more The Suicide Squad spin-offs, the director responded with a playful, conniving gif that wholly implies yes.
It’s unclear what the Peacemaker showrunner has up his sleeve but we’re hoping for a Weasel or Bloodshot spin-off. HBO Max recently debuted a brand new look at Peacemaker, which will considerably expand the world created in The Suicide Squad. James Gunn has a wide variety of projects in the work at Marvel, including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and a Christmas Special that will hit Disney Plus next year.
Peacemaker was created by James Gunn, who wrote all the episodes and directed five of them. The first season will consist of eight episodes, with Brad Anderson, Jody Hill and Rosemary Rodriguez also directing episodes. Clint Mansell and Kevin Kiner will compose the score.
Peacemaker stars John Cena, Steve Agee, Danielle Brooks, Robert Patrick, Jennifer Holland, Freddie Stroma and Chukwudi Iwuji.
Peacemaker premieres on HBO Max on January 13, 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming John Cena series, the future of Aquaman in the DCEU and more, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more content!
