The official Peacemaker Twitter account has called out Steven Soderbergh’s superhero movie claim in a hilarious fashion.

Earlier this week, acclaimed director Steven Soderbergh was asked the question that every filmmaker is asked at some point; would they direct a superhero film? The responses to this question have been varied but usually end with said director bashing the genre and claiming that they would never do one. Steven Soderbergh had a similar answer but not for the reasons you may expect.

During the interview, the director specifically said he wouldn’t do it because he couldn’t wrap his head around any universe where no one was having sex. The responses to this position have been varied but many cannot help but point out the sex that has happened in superhero properties. Now the official Peacemaker Twitter account has chimed in on this discussion.

In a recent post, the Peacemaker account hilariously called out the director in a way one would imagine Christopher Smith would Tweet:

Here is the synopsis for Peacemaker:

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!

Peacemaker was created by James Gunn, who wrote all the episodes and directed five of them. The first season of the HBO Max series will consist of eight episodes, with Brad Anderson, Jody Hill, and Rosemary Rodriguez also directing episodes. Clint Mansell and Kevin Kiner also 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 is now streaming on HBO Max, with new episodes dropping every Thursday. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the series and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
