The Suicide Squad star Steve Agee is set to return to the DC Extended Universe for John Cena’s upcoming Peacemaker series coming to HBO Max.
While HBO Max might be lacking original content at the moment, there is a lot planned on the DC side for the future with a Green Lantern Corps series, a Gotham Central series set in the same universe as The Batman, and a show centered on John Cena’s Peacemaker —who will first appear in The Suicide Squad. James Gunn is set to write all eight episodes of the upcoming series in addition to directing a few. Gunn has teased that other characters from The Suicide Squad will appear in the series and now Deadline is reporting that one of them will be Steve Agee.

Agee has two roles in The Suicide Squad as a Belle Reve Federal Penitentiary warden and as the notable villain of The Flash, King Shark. According to Deadline, Agee will be joining John Cena’s Peacemaker series as the Belle Reeve warden who will appear in the film.
