Peacemaker will star John Cena as Christopher Smith/Peacemaker, who will make his debut in James Gunn’s upcoming The Suicide Squad. The eight-episode series is currently filming and will serve as “an opportunity to delve into current world issues through the lens of this superhero/supervillain/and world’s biggest douchebag,” according to Gunn, who is writing and directing the series. The series will take a more mature tone compared to the other DC Comics TV series currently airing, such as The Flash and Supergirl.
The Suicide Squad, meanwhile, is in post-production and is scheduled to premiere in theaters and on HBO Max on Aug. 6. While it will serve as both a loose sequel and reboot of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, Gunn confirmed that viewers do not need to see Ayer’s film to understand the new one.
