HBO drops new trailer for Peacemaker series
The Suicide Squad's James Gunn created, wrote and directed most of the series.
HBO has released a new trailer for its Peacemaker series.
John Cena is set to reprise his role from James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad as the titular vigilante killer who is determined to achieve peace no matter the cost.
A post-credits scene at the end of the film revealed he survived both the fight with Bloodsport (Idris Elba) and the collapse of the Jötunheim reactor.
Set an unspecified amount of time later, the show will see Peacemaker back in the custody of the NSA where he agrees to embark on another mission in order to avoid going to prison.
Steve Agee, Jennifer Holland, Orange Is the New Black’s Danielle Brooks, Chukwudi Iwuji, Freddie Stroma and Robert Patrick also star.
Gunn wrote all eight episodes and directed five of them along with The Machinist’s Brad Anderson, Jody Hill and Rosemary Rodriguez.
The clip premiered as part of DC’s annual Fandome event which also saw the release of new trailers for the upcoming films The Batman, Black Adam and The Flash.
Peacemaker will arrive on US streaming service HBO Max on 13th January 2022 but a UK release date is not yet known.
