HBO Max has debuted a new trailer for Peacemaker, the spinoff series of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is set to premiere on HBO Max on January 13, 2022. Cena’s Christopher Smith / Peacemaker is introduced in The Suicide Squad as a self-righteous psychopath who wants to achieve “peace” by any means necessary. Peacemaker will be diving deeper into what drives the character, revealing how he became the ruthless killer he is in the movie.
Peacemaker cast includes Danielle Brooks, who Gunn has described as the show’s co-lead; Robert Patrick as Peacemaker’s father; Freddie Stroma as Vigilante; and Chukwudi Iwuji as Clemson Murn.
Peacemaker contains eight episodes, written and directed by James Gunn. The episodes are not yet titled. Besides writing the episodes, Gunn is the main showrunner for the spinoff series.
The cast of Peacemaker is a fair mix of criminals and vigilantes, with true heroes being a rarity in this part of the DCEU. We’ll have to wait and see if any of them are as messed up as Peacemaker, but that doesn’t seem plausible.
The Suicide Squad’s John Economos will be played by Steve Agee once again. Amanda Waller’s (Viola Davis) assistant, Economos, is the warden of the Belle Reve Penitentiary. During the production of the movie, Agee also served as a stand-in for King Shark, however, the final voice was delivered by Sylvester Stallone. watch the new trailer below.
