Agents Argus Economos (Steve Agee) and Harcourt (Jennifer Holland) are introduced in the most current picture of Peacemaker, along with newbies Murn (Chukwudi Iwuji), Adebayo (Danielle Brooks), Vigilante (Freddie Stroma), and, of course, Peacemaker (John Cena). Based on the post-credits sequence from The Suicide Squad, this ragtag gang will presumably have to save the planet, and we can only imagine the mayhem (and murder) that will ensue.
Peacemaker will premiere on HBO Max in January, with a total of eight episodes, and writer/showrunner James Gunn teased EW with what fans of The Suicide Squad can anticipate from the next chapter in the story. Peacemaker and his crew will apparently be “black operations battling something horrific approaching the Earth,” according to Gunn.
Mrun is a mercenary who works for Waller; Vigilante will live up to his name (“You may not have guessed, but his character is a vigilante!” says Gunn); and Adebayo “is not always treated in the best way by the people around her, but despite their differences with Peacemaker, they form a bond,” according to Gunn.
