Though the primary season of Peacemaker continues to be filming and will not launch till subsequent 12 months, author/director James Gunn is already interested by future seasons of the present. On Twitter, he shared an article about his future tasks and mentioned, “I can’t inform you how a lot I respect the oldsters at @hbomax. Their humanity & assist of my artistic imaginative and prescient on the #Peacemaker present – regardless of quite a few obstacles alongside the way in which – is past examine. I solely pray that the solid, crew & I are equally good companions.”
A fan commented on it asking if there have been any DC characters that did not make the reduce for the primary season of Peacemaker. Gunn responded by saying, “Sure. Saving somebody for season two…”
The Peacemaker sequence will likely be a by-product of Gunn’s upcoming movie The Suicide Squad which releases in theaters and HBO Max on August 6, 2021. John Cena will painting Peacemaker in each the movie and the sequence, however it isn’t identified whether or not the present will likely be a prequel or sequel to the film. Gunn has persistently said that The Suicide Squad will likely be very lethal and kill off a lot of the characters, so John Cena’s Peacemaker has a great probability of biting it. Nonetheless, if the Peacemaker sequence is actually a prequel, it is attention-grabbing that Gunn is already planning on a Season 2. I predict that the revelation of a possible Season 2 implies that Peacemaker will survive The Suicide Squad, however Gunn is understood for his narrative purple herrings.
As for what character he is teasing in his tweet, it is unattainable to know at this level. There are tons of big name DC characters that Peacemaker has interacted with within the comics. Characters like Blue Beetle, Nightwing, The Query, Captain Atom, and even one of many Watchmen could possibly be some enjoyable guesses – all of which Peacemaker has a historical past with. My guess is that Gunn is considering of a reasonably well-known determine, however selected to avoid wasting them for the second season in case HBO Max needed to go in a special course.
James Gunn has apparently discovered his filmmaking area of interest as his slate is chock stuffed with superhero tasks. The Suicide Squad releases in August, Peacemaker is presently filming, Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3 and the Guardians Vacation Particular start filming later this 12 months, and now Peacemaker Season 2 is probably on the desk. Moreover, Gunn has expressed his want to do extra movies and exhibits set within the DC universe, particularly with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. A possible Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy film has been pitched, and James Gunn’s identify has been in the course of a few of these rumors. It is potential that Gunn has lastly discovered his residence with the DCEU.
Peacemaker will star John Cena as Peacemaker, Steve Agee as John Economos (reprising his function from the upcoming The Suicide Squad), Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo, Robert Patrick as Auggie Smith, Jennifer Holland as Emilia Harcourt, Chukwudi Iwuji as Clemson Murn, Chris Conrad as Adrian Chase/The Vigilante, and Christopher Heyerdahl as Captain Locke. Peacemaker will premiere on HBO Max in January 2022.
