“Peacemaker” Expands Cast Ahead of Production Start
The cast of Peacemaker continues to grow as production will commence in Canada within a matter of weeks. Deadline announced a few new faces are joining Jennifer Holland, Chris Conrad, and Danielle Brooks, who got announced late last month. With story details still under wraps, all we know is that this series will serve as a prequel to the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel. It focuses on the character of Peacemaker, who is played by John Cena. The cast has grown a bit more today, as four additional actors are jumping into the fray for the upcoming HBO Max original series.
Lochlyn Munroe, Annie Chang, Christopher Heyerdahl are joining as recurring guest stars. Chukwudi Iwuji will take on the character known as Clemson Murn, who is set to be a series regular. Munroe will play Larry Fitzgibbon. Annie Chang is taking on the role of Detective Sophie Song, and Heyerdahl is Captain Locke. Many of these characters do not have comic counterparts, so they could genuinely be original characters created for the series. Knowing Gunn and the choices he made for The Suicide Squad, there’s always a chance he popped his head into the unknown corners of the DC universe and picked a few oddballs to join his roster.
Peacemaker currently has no set release date, but the premiere will be sometime next year. Of course, the series will most likely debut sometime after The Suicide Squad has hit theaters and HBO Max. Gunn is returning as writer and director for the series before he starts work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
