Murphy's Multiverse -

‘PEACEMAKER’ Original Series in the works at HBO Max

Following last month’s explosive DC Fandome panel, we got our first look at James Gunns The Suicide Squad. It revealed the newest roster of the team of misfit villains. In a surprising turn of events, it seems that the spotlight will shine on particular character following the film’s release. John Cena‘s Peacemaker will be getting his own HBO Max series.

Gunn revealed that he would be sticking around in the DC Universe for a little bit longer. He has begun development of an original series for the HBO Max streaming service that’ll follow the The Suicide Squad character. Gunn is set to write all episodes and will direct a few. Producer Peter Safran also set return to work on the project with John Cena reprising the role. Peacemaker will consist of an eight-episode run. A release date for the project is currently unknown but production is set to begin early 2021 before Gunn gets to work on Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3.

Peacemaker is an opportunity to delve into current world issues through the lens of this superhero/supervillain/and the world’s biggest douchebag. I’m excited to expand The Suicide Squad and bring this character from the DC film universe to the full breadth of a series. And of course, to be able to work again with John, Peter, and my friends at Warner Bros. is the icing on the cake.

Cena also shared his enthusiasm for the show.
