The Suicide Squad was quite the hit with fans and critics alike, with many praising Gunns writing and character work. With so many memorable moments and characters, fans are eager to get more of the newest characters within the DCEU. Well, many fans will get their wish, just not as they expect. Peacemaker is the first spinoff series for the DCEU, centering around John Cenas Christopher Smith, a character whose quest for peace will continue on in an eight-episode-long first season.
Virtually nothing is known about the first season of Peacemaker, aside from that he’s gotta save the world, alongside John Economos and Emilia Harcourt. The cast and crew recently made an appearance at the Television Critics Association. The panel showcased some of the series first footage along with the opening credits, which definitely aren’t what many expected them to be. Each episode of Peacemaker will open with a Dance Number for the opening sequence, a sequence that act actor Robert Patrick reportedly had the most fun with.
While this seems a bit unorthodox for the genre, it’s certainly something out of the left field for Gunn to pull. This will definitely set the tone for what how you can expect the season to go, especially with such an eccentric patriot like Peacemaker, and let’s hope he works better with this team than the last one.
All eight episodes of Peacemaker were written by James Gunn, who directed five of the episodes. Gunn will serve as an executive producer on the series alongside both John Cena and Peter Safran.
