I can’t wait for people to find out where the Peacemaker team is going in season two!”
the character of peacemakerinterpreted by John Cena, first appeared on movie screens. It was with Gunn’s particular vision to make a movie of the suicide squad, as the character of Christopher Smith was known to audiences. However, long before the public could see the tape, the studio had already agreed with the creator to make the series.
The reasons were explained by Gunn himself. There was no monetary need to exploit a character that was well received by viewers. On the contrary, this need was born from the creative point of view and everyone involved immediately agreed.
“In the movie, Harley [Quinn] she gets a really full story about herself, she gets a full arc. Bloodsport has a complete history. Rick Flag has a complete story. Ratcatcher 2 has a complete story. They all learn something about themselves, sometimes good things, sometimes bad things, but Peacemaker is an idiot and he’s still an idiot. He’s a scumbag in the movie,” Gunn explained. “I think there is something under that. We see a lot in flashbacks about the origins of Ratcatcher, about the origins of Bloodsport, but you don’t get that with Peacemaker. John [Cena] and I talked a lot about the character. Where is the? How does he feel? “.

In addition to Cena, Steve Agee as John Economos, Jennifer Holland as Emilia Harcourt, Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo, Chuwudi Iwuji as Clemson Murn and Freddie Stroma as Adrian Chase or “Vigilante”.
