Like most things built by human hands, James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad isn’t big enough to fit all of John Cena, so his character, Peacemaker, is getting his own spin-off series/origin story on HBO Max. While the exact nature of the series is still under wraps, the streaming service just announced a few more names who will join Cena, each one adding a new layer of hype.
Gunn wrote all eight episodes of Peacemaker and will direct a few of the episodes, including the premiere. Cena and Peter Safran (Shazam!) are co-executive producing the series, which will “explore the origins of the character that Cena will play in the upcoming film, a man who believes in peace at any cost — no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.”
