HBO Max Drops A New Clip Of Peacemaker Series
And even in a few seconds, the show looks funny and promising.
In a new trailer for its upcoming programming slate, HBO Max has nonchalantly tucked away a few glorious until-now unseen seconds of its Peacemaker series starring John Cena. As was recently announced, The Suicide Squad spin-off is expected to hit the streaming service in January.
The HBO Max series will focus on a new team of "black ops combating something catastrophic that's facing the planet," creator James Gunn said, who wrote all of the series and directed five episodes. This is the first DC Extended Universe television series. Check out this brief new clip to get a very abbreviated taste.
Not many details are known about the upcoming series with even Gunn shutting down rumors of a Bane cameo or appearance. The Suicide Squad turned out to be a huge hit for Warner Bros./HBO Max, with Peacemaker having been announced before the movie even came out.
Jennifer Holland and Steve Agee will be reprising their roles movie roles, joined by Chukwudi Iwuji (John Wick 2, When They See Us) as Murn--a mercenary working for Amanda Waller, while Freddie Stroma (Bridgerton) plays popular comics character, Vigilante. Danielle Brooks (Orange Is The New Black) plays sixth team member Adebayo. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gunn said of her, "She isn't always treated the best by the people around her."
It's a safe bet that at least a little more will be revealed at DC FanDome, the upcoming virtual event that will take place on October 16.
