Suicide Squad Spin-Off Peacemaker Adds Four New Cast Members

When They See Us' Chukwudi Iwuji are among the newcomers.


HBO's upcoming Suicide Squad spin-off Peacemaker has reportedly gained four new cast members. Chukwudi Iwuji (When They See Us) will be a series regular, while Lochlyn Munro (Riverdale), Annie Chang (Shades of Blue), and Christopher Heyerdahl (Togo) will each be recurring guest stars, according to Variety.

They will join previously announced cast members Danielle Brooks, Steve Agee, Robert Patrick, Jennifer Holland, and Chris Conrad--and of course John Cena in the titular role (which he's said will essentially be a "douchey Captain America").

All that's known about the most recent cast members is the name of the characters they will be portraying. Reportedly--and this still doesn't tell us much--Iwuji will play a character named Clemson Murn, Munro will play Larry Fitzgibbon, Chang will play Detective Sophie Song, and Heyerdahl will play Captain Locke. For now, anything beyond this information would unfortunately be speculation.

Suicide Squad's director, James Gunn, will be writing and directing Peacemaker. Suicide Squad is set to premiere simultaneously on HBO Max and in theaters, as part of a dramatic move by Warner announced earlier this month.
