New Peacemaker Trailer Released to Ring in the New Year

The new year is upon us, which means a number of new comic book-inspired movies and TV shows are on the horizon. Among them is HBO Max's Peacemaker, which will continue the story of Christopher Smith / Peacemaker (John Cena) from the explosive events of The Suicide Squad. With the three-episode premiere of Peacemaker just a few weeks away, HBO Max and writer and creator James Gunn have released a new trailer for the series, which you can check out below.

The Peacemaker series will star Cena, Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo, Robert Patrick as Auggie Smith, Jennifer Holland as Emilia Harcourt, Steve Agee as John Economos, Freddie Stroma as Vigilante, Christopher Heyerdahl as Captain Locke, Chukwudi Iwuji as Clemson Murn, Lochlyn Munro as Larry Fitzgibbon, Annie Chang as Sophie Song, Elizabeth Faith Ludlow as Keeya, and Rizwan Manji as Jamil.

"Peacemaker is an opportunity to delve into current world issues through the lens of this superhero/supervillain/and world's biggest douchebag," creator James Gunn explained when the series was first announced. "I'm excited to expand The Suicide Squad and bring this character from the DC film universe to the full breadth of a series. And of course, to be able to work again with John, Peter, and my friends at Warner Bros. is the icing on the cake."

"I have said before that it has been a tremendous honor and an incredible opportunity to be part of The Suicide Squad and to work with James on what is going to be a fantastic movie," Cena echoed. "I am unbelievably excited to have the chance to team up with him again for Peacemaker. We can't wait for fans to see this."
