HBO Max is giving fans a first look at Peacemaker, the hotly anticipated spinoff series to James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad reboot, which stars John Cena as the titular “hero,” a psychotic costumed killer with a metal helmet who is convinced he is America’s greatest patriot.
Gunn is directing the Peacemaker series, which picks up at a hospital following the events of The Suicide Squad. Christopher “Peacemaker” Smith (Cena) wakes up only to be told by an orderly that there is no superhero known as the Peacemaker. Jennifer Holland returns as her Suicide Squad character, Emilia Harcourt, with Robert Patrick as Peacemaker’s disapproving father.
In the clip shared on Tuesday, John Economos (Steve Agee), Harcourt and two other handlers wait for Peacemaker, who arrives in his costume, or “uniform” as he calls it, with a bald eagle in tow. “He’s got the looks, the car, and the best sidekick ever — all in the name of peace,” HBO Max tweeted about the clip.
The streamer screened it as part of a virtual event to mark the upcoming European launches of the streaming service. HBO Max will roll out in various European territories starting later this month. Peacemaker will premiere on HBO Max in January.
Check out the Peacemaker clip below.
