Peacemaker Release Date: We witnessed that John Cena did incredibly well in the Fast and Furious franchise. But how will it feel like watching him as a superhero in the DC Universe? James Gunn made this thing happen, introducing John Cena in the Suicide Squad. So, the WWE fighter stepped into the extended DC Universe and now it’s officially the time to continue his story. John Cena is ready with his “Peacemaker” and HBO Max is really excited to drop something refreshing for the fans. But when is “Peacemaker” dropping on our screens? Here is all we know so far.
After a long wait, DC is finally ready to deliver a DC comics book adaptation with its new venture, “Peacemaker”. The streaming giant has picked a page out of the CW Playbook. “Peacemaker” will be an official spin-off for the “Suicide Squad” and will feature John Cena as the central character. Previously, we have seen HBO Max picking up characters from DC comics or stories to craft spin-off shows. But this time with the presence of the fan-favorite star, John Cena, the audience is craving to see him in “Peacemaker”.
Back in September 2020, an official announcement dropped that said Peacemaker will revolve around the character of Suicide Squad. In an interview, Jame Gunn, the man behind the series said, “Peacemaker is an incredible opportunity to delve into the ongoing world issues through the lens of the superhero or the supervillains. I am incredibly excited to expand The Suicide Squad and drag in new characters from the DC film universe. And of course, to be able to work again with John Cena, Warner Bros and Peter is a dream come true.”
So, when is the “Peacemaker” landing on our screens? Here is everything we know about the upcoming series.
Peacemaker Sneak Peek From Comics
We all know that the comics world is vast, Therefore there are a total of three different versions of the Peacemaker in the comics. While each of them brings a compelling story, our favorite John Cena will be playing Christopher Smith’s character. Christopher is a man who is on a mission to bring peace to the world. He is simply crazy about his mission. Smith is so much passion that he implements every drop of his intelligence and aggression to accomplish his mission. However, as the story proceeds, the comic explores the original story that the reason why Smith is so much devoted to destroying evils is that his father was a Nazi. So, it will be insane to witness a cinematic representation of the character. Moreover, witnessing John Cena as Peacemaker will be a treat for the fans.
