HBO Mach ordered the first season of eight episodes of the series Peacemaker, dedicated to the eponymous hero from Suicide Squad played by John Cena. The details of the plot were not disclosed, but, according to rumors, he will tell the story of the formation of the Peacemaker – a “radical pacifist” who is ready to fight for peace, regardless of how many people will have to be killed on the way to the goal.
The series is slated to go into production early next year before Gunn begins work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The director spoke about the project:
Peacemaker is an opportunity to look at the current world problems through the prism of this superhero-supervillain – the biggest asshole in the world. I’m thrilled to expand on Suicide Squad and bring this character into a TV show. And I’m glad to have the opportunity to work with my friends at Warner Bros.
John Cena is best known as a wrestler, 16-time world champion. Recently, he has become more active in his acting career, starring in the films “Sex Will Not”, “Ferdinand”, “Bumblebee”, “Fast and Furious 9.” In addition, he runs the program “Who is smarter than a fifth grader?” on Nickelodeon. The actor says about the show:
I said earlier that it is a great honor and an incredible opportunity for me to be part of the Suicide Squad and work with James. And I am incredibly happy to have the opportunity to unite with him again to create Peacemaker. Can’t wait for the fans to see this.
