‘Peacemaker’: James Gunn Explains Why He Wanted to Make a Series of the Character for HBO Max

Among so many interesting characters from the movie ‘The Suicide Squad‘, the Peacemaker (John Cena) was eventually chosen as the subject of a spinoff TV series HBO Max.

But why the Peacemaker?

During an interview for the channel Supes, the director James Gunn was asked the same question, to which he replied:

“First, I really got along with John Cena. We became good friends during the recordings. He’s a funny guy and I thought it would be fun to continue working with him.”

He continued:

“I also think that a lot of the other characters that we saw in ‘The Suicide Squad‘, had significant changes. We could see a development in Rathunter 2, in Bloodthirsty, in Polka Dots… Peacemaker is the only one that remains as it was at the beginning of the film. John and I talked about where the character came from, who he was, who his father was and all these different things that we didn’t see in the movie. So I knew there was a lot more history to explore.”

Anyone who has followed the character in the comics knows that there is a lot more complexity to him than just a colorful costume, a big gun and a shiny helmet, as shown in the movie.

In the source material, the Peacemaker has a controversial past, as he is descended from Nazi bloodlines and believes his helmet contains the voices of his family’s victims.

This is an element that can be inserted into the series, as revealed Gunn.

“You’ll also find out a few things about the Peacemaker’s helmet in the series, something we didn’t find out in the squadron movie. You will find out a lot of different things about the character… What are his talents, what are his weaknesses, but there will also be plenty of room for his team.”
