HBO Max has revealed a new clip of Peacemaker, the upcoming The Suicide Squad spinoff series starring John Cena.
In the footage, the titular hero steps out of a car with a custom license plate that reads, â€œPSS-MKR.â€ He then meets the rest of the cast at a restaurant for dinner. Peacemaker is asked why exactly heâ€™s wearing his costume to dinner, to which he replies that itâ€™s not a costume, itâ€™s â€œa uniform.â€
They all then proceed to make fun of him.
Set to premiere in January 2022,Â PeacemakerÂ is an eight-episode series that serves as a follow-up to writer-director James Gunnâ€™s DC Extended Universe filmÂ The Suicide Squad, which premiered last month. The series co-stars Steve Agee, Danielle Brooks, Robert Patrick, Jennifer Holland, Freddie Stroma, and Chukwudi Iwuji.
PeacemakerÂ will explore the origins of the character that John Cena first portrayed in James Gunn’s 2021 film,Â The Suicide SquadÂ â€“ a compellingly vainglorious man who believes in peace at any cost, no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.Â Watch John Cena as Peacemaker inÂ The Suicide SquadÂ onÂ HBO GO.
