Peacemaker Learns Some Tough Lessons On 'The Choad Less Traveled'

The first three episodes of "Peacemaker" are pure James Gunn-flavored goodness, following Christopher "Peacemaker" Smith (John Cena) as he tries to reconcile his demented worldview with his burgeoning sense of empathy. In the first episode not directed by Gunn, the series writer and creator, the formula gets a little bit darker. Guided by the steady, sadistic hand of Jody Hill ("The Righteous Gemstones"), "The Choad Less Traveled" finally cracks open Peacemaker's past, and it's not pretty. There...

James Gunn Says Vigilante Is Much More Of A Sociopath Than Peacemaker

In "The Suicide Squad," John Cena's Peacemaker is a pretty irredeemable jerk. After his third-act heel turn, it's hard to imagine rooting for him. So how does the "Peacemaker" HBO Max series make viewers not only cheer for Peacemaker, but feel empathetic towards him? James Gunn, who wrote the series and directed five of the eight episodes, uses a wide variety of storytelling techniques to make Christopher Smith, aka Peacemaker, more sympathetic. One that works surprisingly well is that the story...

Peacemaker Is A 'Best Friend, For Never' In The Middle Of Sci-Fi Insanity

The first episode of James Gunn's series "Peacemaker" helped set the stage in the wake of "The Suicide Squad" and introduced us to Peacemaker's new world-saving, crime-fighting team, but the second episode, "Best Friends, for Never," ignites the dangerous new plot that will be unfolding on HBO Max.

Every Song We Heard In Peacemaker Episodes 1-3

(This article contains SPOILERS for "Peacemaker" episodes 1-3. Proceed with caution.)Whether you've been a long-time fan or you just recently found his work, you know that James Gunn is a master needle-dropper. His entire filmography touts incredible soundtracks that not only crawl into your ear and get stuck in your head for days, weeks, and months, but they basically act as another character in his stories. While most filmmakers will use music to simply set the tone for a scene, Gunn can decon...

Peacemaker Has A Crisis Of Conscience In 'Better Goff Dead'

We're two episodes into "Peacemaker," and absolutely nowhere closer to learning what a "butterfly" actually is or how the team's going to achieve peace. Thankfully, the third episode of James Gunn's rip-roaring superhero-adjacent series answers at least one of those questions. In the episode, titled "Better Goff Dead," Christopher Smith, AKA Peacemaker (John Cena), is faced with a foe he cannot defeat: his budding conscience. The first two episodes didn't take the crew anywhere crazier than an a...
