Peacemaker Promo Introduces The New BFF Team Of Peacemaker & Vigilante

Christopher Smith, aka Peacemaker (John Cena), from "The Suicide Squad" was many things, but a good friend was not one of them. The tighty-whities wearing government-sanctioned assassin, who's so devoted to peace he's willing to kill most anyone to get it, bonded with the rest of Task Force X over the course of their mission to Corto Maltese in James Gunn's DCEU movie, yet didn't blink an eye about having to murder his teammates to keep the U.S. government's involvement in Project Starfish under...

5 Comics To Read If You Love Marvel's Hawkeye On Disney+

John Cena & Robert Patrick in Full Trailer for HBO 'Peacemaker' Series

"The mind is a den of scorpions better left running from, not towards." HBO has revealed the full official trailer for The Suicide Squad spin-off series called Peacemaker, hitting streaming on HBO Max starting in January. While completing work on The Suicide Squad movie last year, James Gunn began writing a spin-off TV series centered on the origins of Peacemaker, portrayed by John Cena.

Peacemaker Trailer: Right Now, The World Needs A Son Of A B****

Everyone handles near-death experiences differently. For trained killers, that tends to lead to just more killing ... and maybe a little bit of self-reflection, too. After stealing the show in James Gunn's "The Suicide Squad" and making a surprise return from the dead in a post-credits scene, John Cena's Peacemaker is back and more violent than ever. The only things that can stop him now are, well, everyone who's currently gunning for his head, a sense of ennui, and a metric ton of daddy issues,...

Peacemaker Clip: Peacemaker Is Totally A Better Superhero Than Aquaman

"I can't believe they're letting me shoot this," Gunn reportedly said on the set of "Peacemaker," the new show for HBO Max centered on John Cena's breakout performance in "The Suicide Squad." When James Gunn said that "Peacemaker" was going to be a "funeral for Warner Bros.," it sounds like he was talking about the type of material, as seen in the latest teaser clip released, where "Peacemaker" talks about smoking weed with the hospital janitor (Rizwan Manji of "Schitt's Creek"), and dropping a ...

Zachary Levi's Guardians Of The Galaxy Audition Landed Him Shazam

Zachary Levi is one of those actors who, like J.K. Simmons and Willem Dafoe, has had a role in both DC and Marvel movies. DC fans know him as the hero of "Shazam," while in the Marvel Cinematic Universe he took over the role of the dashing Fandral from Josh Dallas in "Thor: The Dark World" (only to be quickly killed off in the next movie as director Taiki Waititi cleaned house).Levi almost played a much larger role in the MCU, however. In fact, he was up for the starring, nay, star-lording role ...

Since then, the James Gunn's "Guardians" sequel introduced a villain named "Ego the Living Planet," "Thor: Ragnarok" ended with a giant fire monster wiping out the entire realm of Asgard, and Thanos snapped half the universe out of existence (don't worry, ...

Eternals Credits Scenes Explained: What Does This Mean For The Future Of The MCU?

Marvel's "Eternals" follows in the tradition of the Marvel Cinematic Universe by having a couple scenes waiting to be revealed in the credits. In this case, there's a mid-credits scene and a post-credits scene, and both serve to expand the cosmic side of the MCU. However, both of the scenes also reach into much more obscure corners of the Marvel Comics universe, so don't be ashamed if you were made of questions after the credits scenes rolled out. That's why we're here to have the "Eternals" cre...

James Gunn Cast A Peacemaker Actor Because Of A Scooby-Doo Audition 20 Years Ago

With hits like "The Suicide Squad," "Guardians of the Galaxy," and "Guardians of the Galaxy 2," James Gunn became a cross-over success story from genre darling to one of the most highly-sought after superhero film directors. Before stepping into the world of comic book heroes, Gunn was known for his edgy dive into wannabe heroes with "Super," his love letter to B-movies, "Slither," and an extensive history of working with schlock label, Troma Films.
