Peacemaker Just Let Us Know This Bizarre Character Exists In The DCEU

"Peacemaker" recently dropped its first three episodes on HBO Max and it's just as wacky and wild as everyone was hoping it would be! However, like James Gunn's other work, the series is more than just crazy fun: it also injects a surprising amount of heart into these installments. Some fans wondered why, out of all the standout characters in "The Suicide Squad," John Cena's Chris Smith was the one most deserving of a spinoff? "Peacemaker" not only answers this question rather gleefully, but als...

In the new series "Peacemaker,"...

Peacemaker Review: The Suicide Squad Spin-Off May Be James Gunn's Vulgar, Violent Masterpiece

Writer and director James Gunn is a master of combining dark humor with heartfelt earnestness to create some of the weirdest, most wonderful movies in all of cinema. With "The Suicide Squad," he was given keys to the biggest possible playground, the DC Comics universe, and he delivered a story about found friendship among society's rejects that both embraced and subverted the superhero genre. With his new series, "Peacemaker," starring John Cena as the toilet-bowl-helmeted sorta-hero, Gunn takes...

HBO Max rings in a raunchy new year with Peacemaker red band trailer (ars technica)
