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...

Peacemaker Is An Unconventional Love Story Between Two Characters

Believe it or not, writer and director James Gunn is kind of a sucker for love stories. Sure, his love stories involve alien tentacle monsters and murder, and they're not always romantic, but they're love stories nonetheless. Whether it's the twisted love triangle of "Slither," the loss of love driving a man to murder in "Super," or the parent-child bonds of "The Suicide Squad," Gunn is a twisted genius when it comes to understanding what tugs at our heartstrings. In the new series "Peacemaker,"...

Peacemaker First Look: Check Out John Cena's New Team On Upcoming HBO Max Series

James Gunn's "The Suicide Squad" introduced us to John Cena's Peacemaker, an overly zealous patriot who will happily burn America to the ground in order to "save" it. Gunn enjoyed writing the character so much that he decided in post-production of "The Suicide Squad" to give Peacemaker his own show. We now have a first-look at the HBO Max series, which Gunn describes as "a really f**ked up version" of the 1970s "Captain America" TV movie he loved as a kid. Peacemaker First Look In an interview w...

“Nobody peed in the wade pool,” Flula Borg said. “I want you to know that. Nobody.” The first 15 minutes of The Suicide Squad let audiences know exactly what they are in for when it comes to director James Gunn‘s new DC supervillain film.

‘The Suicide Squad’ Director James Gunn Says He’s Spoken With Warner Bros. About More DC Projects

James Gunn must be a very busy man because lately, his name has been everywhere. Gunn is especially popular this summer, because of his upcoming blockbuster The Suicide Squad – but that’s not the only reason he keeps making headlines. Gunn is particularly in demand right now, already splitting his time between two major studios, Marvel and Warner Bros. Could he continue splitting that time? according to the filmmaker, maybe. After his brief split from Marvel Studios following social media ba...

‘The Suicide Squad’: Warner Bros. Told James Gunn to “Do Whatever the F–k You Want,” Says Jai Courtney

When director James Gunn was fired from Marvel for some old tweets in 2018, things were looking grim. Thankfully, Warner Bros. snatched him up before he’d even really fallen, handing him the reins on The Suicide Squad. Gunn previously directed ensemble perfection in Guardians of the Galaxy, so WB clearly had hopes he could do the same for their group of rag-tag antiheroes. But with more blood and violence. While Marvel’s family-friendly ethos meant certain things were off limits, the DCEU of...

‘The Suicide Squad’: 5 Things We Learned From James Gunn About the Supervillain Blockbuster

The Suicide Squad isn’t quite the movie that you’re expecting. Oh, sure, James Gunn’s latest superhero blockbuster is as funny, violent, cynical, and chaotic as its red-band trailer indicates. But it’s not just a bloody good time. Amid all of the mayhem, there are moments of genuine emotion. Many of the action scenes are harrowing, not comedic. Gunn plays the biggest character beats completely straight, infusing The Suicide Squad with both tragedy and heart. “This movie really was about just ma...

‘The Suicide Squad’ is James Gunn’s Twist on ‘Dirty Dozen’ for the R-Rated Superhero Era [Set Visit Report]

If there was a way to physically walk into James Gunn‘s mind, the folks at the set of The Suicide Squad might have figured it out. Or at least, they put on a good show for me and the group of journalists who had the chance to visit the set of Warner Bros.’ latest DC comic book movie in Atlanta, Georgia in November 2019. But before we got to see the sets of The Suicide Squad, we were ushered into a generic conference room that looked like Gunn’s mind had thrown up all over it (if that analogy do...

CS Soapbox: The Best and Worst DC FanDome Panels!

CS Soapbox: The Best and Worst DC FanDome Panels! DC FanDome set a benchmark for virtual conventions this past weekend. While not as “live” as advertised, the Comic-Con-esque event was largely a success across all metrics. Even with the last-minute decision to air many panels during a second-half scheduled for September 12, DC Comics spoon-fed fans the goods regarding hotly anticipated movies, tv shows and video games. Aside from the occasional cringe-worthy commentary, DC FanDome experienc...

James Gunn Says There Won’t Be a ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 4’, Calls Harley Quinn His Favorite Character He’s Written

James Gunn recently confirmed that both The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 were still on track to meet their intended release dates. Of course, there’s always the chance that might change since there’s a lot of time between now and when those movies will get released. Thankfully, The Suicide Squad is being worked on remotely in post-production, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 isn’t slated to start shooting for a long time. Even so, Gunn took the time to tease both movies by...

Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn May Return for ‘Suicide Squad 2’ After All

It seemed like Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn had flown the nest. After becoming the breakout star of 2016’s Suicide Squad, Robbie set a spin-off for the beloved Batman rogue in the upcoming “girl gang” film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). Harley Quinn’s future looked bright as Warner Bros. went through upheaval after upheaval, and the fate of the Suicide Squad sequel and the multiple Jared Leto Joker spin-offs were put into question. But now, following the s...
