Peacemaker is no longer with the Suicide Squad, but that doesn’t mean his mission has changed much in the new trailer for his eponymous show for HBO Max. This time around, Peacemaker, once again played by John Cena, teams up with another group of misfits to kill targets on behalf of the United States government.
The new trailer introduces us to some of the most important people in Peacemaker’s life and new mission, including his father (Robert Patrick), a costumed character named Vigilante (Freddie Stroma), and a team of very strange voices performed by Danielle Brooks, Steve Agee, Jennifer Holland and Chukwudi Iwuji. Along with his new team, Peacemaker also has a new mission that includes the murder of men, women and children to keep the peace in America, which he isn’t quite sure what to think.
Of course, alongside those moral dilemmas, the trailer is also full of gunshots, explosions, action, and a bald eagle who appears to be Peacemaker’s new partner. Peacemaker is created and written by James Gunn (Suicide Squad, guardians of the galaxy) and the trailer is full of his unmistakable humor. Gunn also directed five of the show’s eight episodes.
Peacemaker will air on HBO Max starting January 13, 2022.
