James Gunn says Peacemaker Show is more grounded than Suicide Squad
Writer / director James Gunn has said that the upcoming HBO Max spinoff series, directed by John Cena, Peacemaker is more grounded than The Suicide Squad.
Writer / Director James Gunn Says John Cena’s Upcoming HBO Max Series Peacemaker is more founded than The suicide squad. As a newcomer to the DC Extended Universe, Peacemaker debuts in Gunn’s The suicide squad, which is available now in theaters and on HBO Max. The film sees Cena’s character join Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Bloodsport (Idris Elba), Ratcatcher 2 (Daniela Melchior), Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian), King Shark (Sylvester Stallone) and a handful of other villains in their suicide mission on Corto Maltese. Peacemaker has been described as a “douchey Captain America,” who will kill countless men, women and children in the name of peace.
Following his work on Warner Bros./DC Films’ The suicide squad, Gunn wrote a Peacemaker spin-off for HBO Max and directed five of its eight episodes. The series, which will likely take place after the flagship film with flashbacks exploring Peacemaker’s origins and possible incarceration, has recently been filmed. Besides Cena, Peacemaker stars Danielle Brooks (Orange is the new black), Robert Patrick and Chukwudi Iwuji. In agreement with The suicide squad post-credits scene, Steve Agee, Freddie Stroma and Jennifer Holland will reprise their respective roles of John Economos, Vigilante and Emilia Harcourt.
In an interview with THR, Gunn spoke The suicide squad and the next one Peacemaker series. Now that he’s editing Peacemaker, Gunn was asked what particular genre the show is about to be. Read what he had to say below:
“There are a lot of similarities with The suicide squad in that it’s not forbidden, but there are also a lot of things that are very different, in that it’s calmer in some ways. It’s very specifically a different group of people, so it’s a bit more about the company. One of the protagonists is Peacemaker and one of the protagonists is Danielle Brooks, who plays Leota Adebayo. And she has a very different political worldview from Peacemaker’s. So it’s just a bit of what’s going on in the world, but being a TV show as well, you really have more time to dig into these characters and a lot deeper into their drama and comedy. So there are a lot of similarities, but it’s even more grounded, more natural, and more real. But it’s still in a great sci-fi storyline that lasts for a season. The main storyline lasts this season, so that doesn’t mean there is only one season of Peacemaker. “
Be how Gunn practices with Peacemaker, The suicide squadThe humor and the overall quality of must remain. Aside from the giant alien starfish, Cena said that Peacemaker will build on much of what was in the movie. The suicide squad explores the (very) twisted patriotism of his character, which in many ways makes him a villain more than the other members of Task Force X. It wouldn’t be a stretch to compare him to Marvel’s American agent, another character who recently made their small screen debut in Marvel Studios’ “More Grounded” series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Gunn’s satirical style fits Cena’s character like a glove The suicide squad. Peacemaker your a la Amazon’s The boys, should expand Gunn’s corner of the DECU, opening the door to even more spinoffs. Then Gunn will start working on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, his last film with this particular gang of misfits. The suicide squad is already certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and should do very well in his opening weekend. we’ll see if Peacemaker may prove to be just as effective when it hits HBO Max early next year.
