Second ‘Peacemaker’ Trailer Brings James Gunn’s Shenanigans to HBO Max


Peacemaker is a little over a month away from hitting HBO Max, and today the streamer finally released the main trailer for the series.


Check it out below:


The new preview continues to build on the promise of an absolutely wild series, led by a very charismatic and all-around weird Christopher Smith (Peacemaker). However, clocking in at 3:19, it is a bit too long and perhaps shows a bit too much about the plot. During the series’ DC FanDome panel, one of the executive producers also confirmed that James Gunn, who wrote all eight episodes, directed five of them, though he didn’t reveal which ones or who is directing the rest.


John Cena will be reprising his role as Peacemaker from The Suicide Squad and serves as executive producer on the series. He will be joined by Chris Conrad and Danielle Brooks, who play anti-hero Vigilante and a brand-new character called Leota Adebayo, respectively. Jennifer Holland, who starred in James Gunn’s Brightburn, and Steve Agee will also reprise their characters Emilia Harcourt and John Economos respectively from The Suicide Squad. Robert Patrick will play another character named Auggie Smith — Christopher’s father.


Peacemaker will debut on HBO Max on January 13, 2022.
