After 131 days of filming, the director of The Suicide Squad, James Gunn, has confirmed that the production of the first season of Peacemaker, the new DC Comics series that will be released on HBO Max, has been completed.
The announcement was made through his official Twitter account, where he expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the cast and crew for their hard work on the project. The end of the recordings occurs less than a month before the expected theatrical release, and on HBO Max, of The Suicide Squad, in which the character of John Cena will debut.
The metahuman will be one of the many villains who will join Task Force X in the new DC Comics adaptation; however, Peacemaker will be the protagonist of his own series. In this sense, the specialized portal Screen Rant details that This title – to be released in 2022 – will take place before the events of the feature film from which it is derived and will serve as a kind of origin story.
As for the cast, Collider confirms that the former WWE fighter will share the scene with Freddie Stroma, who will play Vigilante, a sniper who can heal quickly and who could be the antagonist. Also, international media indicate that the cast would be completed with Steve Agee, Danielle Brooks, Robert Patrick, Jennifer Holland, and Chukwudi Iwuji.
On the other hand, the aforementioned media reports that Gunn has written the eight episodes that make up the first season, and has directed five of them. It has also emerged that the remaining three episodes are directed by Jody Hill (Superbad), Brad Anderson (Titans), and Rosemary Rodríguez (Jessica Jones).
