Pacifier Showrunner James Gunn has shared key details about the John Cena series now that Suicide Team It is out.
James Gunn is not done with the DC Extended Universe yet. After a positive experience working with DC and Warner Bros. on The Suicide Squad, Gunn quickly began working on an HBO Max series centered on John Cena’s Peacemaker. Slated to debut early next year, Peacemaker will feature eight episodes and five written and directed by Gunn himself.
In a chat with Variety, James Gunn revealed that the John Cena-directed series will focus on the character’s past, which was teased in Suicide squad.
“Well, through history, you learn where Peacemaker came from. There is a moment in the movie where Bloodsport talks about his father and what his father was like, and cuts to a shot of Peacemaker, and Peacemaker nods. That’s the seed of the entire ‘Peacemaker’ series. “
“So we can see Peacemaker with his father, played by Robert Patrick, where he comes from, what he has done, what that means to him and where he is going after all this. Because he’s not an evil person, he’s just a bad guy. It seems irredeemable in the movie. But I think there is more to him. We didn’t have a chance to meet him [in ‘The Suicide Squad’] in the way that we meet some of the other characters. And that’s what the whole show is about. “
James Gunn then went on to discuss how the Pacifier The series will not necessarily attempt to redeem or justify the rather heinous actions the character committed in The Suicide Squad.
“Peacemaker feels like he’s outside. Then that moment in [the bar] The Kind Kitten, when she dances with [the team], and they are connecting with each other for the first time, that’s an unusual feeling for him. And then when you go with your ideals about that sense of connection, you are making that decision about your own emotions. The show is about that. “
Suicide squad He did a great job introducing the character of John Cena, so it will be great to see the character return in his own series. Hopefully, we know more about the character, as well as why he uses a toilet seat as a helmet.
