John Cena’s Peacemaker S2 Is Pushed Back by James Gunn

John Cena had already earned quite a name for himself within the industry and his star as Peacemaker was one of the best things that ever happened to him. The first season was a complete success with good reviews and critics’ ratings, the fans especially liked the main character of the show who is ready to do whatever it takes to maintain peace, and killing off people, innocent or guilty is nothing to him.

While it has been officially announced that the show will return with a second season, according to a recent Twitter post by James Gunn, it does not seem that the second season will return any time soon. A question was asked to James Gunn about the second season of Peacemaker, and Gunn replied with, “Yes after Superman”. Though it may come as a shock to many fans out there, for the last couple of weeks, Gunn has been actively talking about Superman: Legacy and how he is busy preparing for it and making it such that it becomes the new shareholder for DCU.

James Gunn Is Busy With Both MCU and DCU Projects

James Gunn is certainly a man with many skills, not only is he leading DCU with his new projects, but he is also in charge of the MCU’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. It makes one think as to what it takes to control two multi-billion dollar franchises at the same time, producing blockbusters with both of them, not lose quality and still be ready with the next project.

The complete reboot of the DC Universe brought about by James Gunna and Peter Safran is undoubtedly some tough work and the fact that the whole franchise now rests on their shoulders is quite the burden to carry. With the introduction of Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters, DCU is aiming to come back strong and shock the entire world with its movies and tv shows. Out of all the announced movies and tv shows, many will take on the big screen for the first time as they have not been taken out of the comics, and fans are expecting heavily from those projects.

Peacemaker Season 2 has been announced but will be released after Superman: Legacy.

Superman: Legacy will premiere on 11 July 2025.
