Peacemaker: Suicide Squad Spin-Off Series Adds Four New Cast Members

The Suicide Squad is one of, if not the most anticipated project coming in 2021! This time around MCU director James Gunn gives his own spin on Task Force X. Bringing in some familiar faces like Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, the cast is filled with a lot of wonderful actors and outlandish characters! One of those obscure characters that will be getting a spin-off series on HBO Max is Peacemaker!

The “douchey Captain America” will be played by WWE wrestler John Cena. Having some movie roles under his belt like Bumblebee, for example, Peacemaker marks this as his first comic book role! The series will take before the events of the film and explore the origin of a man who believes in peace at any cost, no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.

So far the cast, besides Cena, includes Danielle Brooks, Steve Agee, Robert Patrick, Jennifer Holland, and Chris Conrad. Thanks to Variety, four more actors have been cast! Joining the show is Riverdale’s Lochlyn Munro, Togo star Christopher Heyerdahl, Chukwudi Iwuji from When They See Us, and Shades of Blue actress Annie Chang! Iwuji’s role will be a series regular while Munro, Heyerdahl, and Chang are recurring.

The article says that Munro’s Fitzgibbon is a wry and kind character who is Detective Song’s partner and friend. In late October, James Gunn mentioned that Suicide Squad comic book writer John Ostrander will be playing the character. Production on Peacemaker is set to begin in early 2021. Gunn will write and direct.

The Suicide Squad is set to release in both theaters and HBO Max on August 6th, 2021. Once that’s out of the way, Gunn will finally get to work on the much-anticipated threequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3! There’s also going to be a Christmas special which was announced at last week’s Disney investor meeting.
