New Peacemaker Trailer Shows Off Its Serious Side (and Lots of Guns)

by nerdyminutes


The new trailer for Peacemaker appears to show a more complex and serious side to the character — not that it doesn’t also include its fair share of cinematic explosions and heavy-duty weaponry.

Just over a month remains before John Cena’s character returns for HBO Max’s Peacemaker. With that in mind, a new trailer for the show has launched which seems to show off a more complex side to the superhero/villain.

After quickly becoming a fan-favorite in this year’s The Suicide Squad, James Gunn is back working with the character once again for the upcoming HBO Max series. In the show’s new trailer (which you can check out above) we see a number of sides to Cena’s character. From dealing with family matters to questioning his own desire to fight for peace at any cost, it seems as though the killer has developed a new sense of morality perhaps lacking in previous outings.

While the trailer leads us to believe that there may be glimpses of a lighter side to Peacemaker, it quickly hints at the challenges that may lie ahead for the character. “You told me to kill kids, you didn’t say why,” Peacemaker asks mercenary Clemson Mern. “Because right now, the world needs a son of a bitch,” he glumly responds during a climactic point in the clip.

Although the trailer includes a number of other similar moments hinting at the inner turmoil that the character may be presented with, it isn’t without its fair share of action either. At one point the character goes as far as taping a grenade to a Russian tank shell before hurling it at a group of people. You know, because, “a grenade blows up just two people.”

Speaking about Peacemaker earlier this year, Gunn delved further into his plans for the show and what it will bring to DC. “Peacemaker is an opportunity to delve into current world issues through the lens of this superhero/supervillain/and world’s biggest douchebag,” said Gunn in a press release. “I’m excited to expand The Suicide Squad and bring this character from the DC film universe to the full breadth of a series. And of course, to be able to work again with John, Peter, and my friends at Warner Bros. is the icing on the cake.”

Peacemaker is set to debut on HBO Max on January 13, 2022. For more from the show, make sure to check out this article detailing how Gunn cast one of the show’s actors due to a 20-year-old Scooby-Doo audition.
