John Cena received a spin-off series for The Peacemaker character even before shooting for Suicide Squad 2 was finished. Executives liked his performance so much that he received an HBO Max series. That is why he had to miss WrestleMania, because he was in Canada shooting that show. Now Cena is free to leave the Great White North.
James Gunn made the announcement official on Monday evening. The Peacemaker is 100% shot and wrapped after 131 days of production. We’ll have to see what they come up with next year when the series finally drops.
And that’s a wrap on Day 131 & Season One of #Peacemaker. Less than a year ago I pitched a vague pitch to @HBOMax – here we are 11 months later with 8 astounding episodes in the can. Cast & crew: I love you all. Thank you for putting your hearts & souls into this project.
John Cena has already given some spoilers about character. The Peacemaker is apparently a real “piece of sh*t” that nobody should like. He’s a complicated character, but at least this will give John Cena a chance to play a heel again since Vince McMahon denied him that opportunity for a decade in WWE.
Cena will also be getting back to WWE very soon. His match against Roman Reigns at SummerSlam is a lock at this point. He has other projects in the pipeline, but WWE is Cena’s next stop at this juncture.
