John Cena received a spin-off for the Peacemaker character even before The Suicide Squad even finished filming. Warner executives loved his performance so much that he received an HBO Max series. Now fans are getting their first look at this upcoming show.

WarnerMedia released their first teaser for The Peacemaker series. John Cena plays the titular crime fighter, an anti-hero that is also described as an A-hole by people who know him best.

James Gunn was behind this spin-off series, much like The Suicide Squad film. Cena was happy to reprise the Peacemaker role since Gunn was attached to the series. Steve Agee, Danielle Brooks, Robert Patrick, Jennifer Holland, Freddie Stroma, and Chukwudi Iwuji also star in the HBO Max show.

The new show premieres on HBO Max in January, 2022. You can check out the teaser below.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
