HBO has revealed the first Peacemaker clip ahead of the HBO Max series debuts in January 2022. Written by James Gunn, who also directed five of the eight episodes, the follow-up to The Suicide Squad will focus on John Cena’s character from the film and further flesh out the DC Extended Universe.
In the clip below, Cena’s Peacemaker makes quite the introduction with who he’ll be working with in the series. It’s also revealed that he has a pet bald eagle named Eagley and why he wears his “uniform” at most times.
