HBO Max’s The Suicide Squad spin-off series “Peacemaker” has added four new members to its cast.
Brooks is set to play Leota Adebayo in the series, along with Robert Patrick as Auggie Smith, Jennifer Holland, who will reprise her role of Emilia Harcourt from The Suicide Squad film, and Chris Conrad as Vigilante/Adrian Chase. They join previously announced stars John Cena in the title role and Steve Agee as John Economos. Cena and Agee also reprise their roles from The Suicide Squad movie.
Gunn will write all eight episodes of Peacemaker and will direct multiple episodes, including the first. Gunn and Safran will serve as executive producers of the series, with Cena as co-executive producer. Based on characters from DC, Peacemaker will be produced by Gunn’s Troll Court Entertainment and The Safran Company in association with Warner Bros. Television. Peacemaker is scheduled to begin production in early 2021, prior to Gunn beginning work on the next Guardians of the Galaxy film.
While details about Peacemaker are being kept under wraps, the series will explore the origins of the character that Cena will play in the upcoming film, a man who believes in peace at any cost — no matter how many people he has to kill to get it. The series will extend the world that Gunn is creating for The Suicide Squad movie, which is scheduled to be released in theaters by Warner Bros. Pictures on August 6, 2021.
The Suicide Squad is an upcoming superhero film based on the DC Comics antihero team Suicide Squad. The film is written and directed by James Gunn, with the main cast consisting of; Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena, Joel Kinnaman, Peter Capaldi, and Viola Davis.
