James Gunn stunned fans when he and Warner Bros. announced that a Peacemaker spin-off was already in the works The Suicide Squad debuted. Now that the Task Force X movie has been out for a while, peacekeeper will be released on HBO Max in January. The solo series will focus on John Cena’s patriotic (anti-)hero who embarks on a wide variety of missions and must deal with his chaotic past. It’s unclear if the show will be a miniseries or not, but it’s clear James Gunn has more DC craziness in store.
