John Cena is set to portray the pacifist diplomat in the upcoming DCEU film, The Suicide Squad. He is also set to reprise the role in a self-titled TV series that is going to premiere on HBO Max sometime in January 2022.
James Gunn, the director of The Suicide Squad and the Peacemaker TV series, hasn't announced a premiere date for Peacemaker. However, according to a recent leak, it could be arriving as early as mid-January next year.
When is the Peacemaker premiere date?
First, a word of caution, nothing you're about to read is confirmed. Neither HBO nor James Gunn or any other official source has announced the premiere date for the Peacemaker TV series.
With that said, CBM claims to have come across some interesting information from the DC Press Portal.
According to the aforementioned website, Peacemaker is going to premiere on HBO Max on January 16, 2022. Not only that, but Peacemaker will release with three episodes available immediately followed by weekly releases for the next five episodes.
In addition to this, the same source claimed that the titles for the first three episodes are:
- A Whole New Whirled
- Best Friends Never
- Better Goff Dead
As we've already mentioned, we recommend that you take this information with a grain of salt. But, a January 16, 2022 premiere date does make sense. Gunn has already confirmed on Twitter that eight episodes of Peacemaker are "in the can", giving the series a January 2022 premiere window on HBO Max.
Whether this is true or not, one thing we can't deny is how hyped audiences are for Peacemaker. We can only expect the excitement surrounding Peacemaker to grow after the premiere of The Suicide Squad.
As for what Peacemaker is going to be about, Warner Bros. seems intent on keeping everything under lock and key.
The only thing that we have to go on about Peacemaker is Gunn and Cena's recent interview, where the two talked up how much more leeway the TV series will have in terms of violence and gore because it has a TV-MA rating as opposed to The Suicide Squad, which only has an R rating.
In the meantime, you can look forward to watching John Cena star in Vacation Friends with Lil Rel Howery, Yvonne Orji, and Meredith Hagner on August 27 on Hulu.
