A new Peacemaker trailer would be out in a couple of days, teased John Cena when he crashed the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) Special Edition.
The wrestler-turned-actor is getting his standalone show on HBO Max, and it seems like the team is going all out to promote it. Cena showed up at SDCC during the masquerade contest, where everyone dressed up as Peacemaker.
True to his anti-hero character, Cena took a hilarious jab at a fan yelling her love for him. He thanked fans for their love of the show, calling them “the driving force.”
The cherry-on-top moment was when he teased a new trailer for the upcoming show, making fans scream in excitement even more. The new trailer for Peacemaker will be released on December 3, 2021.
The whole charade of him crashing the meet was to raise the stakes higher by dropping a trailer announcement, and it did just that.
Check out a video by Parks and Cons of Peacemaker at SDCC:
Cena never dropped character, even as he met fans and recorded videos (with some NSFW moments sprinkled in it) as the anti-hero Peacemaker.
After the first epic trailer release, anticipation for Peacemaker has been on the rise. The show is a spinoff of James Gunn’s successful The Suicide Squad reboot. Gunn is also directing five and writing all episodes in the Peacemaker series.
A new clip for Peacemaker was also released on the day of SDCC on their website peacemakeriscoming.com. The official Peacemaker Twitter account posted a fun tweet, and everyone is loving it.
Meanwhile, the Peacemaker series will tell the story of his origins and his journey after The Suicide Squad. It takes off from him being hospitalized to showcasing his broken father-son relationship, his best friend Eagly, his new teammates, and of course, the villains.
The eight-episode Peacemaker will premiere on HBO Max on January 13, 2022.
Peacemaker is a DC Extended Universe series that will delve into the past of the titular character, who’ll make his cinematic debut in James Gunn’s DCEU film, The Suicide Squad (2021). The character will be portrayed by John Cena, who will reprise his role in the HBO Max series.
