Due to current world events, filmmaker James Gunn has had a little extra time on his hands, and it's that which led to him dreaming up a TV series spinning out of the events of The Suicide Squad. Officially announced yesterday, the show will put the spotlight on WWE Superstar John Cena's Peacemaker, a character described as a "douchey Captain America" during DC FanDome last month.
While Cena has certainly been making waves as an actor (he'll be a huge part of F9: The Fast Saga next year), giving him the lead role in a superhero TV series is a bold and exciting move, even if Task Force X members like Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, and Captain Boomerang seem better suited to the small screen.
So, who is Peacemaker, why should you care, and what's the plan for this latest, big budget DC TV series? Well, here you will find an in-depth look at his comic book history, what that likely means for both The Suicide Squad and this spinoff, and everything that's so far been revealed about what Gunn and Cena have planned for Peacemaker on television.
This may be an unexpected choice of character for their own series, but the potential is definitely here for something special as you will soon see...
