HBO Max’s The Suicide Squad spin-off series starring John Cena, Peacemaker, is having some nice tidbits drop here and there lately for fans. The breakout character from James Gunn’s wildly violent superhero film returns to the field with a new mission, “Bring Peace to the world by any means.” And it looks like he won’t be the only gun wielding superhero doing it either. The Vigilante, who has popped up in CW’s Arrowverse (although completely different here and not connected) will be showing up for the gun blasting escapades on Peacemaker. Check out these images from the upcoming series below:
Freddie Stroma has been cast alongside Cena as a fellow DC hero. Stroma will play Adrian Chase, a district attorney who fights crime with the law by day, before taking the law into his own hands as the expert marksman, Vigilante, by night. Chase has often been partnered up with Peacemaker in the comics, and his inclusion in the show implies either a fun rivalry, or a buddy-cop scenario. Stroma, an English actor who appeared in several of the later Harry Potter films as well as The Inbetweeners Movie, is one of several new actors joining the DCEU in this first spin-off effort and steps in after Chris Conrad left the role due to creative differences.
The new footage proves that Vigilante and Peacemaker will find themselves working side by side, possibly on a secret mission for ARGUS, as the two are seen high-fiving each other in the trailer. A full clip from the Peacemaker series released earlier this week, showing some of the humorous, referential tone the show will carry, as well as a look at the new and updated logo. While the main plot of the series remains unknown, fans can expect to find out more about what mission Peacemaker and Vigilante will embark on during the DC FanDome event on October 16.
