Following the announcement of an upcoming Matt Reeves Batman spinoff, HBO Max has ordered Peacemaker starring John Cena. A spinoff of James Gunn‘s upcoming The Suicide Squad film, the series is just the latest in the partnership between HBO Max and DC Comics.

Gunn will serve as writer, occasional director and executive producer with Cena and The Suicide Squad producer Peter Safran taking on co-executive production duties. HBO’s streaming platform has signed for an eight-episode season that will delve into the origin story of Christopher Smith, a pacifist diplomat committed to peace at any cost. Murderous at times, the character will function as an interesting lens of the superhero and supervillain relationship.

The first season of Peacemaker is set to begin production in early 2021 and is scheduled to arrive on HBO Max August 2021.

For more entertainment news, Netflix has added a third Baki series, Hanma Baki – Son of Ogre to its lineup.
