If nothing else, James Gunn and John Cena know how to keep their promises. Like when they promised that a new trailer for HBO Max's Cena-starring "The Suicide Squad" spinoff series Peacemaker would premiere on New Year's Day (ahead of its January 13 premiere). Well, when midnight hit here on the east coast, that's exactly what we got- and that's exactly what's waiting for you below. Our two biggest takeaways? Eagly's fascinating with Economos's (Steve Agee) butt and the high levels of doubt we have that Wonder woman was "eye-f'ing" him at a party. That's the kind of thing that lands you in a magical golden lasso telling a whole bunch of uncomfortable truths…
So for your New Year's Day look at HBO Max's Peacemaker, check out the newest official trailer below:
And here's a look back at the previously-released official trailer for HBO Max's Peacemaker, set to hit the streaming service on January 13th:
To learn how the upcoming series will build upon what we've learned about him in The Suicide Squad, Gunn and Cena look at what makes Peacemaker tick:
From his shiny helmet & uniform to his pet bald eagle pal, Eagly (yup), see what happens when Peacemaker gets a serious roasting ("Did this dipshit really show up in full cosplay mode?") in this previously-released preview:
Here's a look at Gunn, Cena, Stroma, and others discussing the big bro/little bro dynamic between Peacemaker and Vigilante:
Steve Agee (Super, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Brightburn) rejoins Gunn and Cena when he reprises his film role of John Economos, a warden of Belle Reve Federal Penitentiary and an aide to Viola Davis' Amanda Waller (the actor also portrays King Shark in the film). Danielle Brooks (Orange Is The New Black) joins the series as Leota Adebayo, with Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day) in the role of Auggie Smith. Jennifer Holland (Brightburn) reprises her film role of Emilia Harcourt, and Freddie Stroma (Bridgerton) takes on the role of Adrian Chase aka Vigilante. In addition, Chukwudi Iwuji (When They See Us) as Clemson Murn, Lochlyn Munro (Riverdale) as Larry Fitzgibbon, Annie Chang (Shades of Blue) as Detective Sophie Song, Christopher Heyerdahl (Togo) as Captain Locke, Nhut Le (Kroll Show) as Judomaster, and Elizabeth Faith Ludlow (The Walking Dead) and Rizwan Manji (Perfect Harmony) as recurring characters of Keeya and Jamil. Recently, Alison Araya (Riverdale) and Lenny Jacobson (Narcos: Mexico) have been tapped for the roles of the married couple Amber and Evan, respectively.
Gunn, Brad Anderson (Session 9), Rosemary Rodriguez (The Walking Dead), and Jody Hill (The Righteous Gemstones) direct the eight-episode series. Gunn and The Suicide Squad producer Peter Safran will serve as executive producers, with Cena as co-executive producer. Peacemaker will be produced by Gunn's Troll Court Entertainment and The Safran Company in association with Warner Bros TV. Though specific details on the series are being kept under the same kind of wraps as the film was, Peacemaker explores the origins of Cena's The Suicide Squad character, a man who believes in peace at any cost — no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.
