James Gunn is dubbing HBO Max’s upcoming Peacemaker collection starring John Cena as a sequel to The Suicide Squad.
Earlier than James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad got here out, many thought the Peacemaker collection could be a prequel detailing the supervillain’s origin story. Whereas we’ll most likely get slightly little bit of that within the upcoming present, The Suicide Squad‘s post-credits scene revealed that John Cena’s Peacemaker survived his encounter with Bloodsport.
Based mostly on the field workplace numbers for The Suicide Squad, it’s unclear if we’ll get a sequel to the movie. James Gunn shared on Twitter he’s open to directing a possible sequel however sees Peacemaker as a continuation of the primary movie:
Right here is the synopsis for The Suicide Squad:
Welcome to hell—a.okay.a. Belle Reve, the jail with the very best mortality charge within the US of A. The place the worst Tremendous-Villains are saved and the place they may do something to get out—even be part of the super-secret, super-shady Job Pressure X. In the present day’s do-or-die task? Assemble a set of cons, together with Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everybody’s favourite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them closely and drop them (actually) on the distant, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking by a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at each flip, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission, with solely Colonel Rick Flag on the bottom to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s authorities techies of their ears, monitoring their each motion. And as all the time, one fallacious transfer and so they’re lifeless (whether or not by the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anybody’s laying down bets, the sensible cash is in opposition to them—all of them.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad stars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena, Joel Kinnaman, Sylvester Stallone, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Peter Capaldi, David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Michael Rooker, Pete Davidson, Nathan Fillion, Sean Gunn, Flula Borg, Mayling Ng, Tinashe Kajese, Steve Agee, Jennifer Holland, Alice Braga, Juan Diego Botto, Joaquin Cosio, Storm Reid, and Taika Waititi.
