The fate of the content associated with HBO Max is up in the air right now. With Warner Bros. Discovery combining the service with Discovery+ next year, scrapping Batgirl and Scoob!, and taking original films off the platform months after arriving, people are worried about what will happen to their favorite shows and movies that have been known on the platform. For Peacemaker season 2, James Gunn reassures fans it is moving forward with a new image of leading star John Cena in costume and clearly delivering some peace as he has some blood on him, and we can’t tell if it is his or someone else’s.
Peacemaker for James Gunn was just a part of his success with DC. After his firing from Marvel, which became temporary as the studio rehired him, he turned to a collaboration with Warner Bros. for his The Suicide Squad. The R-rated take worked well enough to get a series with the America-loving anti-hero for more world-saving adventures with plenty and digging deeper into who he is as a character.
Peacemaker season 2 safe with James Gunn

As WB recently stated a 10-year plan for the DCEU, it is hard to see what could possibly happen moving forward. The Flash will be the great reset, although the film is surrounded by controversy over Ezra Miller’s criminal activity. With Peacemaker James Gunn also has other projects he has teased but not confirmed. So, it seems that we might get a significant influence from him on the future of the DCEU.
The debut season of Peacemaker was created by James Gunn. He wrote, directed five of the eight episodes, and executive produced. It starred Cena, who also executive produced. Joining him for his antics were Danielle Brooks (Orange Is the New Black), Freddie Stroma (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), Chukwudi Iwuji (Designated Survivor), The Suicide Squad‘s Jennifer Holland and Steve Agee, Robert Patrick (Terminator 2), and Annie Chang (Shades of Blue).
No release date is known for Peacemaker season 2, except that it will be in 2023. It will make for a huge year for the filmmaker as he releases Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on May 5, 2023.
