As the name suggests, PEACEMAKER is a character who loves peace so much, even doing the wrong way for peace. Before seeing John Cena’s action as a PEACEMAKER in his latest series, let’s first look at the 5 facts

Worked on boredom
James Gunn began scripting the solo series PEACEMAKER in August 2020. He wrote the entire first season during the 8 weeks of COVID quarantine.

The reason being that he was tired of being stuck at home during the pandemic, at first he didn’t really believe that the series would be approved. But after seeing his work, HBO finally agreed with this script. The shooting process for the PEACEMAKER series has even taken place from January 15 to July 11, 2021.

First Series in DCEU
PEACEMAKER isn’t the first series to feature DC Comics superheroes. Previously there were SUPERGIRL, ARROW, THE FLASH and many more.

However, the series that tells of Christopher Smith will be the first television series set in the DC Extended Universe. That means Peacemaker is told in the same world as all the JUSTICE LEAGUE heroes you’ve watched before including MAN OF STEEL to WONDER WOMAN.

Vigilante’s Second Appearance
Besides PEACEMAKER there are also other heroes featured in this series. He is Adrian Chase aka The Vigilante. This series will be the live action appearance of these two characters after previously appearing in the ARROW series.

Adrian Chase himself has a stance similar to PEACEMAKER. After he loses his family, he becomes a Vigilante ready to punish criminals, something the world’s justice system cannot do.

Originally Not John Cena
Cena was not the actor’s first choice to play PEACEMAKER. James Gunn originally wanted the role of Drax in GUARDIAN OF THE GALAXY, Dave Bautista. However, Bautista prefers to star in ARMY OF THE DEAD, directed by Zack Snyder.

After Bautista resigned from THE SUICIDE SQUAD project, Gunn finally chose John Cena to play PEACEMAKER. John Cena has indeed been on the rise in recent years by starring in several big films such as FAST N FURIOUS to TRAINWRECK.

Not an Original DC Creation
The character created by Joe Gill and Pat Boyette is not actually a character created for DC Comics. PEACEMAKER is a comic released by another company called Charlton Comics.

Unfortunately, Charlton Comics went bankrupt in the 1980s. After being acquired by DC Comics, the copyrights for various Charlton Comics characters, including PEACEMAKER, also belonged to DC.
