John Cena and James Gunn’s Peacemaker series could be 2022’s best Superhero show, and WIG WAM provides two of their classics «In My Dreams» and «Do You Wanna Taste It». The follow-up to The Suicide Squad, which will land on HBO Max on January 13, could wind up being better than anything Marvel has in store.
John Cena is back as the titular character, a man so dedicated to peace he doesn't care who he has to kill to achieve it. He'll be joined by some other cast members returning from The Suicide Squad: Jennifer Holland is back as Emilia Harcourt, who worked with Amanda Waller in the movie, as is Steve Agee – who was both the physical stand-in for King Shark and Emilia's co-worker John Economos (he'll be playing the latter in the series).
"Every character has their own story," Gunn told Collider. "So there's the six main characters of Peacemaker, Leota Adebayo, who's Danielle Brooks, Emilia Harcourt, who's Jennifer Holland, Vigilante, who's Freddie Stroma, Clemson Murn, who is Chukwudi Iwuji, and John Economos, who is Steve Agee. It's really an ensemble about those six characters."
Also in the cast is Elizabeth Faith Ludlow as Keeya, and Rizwan Manji as Jamil. Apart from their names, nothing else is known about these two just yet.
Other cast members are Christopher Heyerdahl as Captain Locke, Nhut Le as Judomaster, Annie Chang as a detective named Sophie Song, Lochlyn Munro as her partner Larry Fitzgibbon, Alison Araya as Amber, and Lenny Jacobson as Evan. Robert Patrick plays Peacemaker's father.
