With the help of Economos (Steve Agee) and Harcourt (Jennifer Holland), plus new team member Adebayo (Danielle Brooks), Peacemaker will presumably save the world, but in his own goofy way. As is the case with Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies, the show will certainly delve into the mindset of its big misfit, mainly by bringing in Robert Patrick as his father Auggie Smith and opening up those childhood wounds. After all, you’re not a superhero if you don’t get emotional closure by yelling at your dad. The whole trailer looks very silly and very stupid, in a good way; Cena’s got great comedy chops, and this looks very much like a thing Gunn would do with some Warner Bros. money. There’s even a little bit of Deadpool energy from Vigilante, who gives some not so helpful advice about the different kinds of killers.


Also, John Cena gets hugged by an eagle. It’s just stupid enough to be charming. Peacemaker makes its way to HBO Max on January 13.
