James Gunn Says Marvel Filmed a Key Scene In Peacemaker Finale
Warning: There are spoilers ahead for Peacemaker episode 8!
Peacemaker was largely in its own corner of the DC Extended Universe for most of its first season. However, the Peacemaker finale surprised fans with a brief appearance of the Justice League: Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and The Flash. Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller even made cameos as Aquaman and Flash, respectively. According to series creator James Gunn, Marvel Studios actually filmed part of the cameo scene for the show.
“Marvel shot it for us, which was really nice of them,” said Gunn during an interview with Deadline. “It was nice because we shot it on the set and with the crew of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. You know, they were kind of paying us back, though, because DC, Chukwudi Iwuji, we used the Peacemaker crew to shoot Chukwudi’s screen test for Guardians 3, and DC was really cool about that, and then Marvel was really cool about letting us use our crew to shoot Ezra.”
Additionally, Gunn spoke about the chance to let two of DC’s primary heroes drop some R-rated dialogue.
“You hear Aquaman just cursing,” said Gunn. “I think both of those guys [Momoa and Miller] deserve total props because [Peacemaker] does f*** with both of them the whole season, and so the fact that they have such a great sense of humor about themselves, I really appreciate both those guys and what they did. The Ezra outtakes are probably the greatest things I’ve ever had. He literally went on for 30 minutes, and he hadn’t seen the show. I just showed him the scene of them walking away, and he kept calling Harcourt the little blonde boy. The best outtakes of all time are from him.”
