John Cena Peacemaker

James Gunn Gives Peacemaker Season 2 Update

James Gunn has given a promising update on the status of Peacemaker Season 2.

While appearing on the Inside of You podcast, host Michael Rosenbaum asked Gunn if Peacemaker would return despite Gunn’s busy schedule as a co-CEO of DC Studios and the writer-director of Superman: Legacy. Rest assured, Gunn stated Peacemaker Season 2 will happen.

“Peacemaker’s coming back right after Superman. That’s my next thing,” Gunn said. “I’ll go straight into Peacemaker from Superman.”

Gunn also mentioned Waller, the spin-off series starring Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, will come sometime before Peacemaker Season 2. Waller will include a lot of the same characters from Peacemaker.
