Peacemaker Trailer Runs Down John Cena’s New DCEU Team

Meet John Cena’s new DCEU squad in the latest teaser for Peacemaker, which puts the spotlight on characters like Emilia Harcourt and Leota Adebayo.

A new teaser for HBO Max’s Peacemaker gives a full roll call for John Cena’s newest DCEU team. Fresh off his first onscreen appearance in last summer’s The Suicide Squad, Peacemaker is now set to lead his own spin-off. The profane and bloody Peacemaker will premiere on HBO Max next week and pick up after The Suicide Squad, which nearly killed off Cena’s character. In a post-credits scene, Peacemaker was revealed to have survived his wounds, and he was swiftly recruited by Amanda Waller subordinates Emilia Harcourt (Jennifer Holland) and John Economos (Steve Agee).

Peacemaker therefore finds its titular character (whose real name is Christopher Smith) joining up with a new kind of squad for another mission. His new team members include the aforementioned Suicide Squad holdovers, team leader Clemson Murn (Chukwudi Iwuji), superhero Vigilante (Freddie Stroma), and newcomer Leota Adebayo (Danielle Brooks). Also in the mix is Peacemaker’s father Auggie Smith (Robert Patrick), who series creator James Gunn warns is not a nice guy in the slightest. As Peacemaker is just the first of many DC projects Gunn has in the works, fans can likely expect plenty of surprises across the show’s 8 episodes.

To promote Peacemaker‘s impending arrival, Gunn shared a new teaser trailer for the series on social media. It runs down all five members of Peacemaker’s team, from Harcourt to Adebayo. Based on the snippets of footage included for each, it’s clear all these characters will bring something unique to the group – even if it isn’t yet clear just what that something is right now, at least in the cases of Vigilante and Adebayo.

The last time Peacemaker was part of a team, it didn’t exactly go well. The group at the center of The Suicide Squad was far from the perfect picture of good teamwork, but Peacemaker was by far one of the most difficult members. The whole reason he nearly died was because he betrayed those like Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) and Ratcatcher II (Daniela Melchior). It isn’t yet clear how Chris will respond to his new team on Peacemaker, but the early looks have suggested they’re a better fit for him.

The Peacemaker cast is a mix of comics characters and original creations, so it will be interesting to see how they all mix. Fans already have an idea of what to expect from Chris, Harcourt, and Economos, but the rest of the group should provide some fun surprises. The above Peacemaker trailer does a good job hyping up each character. With just over a week before the show premieres, fans won’t have to wait much longer to see this colorful crew in action.
