We’re still nearly a year out from The Suicide Squad‘s release, but already Warner Bros. is pushing ahead with further plans to turn John Cena into the world’s most muscular chrome vibrator.
HBO Max has reportedly given an eight-episode, straight-to-series order to Peacemaker, a The Suicide Squad prequel focusing on the origins of Cena’s titular antihero. Squad writer-director James Gunn is writing the entire run, and will direct several episodes.
As Gunn and Cena laid out in The Suicide Squad‘s sneak peek, Peacemaker is essentially Captain America as a heartless douchebag, indiscriminately killing in the name of “peace.” Or, in other words, an accurately updated Captain America, right!?
Until we’re allowed to go to bars again, this will be the acme of TV-VCR’s satire.
