Peacemaker: If you liked Suicide Squad, you most likely don’t want to miss Peacemaker, HBO Max’s new series about the eponymous anti-hero. Today (16), at DC FanDome 2021, the show won a new teaser with several new scenes. In addition, the release date of the production was also revealed: January 13, 2022.
In the video, we see more of the Peacemaker’s misfit team, as well as a little more of their behavior and relationships. Apart from that, the anti-hero is not just a tough figure and his more sensitive (and comical) side should be addressed.
