James Gunn confirms Peacemaker Season Two & Superman tie-in

James Gunn, the mastermind behind “Peacemaker,” has dropped some tantalizing hints about what fans can expect in the upcoming second season of the hit DC series.

Gunn, known for his work on “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “The Suicide Squad,” as well as the co-CEO of the DCU, recently shared insights into how “Peacemaker” will tie into the wider DC Universe, specifically with connections to the iconic superhero, Superman.

In a recent interview with IGN Africa, Gunn revealed that “Peacemaker” Season 2 would delve deeper into the character’s backstory while expanding the show’s universe to intersect with other DC properties. According to Gunn, one of the most exciting aspects is the introduction of elements that directly link “Peacemaker” to the world of Superman as season 2 will take place after the events of the upcoming Superman movie (previously titled Superman: Legacy).

Gunn hinted at the possibility of crossover events and shared universe storytelling, suggesting that “Peacemaker” Season 2 would explore the repercussions of Peacemaker’s actions on a larger scale. This expansion of the show’s narrative promises to bring new layers of depth and complexity to the beloved characters while also offering fans a broader glimpse into the interconnected nature of the DC Universe.

The series will be shot at the same time as Superman allowing for some possible direct connection. While Gunn will be directing Superman, he will only direct some of the episodes of Peacemaker Season 2 to prevent delays in the release of both projects, probably the episodes that most directly overlap with the film.

The announcement of “Peacemaker” Season 2’s ties to Superman comes on the heels of the show’s successful debut, which garnered critical acclaim and a dedicated fan following. Starring John Cena as the titular antihero, “Peacemaker” follows the adventures of a government-trained assassin as he navigates moral dilemmas and confronts his past.

Gunn’s involvement in the project has been a major draw for audiences, given his track record of delivering high-octane action coupled with compelling character development. With his vision steering the ship, “Peacemaker” has emerged as a standout entry in the DC Universe (DCU), offering a fresh take on the superhero genre that resonates with both longtime fans and newcomers alike. While season 1 will not be considered canon in the DCU, season 2 most definitely will be.

As anticipation builds for the upcoming second season, fans can rest assured that “Peacemaker” will continue to push the boundaries of storytelling while exploring the interconnectedness of the DC Universe. Whether it’s team-ups with Superman or unexpected plot twists, one thing is certain: James Gunn and the “Peacemaker” team are poised to deliver another thrilling chapter in the ongoing saga of one of DC’s most enigmatic characters.
