Today I was finally able to finish Season 1 of Peacemaker. No spoilers just my take on the show. I have to admit the hype is real. The show is very entertaining and fun. It can get dark and gory, but still has that “James Gunn” feel to the show. I’d even say John Cena was meant to play the Peacemaker.
The show takes place right after the Suicide squad movie, so if you haven’t seen it it may help to watch it first. Both Suicide Squad and Peacemaker are on HBO Max. Right now it’s looking like with Zach Snyder not currently in the picture, James Gunn is doing what James Gunn does. Take a “not so popular” character(s) from comics and making them likeable and fun. You’d be asking yourself “why have i not read or heard of these guys before”. I do see some characteristics from Guardians of the Galaxy Quill in the Peacemaker. From my view I feel like Peacemaker was what Gunn wanted to go and do with Guardians, but maybe Disney stepped in and said to keep it down on the violence and language. Right now I feel like we are getting the visualization of what James Gunn has always wanted to do with a comic book movie/series. Too keep this short or me my favorite character is Vigilante, the other characters show great chemistry with each other and make the show entertaining. They do touch on the other popular characters the Batman, flash and such in a very creative way. The intro to the show has a dance that I’m sure you are seeing or starting to see people do on social media. This show is defenitly a hit, and can’t wait to see where they go with Season 2, with James Gunn back as Director and writer of the season.
