‘Peacemaker’ Season 2 Begins Production as James Gunn Shares Helmet Pic


More than two years after the end of its first season, “Peacemaker” is finally rolling on a new batch of episodes.

DC Studios co-chairman and co-CEO James Gunn took to Instagram on Saturday to reveal a selfie reflected in Peacemaker’s signature headgear. Gunn simply titled the picture “Day 1 S2. 🧜‍♂️.” The mermaid emoji is a nod to the show’s fans, as in the first season Vigilante (Freddie Stroma) revealed it was his favorite emoji, saying it means “happy, sad and everything in between.”

Gunn created and directed the first season of the Max superhero show, which stars John Cena as the violent yet sensitive Peacemaker. The first season also starred Danielle Brooks, Chukwudi Iwuji, Jennifer Holland, Steve Agee and Robert Patrick as Peacemaker’s father, White Dragon.

After the Season 1 finale, Gunn spoke with Variety about his overall vision of the character and his journey.

“The most important thing for me in the first season was who Peacemaker was and where was he going,” he said. “What was his personal journey? The Butterflies and the plot and all of that is secondary to who he was as a character and what his changes were, as well as the other characters and where they began and where they end, because they all have little changes for themselves — with the exception of Vigilante, who’s sort of a straight line the whole time. So I know where Peacemaker starts and where he ends, but I’m playing with other ideas around that and how that’s gonna play out.”
