Even though we’re still ten months or so away from the release of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, WarnerMedia has been so impressed with the film that the company has already pushed a spin-off into development. Sooner or later, HBO Max will begin rolling cameras on Peacemaker, a streaming series featuring John Cena as he reprises his role from the upcoming Squad follow-up. In fact, one new report suggests photography on the series will begin as soon as January in Canada.
According to the new report, Peacemaker will film in Vancouver under the working title The Scriptures from January 18th until June 15th. That means barring any further COVID-related delays, the production will be wrapped just in time for Gunn to hit the press tour for The Suicide Squad.
Over the weekend, Gunn shared an image of a new Xbox Series X on his social media profiles, revealing to fans he would be having plenty of time to play the game the next few weeks as he’s started to quarantine ahead of production on the show. As with most countries, Canada is requiring those who travel to the country from COVID “hotspots” to quarantine for two weeks before conducting regular business.
The Suicide Squad is currently set for release on August 6, 2021 while Peacemaker has yet to get a release date from HBO Max.
