By now you have heard Disney have fired James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, about some tweets he made between 2008-2012. Some big names came out to support James but to no avail. There was an online petition to get Disney to hire him back.
In July 30, 2018 the cast of GOTG released a joint statement in support of him. Disney also took a courtesy meeting with James and his agent. However Disney is staying firm on their decision. Back in August, Disney said to put the 3rd GOTG on hold, telling all the pre-production workers to find another job.
Bad news for fans of Guardians of Galaxy but great news for DC as they have hired him to be a writer for Suicide Squad and perhaps directed by him. Suicide Squad came out in 2016. That movie was trashed by critics but I actually enjoyed the movie. This movie starred Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, etc. WB stated the new Suicide Squad movie will be out on August 6, 2021.
The new Suicide Squad movie will have Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, Rat Catcher, Polka Dot Man and Peacemaker. Harley Quinn is an A list character. King Shark is a C list character, The rest of them are D list characters. The D list characters will probably die in the movie in my opinion.
This blog will talk about Peacemaker, Check out my other blogs for the other characters.
Peacemaker first appeared in Fightin’ 5 40 (November 1966) published by DC Comics. Unfortunately, he is not on the cover of this issue. Peacemaker is in great physical shape. He has advanced military weapons
John Cena will play this character Peacemaker in Suicide Squad coming out in August 2, 2021. John is also set to reprise this character in a HBO Max spinoff.
Unfortunately there are hardly any copies of Fightin’ 5 40 available for sale due to age and condition in March 2019. However there are currently 6 copies for sale on ebay as of this writing. Fightin’ 5 40 CGC 6.5 sold for $650 on July 7.
