After his star making debut at Comic-Con Special Edition last week, Peacemaker has brought us a new full trailer for his upcoming series (aptly named Peacemaker) coming to HBO Max January 13! The trailer is full of mayhem and explosions, and a little less humor than the previous teaser shown at DC FanDome, but still some good belly laughs courtesy of Freddie Stroma’s Vigilante. Check it out here now:
Loving the crazy ‘80s hair-metal soundtrack as well! Like Tarantino, Gunn absolutely knows how to blend music and visuals beautifully. The one thing that’s a bit weird about the premise of this show in general is that it seems to be humanizing a character that was an absolute psychotic bastard in the original film. I’d love to see how Gunn manages to pull that off (and I firmly believe he can since he’s so good with character). This trailer definitely gives you a sense that his time in Corto Maltese with The Suicide Squad may have softened him up a little.
We’ll see on January 13 when Peacemaker debuts on HBO Max.
Additionally DC and HBO Max have dropped a new poster for the series which you can view here:
