Everyone’s favorite flora colossus is back in a new series of shorts hitting Disney+ later this summer!
In 2014, the world was introduced to the Guardians of the Galaxy! And out of a whole team of amazing breakthrough characters, the biggest breakout was the gentle and hilarious Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel). Sadly, that iteration of Groot met his end at the conclusion of the first film, but thankfully, a new Groot was spawned, and the world met Baby Groot!
Hey nerds! Just when you thought we were done with Peacemaker… surprise! We have one more interview to share with you all. Hopefully, everyone has seen the first three episodes that premiered on Thursday. If not, you need to get on that immediately so you can check out Alison Araya’s scene stealing performance in Episode 2.
Genius. Gonzo. Hilarious. Surreal. All four adjectives typically go hand-in-hand when speaking about the work of Peacemaker and The Suicide Squad mastermind, James Gunn. Indeed, the master filmmaker has been putting his unique, identifiable stamp on every project he’s shepherded since the first film he wrote — 1997’s Tromeo and Juliet. And from there, Gunn’s star has only grown brighter, serving as a testament to how sometimes, Hollywood gets it right, and rightfully rewards the talented.
I said it in my review already. Peacemaker has THE MOST GLORIOUS opening credits sequence ever in the history of television! That’s not an exaggeration! Now HBO Max has officially released the sequence in full, in all of its amazingness for you and everyone to now create TikTok homages to! But enough talk! Shut up and dance!
Today is the day! DC’s Peacemaker is finally here, streaming now on HBO Max! All this week we’ve had the pleasure of bringing you some ridiculously fun interviews with the stars and producers of of the series. But today, in celebration of Peacemaker Premiere Day, we are proud to present to you our interview with Peacemaker and Harcourt themselves: John Cena and Jennifer Holland!
It’s Day 3 of our Countdown to HBO Max’s Peacemaker! So far this week we’ve had the opportunity to share interviews with stars Chukwudi Iwuji, Freddie Stroma, and executive producer Matt Miller. And today we are unveiling our interview with two of the best character actors out there, and one stellar producer: Robert Patrick, Steve Agee, and Peter Safran!
We’re continuing on with our countdown to the premiere of HBO Max’s Peacemaker here at The Nerds of Color! And for Day 2, we have a real doozy! If you all thought John Cena was nuts as the uber-violent, yet utterly hilarious Christopher Smith (aka Peacemaker), wait until you get a load of the completely insane and uproariously funny Adrian Chase (aka Vigilante) played by the amazing scene stealer, Freddie Stroma!
It’s day one of our countdown to the premiere of DC’s Peacemaker on HBO Max! And today we’re debuting the first interview in our upcoming series of features celebrating the return of John Cena’s outlandish vigilante from The Suicide Squad! We were lucky enough to get a personal 1:1 with one of the series’ breakout stars, Chukwudi Iwuji!
Hey Nerds! Mike here! As many of you who’ve read my reviews for Peacemaker and The Suicide Squad know, I’m something of a sucker for James Gunn’s bizarre band of DC misfits. And this week, you’ll get to enjoy the insanity yourself, as Gunn and John Cena unleash the further adventures of Christopher Smith (aka Peacemaker), when Peacemaker officially debuts on HBO Max, this Thursday, January 13!
Without hesitation, I can declare proudly that James Gunn’s gonzo comic book masterpiece, The Suicide Squad was easily one of my top five films of 2021. In addition to a fun story, gorgeously shot visuals, and hilariously raunchy script, we fell in love with the likes of fellow misfits Ratcatcher II, Polka Dot Man, and King Shark.
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:
This past weekend marked a nice toe-dip return to form for San Diego, which saw a scaled down version of Comic-Con International in the city, called Comic-Con Special Edition. While the nice-and-easy mini-convention was light on major studio presences, the one property that dared to make an appearance was James Gunn’s Peacemaker!
When it comes to MCU news, I tend to air on the side of caution. Given we aren’t a click bait publication, we don’t (and shouldn’t) report on anything that’s just rumored or speculative without basis or educated reason for speculation (like an officially released trailer or poster). But with that being said, given this morning’s tweets from both director James Gunn and Marvel Studios, we can officially report that production is finally underway on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3!
The last time we saw him, he was recovering in a hospital bed after being shot by a smaller bullet by Bloodsport. And now he has his own HBO Max series! That’s right! Christopher Smith, aka Peacemaker, is back in the brand new series, Peacemaker!
For those out there, like myself, who can’t get enough of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, any semblance or scrap of a sequel is, frankly, something to foam at the mouth for. And though Peacemaker proved to be the sequel’s true villain, there’s something about John Cena’s oblivious earnestness and hilarious charisma that does make me curious to see where the upcoming Peacemaker series is going to go. We know after the events of the film, that ARGUS desk-jockeys John Economos (Steve Agee) and Emilia Harcourt (Jennifer Holland) were sent to take back a very-much-alive Christopher Smith. But where things go from there remains a real mystery.
Keith rejoins Britney and Dominicto share final thoughts on The Suicide Squad, revisit Cathy Yan’s contributions to the DC canon, break down the whole Shang-Chi experiment “controversy,” and review the first episode of Disney+’s What If.
I don’t typically like to compare movies. Sure, most films of recent are either a reboot, sequel or adaptation. At the very least, they take reference from kind of source material. But some movies are more comparable than others, like Suicide Squad (2016) and The Suicide Squad (2021). However, aside from confusingly similar titles, a couple of returning players, and a similar world-saving plot, these two movies have almost nothing in common.
The Suicide Squad is my favorite movie of the year so far. James Gunn’s tribute to the pulpy demented works of John Ostrander’s DC run in the ’80s is bloody, bold, and brilliantly surreal. And none of it would be possible if it wasn’t for a stolen Style Watch!
