HBO Max has released the fantastic Peacemaker opening credits sequence! You can watch the opening using the player below.
Set to the song “Do Ya Wanna Taste It” by Wig Wam, the sequence is directed by series writer and director James Gunn and choreographed by Charissa-Lee Barton.
The Peacemaker opening credits sequence features stars John Cena, Danielle Brooks, Freddie Stroma, Jennifer Holland, Chukwudi Iwuji, Steve Agee, Robert Patrick, Annie Chang, Lochlyn Munro, Nhut Le, Christopher Heyerdahl, Mel Tuck, Rizwan Manji, Elizabeth Faith Ludlow and Dee Bradley Baker (the voice of Eagly).
Peacemaker explores the continuing story of the character that John Cena reprises in the aftermath of Gunn’s 2021 film The Suicide Squad – a compellingly vainglorious man who believes in peace at any cost, no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.
The first three episodes of the DC spin-off series premiered Thursday, January 13. One episode will launch weekly thereafter through February 17.
Gunn wrote all eight episodes of Peacemaker and directed five, including the first. Gunn, Peter Safran and Matt Miller serve as executive producers on the series, with Cena as co-executive producer.
Based on characters from DC, Peacemaker is produced by Gunn’s Troll Court Entertainment and The Safran Company in association with Warner Bros. Television.
“Peacemaker is an opportunity to delve into current world issues through the lens of this superhero/supervillain/and world’s biggest douchebag,” said James Gunn previously.
He added: “I’m excited to expand The Suicide Squad and bring this character from the DC film universe to the full breadth of a series. And of course, to be able to work again with John, Peter, and my friends at Warner Bros. is the icing on the cake.”
“James Gunn has the unique ability to create an expansive universe while also bringing to life the soul and wit of each character. We look forward to a deep dive into the world of Peacemaker,” said Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer for HBO and HBO Max.
“I have said before that it has been a tremendous honor and an incredible opportunity to be part of The Suicide Squad and to work with James on what is going to be a fantastic movie,” added Cena.
“I am unbelievably excited to have the chance to team up with him again for Peacemaker. We can’t wait for fans to see this.”
