James Gunn talked a bit about what we can expect from music in the upcoming Peacemaker series with John Cena.
The music of James Gunn’s films is always memorable, and The suicide squad was no exception. We recently received the first images of Gunn’s upcoming project which will focus on John Cena. Peacemaker, who could have featured one of the songs that will be featured in the series.
Speaking to the Television Critics Association press tour panel, Gunn said that the soundtrack of Peacemaker was the one who turned him on as much as the first one guardians of the galaxy movie, and offered a taste of the kind of music the HBO Max series will feature:
“It’s really hair metal… Lots of ’80s hair metal, but it’s also a lot of modern sleaze rock and hair metal that comes from Europe – a lot of really good bands that people don’t know. I love that kind of thing but there is also a lot of really bad hair metal. So it was fun to find the really good things to inject flavor into the series, which we keep throughout the first season. “
In the first images of PeacemakerJohn Cena is also seen donning the tights again, and the actor joked about Gunn’s obsession:
“As far as my dancing goes, I’ve learned two things about James Gunn through our relationship: first, he’s obsessed with my pantyhose. And second, he always wants me to dance, so you can watch that on HBO Max, and there will more than likely be pantyhose and dancing in store.
John Cena’s Peacekeeper can currently be seen in The suicide squad. Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Welcome to Hell – aka Belle Reve, the highest fatality prison in the United States of America. Where the worst supervillains are kept and where they will do anything to get out – even join the super secret and super shady Force X task. Today’s mission? Assemble a collection of drawbacks including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin, and everyone’s favorite psychopath, Harley Quinn. Then, heavily arm them and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Traversing a swarming jungle of militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the squad is on a search and destroy mission, with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave… and government technicians. ‘Amanda Waller in their ears, tracking their every move. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone makes any bets, the smart money is against them, all of them.
