The Suicide Squad from filmmaker James Gunn is set to arrive next summer, which reinvents the franchise with a new brand of style and humor. And Warner Bros. must be very happy with what they've seen from the early cuts, as they just announced HBO Max will be airing a spinoff.

Starring John Cena, who plays a major role in the upcoming film alongside Margot Robbie and Idris Elba, Peacemaker focuses on the titular anti-hero famously committed to peace at any cost. And the good news doesn't stop there, as Gunn will not only produce the series but write and direct some of the episodes. Due out Aug. 2021.
