Superhero programs are not uncommon these days. Marvel has been running shows for quite some time with the likes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter in the Netflix world, which also includes Daredevil and Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and The Punisher , among others. In 2020, the MCU officially expanded to Disney+, bringing WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, What If…? , and Hawkeye all to TV. HBO Max got into the game too, bringing new seasons of shows like Doom Patrol and Titans. All of that, and yet…none of them are anything like Peacemaker, the spin-off of The Suicide Squad that’s as vulgar and out there as anything on this side of The Boys—only Peacemaker actually holds the DC branding.
And if they released it right now on purpose–and let’s be real, they probably did–it’s a pretty genius move. No Marvel series is currently on Disney+ (the next one will be Moon Knight or Ms. Marvel in March or February), so Peacemaker has the prestige streaming superhero landscape. It’s also a hard-core R-rated vulgar show, jam-packed full of graphic violence and sex scenes. This is the kind of superhero show Kevin Feige and co. have never done (at least not until Deadpool finds his way back into that world).
People looking for just a taste of Peacemaker will get a big one–the show dropped its first three of a planned eight episode season all at once. We are not sure if this will be a limited series or if James Gunn, the writer/director, plans to tell more stories in the future. But what we know for certain is that we’ve got eight full episodes of this DC-set story–and it takes its one-of-a-kind star, and its one-of-a-kind creator, to tell a really one-of-a-kind story.
Here’s when each episode of Peacemaker will come out, and more release details.
