John Cena’s superhero show is confirmed to be released outside the USA. Check out Peacemaker’s streaming date and OTT platform in India!
John Cena’s Peacemaker Release Date
‘Peacemaker’ release date in the USA is January 13, 2022. This is a spin-off show of 2021’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ movie.
John Cena will return as the titular superhero Christopher Smith/ Peacemaker, with many more known characters coming back as well. The show is set after the events of that movie.
One more amazing thing about the show is that it is created by James Gunn who also directed the previous movie. James Gunn is the same director who made Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 1 and 2 movies for Marvel in past.
But will this new DC show be released in India?
Peacemaker streaming date in India?
While it is not confirmed when the show will be streamed in India, there’s Good News! James Gunn has confirmed that he is working on releasing Peacemaker in India and UK.
He promised Indian fans that he is trying his best but it might be released later than its original premiere date. Here is his official Tweet:
Peacemaker is coming on HBO MAX in the USA which is not available in most countries of the world including India. Indian fans are also asking where they can watch it? So, there must be some other popular Indian streaming platform where the series will stream.
Peacemaker’s OTT platform in India
The streaming platform for Peacemaker is still not declared in India. But as mentioned before, it will arrive soon in the country.
The most probable OTT platform for Peacemaker will be ‘Amazon Prime Video’ in India. This is because most Warner Bros shows are recently released on that, including the Harry Potter’s 20th Anniversary special. The second likely streaming service is Disney+ Hotstar.
About the Show
Peacemaker will be the first-ever DCEU (DC Extended Universe) series. It will serve as an origin story of the superhero as well as continue from the post-credit scene of The Suicide Squad. I explained that scene in Hindi for fans to understand:
The show cast includes John Cena, Steve Agee and Jennifer Holland from the previous movie. It will also introduce Danielle Brooks, Robert Patrick and Freddie Stroma in this DC universe.
Freddie is playing a new superhero ‘Vigilante’, which looks like an important role. Robert is playing Cena’s father in the story and might be the main antagonist.
Showrunner James Gunn wrote all the eight episodes and also directed five of them himself. Gunn planned this series between DC’ ‘The Suicide Squad’ and Marvel’s ‘Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3’.
He looks quite committed to the storyline he is building in DC’s world. Gunn has also teased more plans (even a Peacemaker season 02) in future.
Also, note that you can’t binge all of them from day one. The first 3 episodes will be out on 13 January and then, one episode will be released every week. The season finale will be on February 17.
The critics’ reviews are also positive with many liking the R-rated action and comedy. I loved The Suicide Squad when it was released in Indian theatres, so, I am also looking forward to this spin-off.
The official synopsis of the series is: “PEACEMAKER explores the continuing story of the character that John Cena reprises in the aftermath of executive producer James 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!.”
If this series gets a great response overall, it will hopefully open gates for more DC characters getting their own stories to be told via web series online.
So now you know about the Peacemaker India release and OTT platform possible in India where it will be streamed. Let’s see how the series works out!
