We’re thrilled to announce that our Freddie Stroma will be joining the DCEU as the iconic anti-hero Vigilante in HBO Max’s Peacemaker series, directed by James Gunn.

Peacemaker was announced in 2020, with The Suicide Squad director James Gunn writing all episodes and directing. The show will explore the origins of the Peacemaker character that John Cena plays in the upcoming 2021 movie. Freddie will play Vigilante, otherwise known as Adrian Chase, a hand-to-hand combatant, a brilliant marksman and a master of the lariat.

Gunn, the Suicide Squad producer Peter Safran and Matt Miller serve as executive producers of the series, with Cena as co-executive producer. Peacemaker will be produced by Troll Court Entertainment and The Safran Company in association with Warner Bros. Television.

The series, which is expected to air in early 2022, will extend the world that Gunn is creating for the feature film, which is scheduled to be released in theatres by Warner Bros. Pictures on August 6, 2021.
