Peacemaker is an anti-hero who strives for peace, no matter the cost. He is a self-righteous psychopath who is also willing to kill people for peace. The show will explore the origins of the anti-hero and how he became a ruthless killer.

It will release on the 13th of January, 2022, as one of the first projects for DC on a long list of releases. DC officially dropped the poster of the upcoming series. The show will consist of eight episodes which James Gunn has written.

HBO Max released more posters that displayed Peacemaker’s potential enemies, friends, and trusty Eagle friend, Eagly.

Besides John Cena, the series will feature Steve Agee, Danielle Brooks, Robert Patrick, Jennifer Holland, and Freddie Stroma. Agee and Holland’s characters were also seen in The Suicide Squad film.

It looks like Peacemaker is creating his very own stable to fend off his enemies. Maybe John Cena could bring this stable to WWE one day.

John Cena responds to mean tweets about him

Jimmy Kimmel does a segment on his show called “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets.” Different stars read mean tweets about themselves and react to those.

The latest episode of the segment recently dropped, which features Tom Holland, Kevin HART, John Cena, Timothee Chalamet, and more.

The mean tweet to Cena said, “F–k off @JohnCena, you talentless b*ll s*ck.”

The 16-time world champion had a very witty response to the insult. He said, “I take offense to this. Only because a b*lls*ck holds a ton of talent. It has half of the DNA to create human life and that’s a pretty fascinating thing.”

While John Cena is having a fun run being an actor, the fans at WWE are calling him back home. His last appearance was at SummerSlam 2021, in which Roman Reigns defeated him.
