John Cena Photobombs Peacemaker in Full Costume in Viral TikTok Video
Earlier this year, the live-action DC Universe received some fascinating additions with the help of The Suicide Squad that brought some lesser-known anti-heroes and villains to the big screen. Among them was Christopher Smith / Peacemaker (John Cena), who will launch his own HBO Max solo series early next year. Even before the trailers for the series were first released, fans were already enjoying Cena’s unique take on the character – as well as his propensity for wearing the Peacemaker costume in real life. A recent TikTok from user @webheadedhero shows this in a pretty amusing way, showing Cena crashing his TikTok at a convention while dressed in the Peacemaker costume.

The Peacemaker series stars Cena, Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo, Robert Patrick as Auggie Smith, Jennifer Holland as Emilia Harcourt, Steve Agee as John Economos, Freddie Stroma as Vigilante, Christopher Heyerdahl as Captain Locke, Chukwudi Iwuji as Clemson Murn, Lochlyn Munro as Larry Fitzgibbon, Annie Chang as Sophie Song, Elizabeth Faith Ludlow as Keeya and Rizwan Manji as Jamil.
“Peacemaker is an opportunity to examine current world issues through the lens of this superhero / villain / and the world’s greatest fool,” stated creator James Gunn when the series was first announced. “I’m excited to expand The Suicide Squad and bring this character from the DC movie universe into the full breadth of a series. And of course to be able to work with John, Peter and my friends at Warner Bros. again. “The icing on the cake.”
“I’ve already said it was a tremendous honor and an incredible opportunity to be part of The Suicide Squad and work with James on an amazing movie,” Cena repeated. “I’m incredibly excited to work with him again for Peacemaker. We can’t wait for the fans to see that.”
“This is a world, especially DC, that HBO would not normally have made,” said HBO boss Casey Bloys in a recent interview. “And when you have someone like James Gunn wanting to do that, this is a great way to take advantage of it. When you think of these shows, they all feel a little wider than HBO normally would.”
