“Day 1 S2,” Gunn posted on Threads along with a photo of Peacemaker’s helmet.

A fan asked how he could film Peacemaker if Superman was also filming at the same time.

“It’s a Saturday. Pre-shoot,” Gunn replied.

Gunn also clarified that for Peacemaker Season 2, he would “be directing some of the episodes” like in Saturday’s shoot, “But there are three other great directors joining me for the season.”

Max ordered a second season of Peacemaker ahead of its first season finale following a strong debut on the streaming platform. The series follows the escapades of Peacemaker, a role that Cena originated on Gunn’s 2021 film The Suicide Squad. Peacemaker is a vainglorious man who believes in peace at any cost, no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.

The show’s cast includes Danielle Brooks, Jennifer Holland, Freddie Stroma, Chukwudi Iwuji, Steve Agee, and Robert Patrick.

Gunn wrote all eight episodes of Peacemaker Season 1 and directed five, including the first one. Gunn, Peter Safran and Matt Miller serve as executive producers on the series, with Cena as co-executive producer and Stacy Littlejohn as consulting producer. Based on characters from DC, Peacemaker is produced by Gunn’s Troll Court Entertainment and The Safran Company in association with Warner Bros. Television.
