James Gunn managed to pull off the seemingly impossible in Peacemaker the director managed to get most of the Justice League together on screen for a cameo. Speaking with Total Film about the moment the filmmaker reveals that theres a whole lot more of where that came from especially when it comes to the humorous exchange between Ezra Millers Flash and Jason Momoas Aquaman.I have tons of stuff I didnt use Gunn says. Ezra went on and Im not kidding for 16 minutes about Aquaman having sex with fish. It was really funny.
Towards the finale moments of episode 8 John Cenas Peacemaker saves the day only for Superman the Flash Aquaman and Wonder Woman to show up late. However Miller and Momoa were the only ones on set to reprise their roles as the others were silhouettes. The surprise cameo was well received with many calling it a perfect ending to the season.It was done through pure force of will on my part of really pushing it to happen Gunn explains. I think everybody read it in the script agreed to it and then it became a thing and they realized what a big fucking deal it was.
Justice League members Batman and Cyborg are noticeably absent from the cameo but Gunn promises we can expect more cameos in season 2.I think were going to see more connections in some other stuff as we move forward with Peacemaker and other shows at HBO Max. So those cameos will keep coming Gunn says. I dont know if the Justice League is going to show up in every season of Peacemaker that might be a one time thing. Well see!Gunn spoke to Total Film as Peacemaker has finally arrived on UK screens and is available on the streaming service NOW. Peacemaker has been greenlit for a second season while we wait check out how to watch DC movies in order to get up to speed on the DCEU.
