Whether it be on Silther Marvel Studios Guardians of the Galaxy The Suicide Squad or Peacemaker Gunn tends to create work environments that spawn long lasting personal and professional relationships something that is also present in his outrageous hilarious juke box worthy and heartfelt work. Peacemaker released its season 1 finale Its Cow or Never on February 17 and will return to the streamer eventually after it became a hit during its initial run. Not only does A.R.G.U.S. succeed in its mission but Peacemaker makes the inverse of his The Suicide Squad decision choosing his friends over an authoritative version of peace.
Cena Holland and the rest of the cast helped to make Peacemaker a hit with critics and audiences alike. The series is currently the DCEUs best reviewed project since its conception in 2013 with a 94 persent critics score on Rotten Tomatoes. Ahead of the season 1 finale it was confirmed Peacemaker season 2 had been renewed. Following his work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Gunn will presumably return to work within the DCEU on Peacemaker season 2 and potentially other projects in the cinematic universe which gives fans and Cena more than enough reason to smile.
