With the mastery of the genre of superheroes, James Gunn today rules both DC and Marvel. Gunn is the executive producer, director, and writer of John Cena’s Peacemaker on HBO Max, a spin-off from The Suicide Squad. At the same time, he is alos filming the final third part of the Guardian of the Galaxy at Atlanta.

It isn’t apparent what transpires through Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3, but Gunn did advise to bring in some tissues as always. Now, DC just concluded their first sub-franchise TV series, Peacemaker, and it brings in a lot of surprises that many didn’t figure out until the end.

Gunn had been hinting at a big surprise for Peacemaker that would surprise fans in the run-up to its big finale. So now, the movie director has talked about that big revelation and a connection to Marvel that you didn’t know about before.

People who work on Peacemaker talked with Variety about the big cameos in the show’s Season 1 finale. Executive producer, writer, and director James Gunn talked about them.

Finally, John Cena’s character goes all-out to take down the Butterflies’ cow, but his team is way too small. Danielle Brooks’ Leota Adebayo calls her mother, Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller, and asks for help from the Justice League. The ARGUS leader doesn’t seem to be on board with the idea.

It was a success when the Butterflies were defeated and their cow was killed. The four members of the Justice League game. They were Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Flash. Atlantean King says he doesn’t like the rumor that Aquaman is in love with fish. Peacemaker tells Aquaman to go back and make love to fish. It turns out that the rumor isn’t true.

Adebayo and Peacemaker together took out the butterflies and the cow was killed with the Human Torpedo power. At the end of the battle, Peacemaker carries an Injured Harcourt with Economos out of the area. It when the Justice League arrives. They were Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Flash. The Atlantean King says he doesn’t like the rumor that Aquaman is in love with fish. Peacemaker tells Aquaman to go back and f*@k fish. It turns out that the rumor isn’t true.

We talked to Momoa about coming back as Aquaman before we started filming the HBO Max series; Gunn said in the interview, and they agreed to do it. The director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 also said that Momoa just laughed at the jokes Peacemaker made about his character. He said the actor was pretty much on board from the very start.

Marvel And DC Works Together For Gunn

As for Ezra, Gunn said that Marvel Studios helped them film the Flash scene while they were filming for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Further, Gunn said that Marvel owed DC, because the Peacemaker crew filmed a screen test for Chukwudi Iwuji‘s role in Vol. 3.

A good working relationship between Marvel Studios and DC is shown by James Gunn. This connection could have been made by Gunn’s involvement, but it’s still important that the studios worked together, especially for a big moment in the Peacemaker finale.

Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will have Chukwudi Iwuji, who is the star of Peacemaker. This is another important connection between the two projects. Gunn said that Marvel owes DC for shooting the actor’s screen test, which might seem simple at first. But it shows that studios can help each other out.

Where The Other JL Characters?

Seeing the Justice League in Peacemaker is a big moment, and it shows how the team is doing in the DCEU , too. The episode shows that the team is on the job, but Batman and Cyborg aren’t there.

So far, projects like Batgirl seem to show that Batman is Michael Keaton’s new protector in Gotham City. It’s possible the Dark Knight and Cyborg could show up in future projects like The Flash to explain why they didn’t. It’s not clear whether Peacemaker is set before or after The Flash, which means that there’s a chance that Flashpoint-related consequences haven’t happened yet, but it’s possible.

In this case, it’s possible that Batman is working in Gotham while Cyborg is working on something outside Gotham. This would explain why they aren’t together. Henry Cavill isn’t sure if he’ll be playing Superman, and after Wonder Woman 1984, Gadot took a break. Momoa, on the other hand, was filming his own movie for Warner Bros. while Peacemaker was being made.

For both Marvel and DC, this should be a good thing because it shows that they will work together in the future.

It’s now possible to watch all the episodes of Peacemaker Season 1 on HBO Max for US audiences. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to open in theaters on May 5, 2023.
