According to Deadline, Viola Davis in talks to star in Peacemaker spin-off for HBO Max. It was known for some time that in addition to Peacemaker Season 2, James Gunn was also developing another DC based HBO Max show. I guess this is it. As per the trade.
Deadline understands that HBO Max is developing a Peacemaker and Suicide Squad spinoff series featuring the supervillain with Davis in talks to star and exec produce.
Watchmen writer Christal Henry will write and exec produce the potential series, which comes from Warner Bros. TV
It comes after Deadline revealed that James Gunn, who will exec produce the project, was working on a second Suicide Squad spinoff series. He told us in January that it was “connected to this universe” but “won’t be as much a comedy as Peacemaker.”
Suicide Squad producer and Peacemaker exec producer Peter Safran will also exec produce.

Now the rumor mill, and general fan base don’t think this will be ‘Amanda Waller the series’. Just that the show will star Waller as the lead character. Some fans are still hoping for a Secret Six adaptation, but we will have to wait and see. One wonders just how much connection there will be between this show and Peacemaker Seasons 1-2? Gunn says it’s not as much of a comedy. However it’s all set in the same murky world Gunn has created in the DCEU. Frankly, that murky less morally strict corner of Gunn’s is the best thing currently in the DCEU, but that’s not the point.
Specifically I wonder if we will see the likes of Leota, Waller’s daughter show up? I’d be highly surprised if Leota (Danielle Brooks) was not in Peacemaker S2. Leota was one of the best characters on that show.
