“F*** Aquaman,” Says John Cena’s Peacemaker in NSFW Comic-Con Clip

Christopher Smith, aka John Cena, is now infamous as f** in a clip full of profanity from Peacemaker by HBO Max. The series is a spin-off from James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad where the Peacemaker turns on Task Force X before he is seen in a coma but alive during the post-credits scene. Peacemaker begins where Suicide Squad left us: with Christopher Smith, an overconfident douchebag who is recruited by Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller to save the “fu***ng world.”

In an online released clip during the San Diego Comic-Con Special, Peacemaker gets into a heated conversation with Janitor Jamil, played by Rizwan Manji, before firing a shot at Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, saying, “F**k Aquaman!”

You may watch the NSFW clip before Peacemaker premiers its trailer on HBO Max on 3rd December here.

“Truth is, I’m supposed to be in prison for superhero sh*t,” Peacemaker says from his hospital room after surviving a bullet fired by Bloodsport (Idris Elba) and being buried beneath the rubble of a destroyed Jotunheim in The Suicide Squad. Told he’s “kind of bulky to be a superhero,” Peacemaker insists he’s “f*ckin’ famous.”

“Not that famous,” scoffs Jamil. “Aquaman, he’s famous.” After hurling a curse towards the king of Atlantis, Peacemaker admits he was in prison for “integrity.”

“I made a vow to have peace,” the Peacemaker says, “no matter how many people I have to kill to get it.”

Peacemaker is a part sequel and part prequel to The Suicide Squad

Premiering on 13th January, the series serves as a part sequel and part prequel to The Suicide Squad, unmasking the weapons expert and born killer as Peacemaker makes a revelation, ”

“Through the story, you learn where Peacemaker came from,” Gunn previously told Variety about Peacemaker‘s place in the DC Extended Universe’s timeline. “There’s a moment in [The Suicide Squad] where Bloodsport talks about his father and what his father was like, and you cut to a shot of Peacemaker, and Peacemaker nods. That’s the seed of the entire Peacemaker series.”

Auggie Smith’s son (played by Robert Patrick), Christopher Smith is actually “not an evil person, he’s just a bad guy,” Gunn said. “He seems sort of irredeemable in the film. But I think that there’s more to him. We didn’t get a chance to know him [in The Suicide Squad] in the way we get to know some of the other characters. And so that’s what the whole show is about. I needed eight episodes to do it, at least.”

The series stars John Cena, Robert Patrick, Danielle Brooks, Jennifer Holland, Chukwudi Iwuji, Freddie Stroma, and Steve Agee. The series will premiere on January 13, 2022, only on HBO Max.
