The recently launched trailer of Peacemaker hasn’t echoed much about the Butterflies as of now. However, whatever has been highlighted, they all were quite intriguing to discover for any DC fan.

With that being said, it looks like that the Butterflies will be serving as adversaries to Peacemaker. However, there remains no doubt that the superhero might undergo a battle with at least one of the formidable foes. In fact, the Peacemaker’s trailer also included a scene where the Judomaster was squaring off with Christopher Smith.

James Gunn’s Peacemaker will start premiering on HBO Max from January 13, 2022.
