Contains spoilers for “The Suicide Squad”
It’s hard to pick out a single standout performance from James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad.” Each character brings something unique to the table, and they’re all given a moment to shine. However, given that one of these supervillains received an order for an HBO Max spinoff series before the movie even came out, it’s clear John Cena’s Peacemaker resonated for some people in powerful places.
Peacemaker essentially functions as an even more evil version of Bloodsport (Idris Elba). The two constantly go at it throughout the film, as they have similar power sets and backgrounds, so each one wants to prove they’re the superior marksman. Cena clearly has a blast in the part, which is likely why he was okay committing to the character for even longer with a show on the way.
He has numerous great lines throughout “The Suicide Squad,” with the most iconic arguably being, “I cherish peace with all of my heart. I don’t care how many men, women, and children I kill to get it.” However, there’s a decidedly different line of his that has Redditors doing a second look.
