Seen baffled by the absurdity of Peacemaker’s look are John Economos (Steve Agee) and Emilia Harcourt (Jennifer Holland) — Amanda Waller’s (Viola Davis) staff that were last seen double-crossing their employer and now look to be suffering the consequences. As punishment, they’re now forced to work alongside the titular hero who arrives in full costume with his pet eagle, Eagley, during their secret meeting, at a diner. In the ranking of famous DC pet sidekicks, it’s certainly not the best moniker for such a noble creature, but here we are.
Caked in James Gunn’s top-tier sense of humor, this tease is more than enough to get us excited for what’s in store for the eight-part series headed our way on HBO Max. Add in talent like Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo and Chukwudi Iwuji as Clemson Murn (also seen present at this awkward restaurant trip), and you’ve got another sure-fire hit from one of DC’s most lethal and laughably ignorant assassins. See how they all handle things when “Peacemaker” arrives on HBO Max in January 2022.
