While Peacemaker screams old, repressive values, the HBO Max series has shaped the John Cena character to be more than what you might think his character is. Despite having a father like Peacemaker does, the character was revealed to be bisexual in last week’s episode. According to director James Gunn, it was Cena who decided on Chris Smith’s sexuality:
“Peacemaker is an interesting character because he’s so f*****-up in so many ways, and then in other ways, he is kind of weirdly forward-thinking,” Gunn explained. “John does improv all the time, and he just turned Christopher Smith into this hyper-sexualized dude that is open to anything sexually. I was surprised by that. But I thought, ‘I guess it makes sense that this guy isn’t one-dimensional.'”
“We see in the show that he doesn’t have any issues with sexuality. As long as you’re not f****** animals — that he’s not into. But besides that, he’s pretty open. And yet other things he’s completely close-minded on.”
The season finale just premiered on HBO Max and it’s been confirmed that Peacemaker will return for a season two! Keep an eye out for our review of the first season.
