While Netflix is cramming out over appeasement, one of their competitors appears to be doing just fine. HBO Max has been showcasing series and spin-offs around as Oprah distributed automobiles. Several of their Batman-related shows are being milked once more: It''s probable that a second show will be sent from the DCEU''s Suicide Squad.
The streamer has given an as-yet-untitled documentary about Amanda Waller, the semi-villainous government official played by Viola Davis. Introduced in the first Suicide Squad (the one without the definitive article in the title), Waller is perhaps more dastardly than the actual villains under her sway, made even more fearful by the Oscar-winning actress. (And remember that she spent six seasons on How to Get Away with Murder.)
Amanda Waller''s show will feature him in Peacemaker, with John Cenas being also a semi-villain, who is introduced in The Suicide Squad (not to be confused with the one without the definitive article in the title). That show, like the movie, proved to be a big streaming hit and a magnet for social media love. That said, James Gunn, who will executive produce the show, said it won''t be as much a comedy as Peacemaker, so be wary.
