Before James Gunn reintroduced himself to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he was still having fun in the Warner Bros. playground. It all began with Last Years The Suicide Squad, which then paved the way for the directors major sequel, Peacemaker.
The HBO Max series saw John Cenas' titular character join forces with Argus members in order to halt a terrifying alien invasion. The program was just as crazy as one might have imagined. Its freshman run was so successful that it was almost wished it would continue.
The first batch of episodes was previously confirmed to take place in the DCEU continuity, right after the events of the premiere DC film Cenas. However, could this change with the upcoming new season?
With time-traveling shenanigans, next years The Flash is expected to give Warner Bros. continuity a fresh start. In fact, rumors say the Snyderverse could be completely erased.
Gunn has provided the answer, and it appears to be as it always has been: part of the main DCEU timeline.
What is the DCEU Status of Peacemaker Season 2?
Some significant changes are coming to the DCEU timeline as Ezra Miller's The Flash is on the way. While its not known when James Gunn's Peacemaker will air, the odds are that it will air after the Scarlet Speedsters solo release.
What place would the Peacemakers show in Season 2's canonheading be considered on its own? Is it part of the Snyderverse or part of the DCEUs' new timeline?
Gunn explained on Twitter that Peacemaker will continue to be the DCEU.
He does not go much further, but this is likely to mean that whatever the larger DCEU's continuity becomes, Peacemaker will be a part of it.
The Peacemaker will follow the DCEU wherever it goes.
The Snyderverse, or the current DCEU continuity, has gone through a lot of turmoil, from Zack Snyder's bizarre Justice League quips to Ezra Millers' wacky dramas, and even the complete avoidance of Henry Cavils' Supermana change.
Due to Warner Bros.' delaying filming for future projects, the Flash will give the cinematic universe a much-needed makeover.
If however, the timeline change does occur, fans will be asking themselves the same question about almost every DCEU project that ever existed. Did everything happen in a sense? Or are whole movies and events simply no longer canon?
There are rumors that there may be a completely different Justice League roster. Will the original group ever form again?
So many questions that fans will almost certainly have to wait a long time before they receive any concrete answers.
The Flash will be released on June 23, 2023, while the second season of Peacemakers is planned on HBO Max at some point next year.
