Peacemaker was being filmed in Cloverdale March 17 – 23.

The new series is a Suicide Squad spin-off with John Cena starring as Peacemaker, “a ruthless killer who believes in achieving peace at any cost.”

The James Gunn directed series is rumoured to explore the origins of Peacemaker.

On March 10, a stuntman repeatedly jumped off the Dann’s Electronics building in Cloverdale to rehearse a jump scene that was finally filmed March 19.

After only three bounds on the 19th, the unknown stuntman gave way to Cena, who completed the scene by walking off from the leaper’s landing spot.

Several trees were put up in the parking lot on 56A Avenue as a backdrop and retro-style parking lot lights were added at the edges of the blacktop.

Later, Cena’s Peacemaker character was attacked from the top of a large moving truck by a jumping assailant. The scene took repeated takes and ran into the evening.

The eight-episode production is set to drop on HBO Max in January, 2022.

The film also stars Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo.

And here is Cena having some fun in his Peacemaker costume on Jimmy Fallon.
