We haven't even seen John Cena playing Peacemaker on the big screen yet and the character already has his own spin-off.
'Peacemaker' is a new series coming to HBO Max.
Per the official release, Cena's character is "a man who believes in peace at any cost — no matter how many people he has to kill to get it."
The wrestler-turned-actor tweeted: "Working alongside @JamesGunn on #SuicideSquad was an absolute masterclass in how to best bring beloved characters to life in a new and fun way. I cannot wait for the #DCUniverse to experience more of absurdity that is the Peacemaker..."

The character is one of many who will star in 'Suicide Squad' follow-up 'The Suicide Squad' directed by James Gunn.
Gunn will also be penning the new straight-to-series order. He's directing a number of its eight episodes too.
The writer-director said:
"'Peacemaker' is an opportunity to delve into current world issues through the lens of this superhero/supervillain/and world’s biggest douchebag.
"I’m excited to expand 'The Suicide Squad' and bring this character from the DC film universe to the full breadth of a series.
"And of course, to be able to work again with John, Peter, and my friends at Warner Bros. is the icing on the cake."
Other DC projects HBO Max has in the works includes the Zack Snyder cut of 'Justice League'; and a 'Year One' prequel to the upcoming Robert Pattinson starrer 'The Batman'.
Production on 'Peacemaker' will commence early next year while 'The Suicide Squad' hits cinemas on August 6, 2021.
