The cast & crew of the new DC Comics spin-off series "Peacemaker" (filming under the working title of "The Scriptures") spent the last couple of days filming scenes at a quiet residential street in Port Moody, about 1/2 hour outside of Vancouver. I cant be entirely sure, but I THINK this is the first ever set I have worked in Port Moody.
The series, based on the character Peacemaker, who will be featured in the upcoming Suicide Squad 2 movie (directed by James Gunn), was given a series order by HBO Max several months before the film even drops.
With James Gunn also directing the series, and WWE superstar John Cena attached as the star, there is hope this less PC style comic based show will be a hit for HBO Max in a way similar to how The Boys has been a shining example for Amazon.
On this day, John was on set shooting a scene as a civilian, and not in his Peacemaker attire. Unsure if they will be giving him the same name he has in the comics of Christopher Smith. He was shooting a scene where he walks up to a house, and then gets in an argument with a neighbour, before going inside the hose where Auggie Smith, played by Robert Patrick lives. From where I was, about 1/2 a block away I could only hear what Cena was saying, and it was not pleasant. They did a few variations of the dialogue, with Cenas character calling him an "old F***" at the end of it.
Also on set, was the director of course, James Gunn, who I saw a couple times conversing with John between takes. There was also a flag pole with a U.S. flag on it upside down. When I first got there, they had a cab from the fictional area of Charlton County, Washington (a nod to the original owners of the Peacemaker comics, Charlton Comics which DC bought in the 1980s... funny enough there is a Charlton County, but it is in Georgia). Also at the house was the car Peacemaker will have, which was covered in a U.S. flag design. From where I was, I could only see the back of it, with its "PSS MKR" license plate. But I did see a photo some person in the neighborhood had of the side of it with the re& white stripe design going across the car to the front hood, where a blue hood was covered in white stars, similar to the American flag.
During his breaks, John walked around a lot, and constantly waved & gave the peace sign to the 2 photographers that were there (myself & a pap). Despite 2 crew members who were under the delusion they were going to stop us, (and under the delusion that he didnt want to be photographed, despite the multiple times he waved & gave peace signs.) we did of course get some photos. It was not a fun experience for them as shown below.
UPDATE - I have 1 more Peacemaker set from later in the season, HERE
Peacemaker will also star Danielle Brooks, Jennifer Holland, Steven Agee, Freddie Stroma, Annie Chang, and Chukwudi Iwuji
PEACEMAKER will air on HBO Max January 13, 2022.
When I get more posts on it, they will be in this blog section. So check back occasionally for any further updates.
