PEACEMAKER: Jennifer Holland Confirms She's Part Of The DCU With Season 2 Behind The Scenes Photo

The Suicide Squad star Jennifer Holland has confirmed she's returning for Peacemaker season 2, making her the latest DCEU star to make the leap to the new DCU. We may also have a new logo for the show!

While Jennifer Holland has hinted at her planned DCU debut in a few social media posts, the actress and wife of DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn has now confirmed she's begun work on Peacemaker season 2. 

Holland made her DCEU debut as Emilia Harcourt in The Suicide Squad and later reprised the role in Peacemaker, Black Adam, and Shazam! Fury of the Gods. She quickly became a fan-favourite, stealing the show alongside John Cena in his anti-hero's spin-off TV series. 

This makes Holland one of only a handful of DCEU actors to make the leap from that world to the DCU. Other Team Peacemaker members are expected to join her, including Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo, Freddie Stroma as Vigilante, and Steve Agee as John Economos.

So far, several actors Gunn previously worked with and Blue Beetle star Xolo Maridueña are the only ones not to be axed for DC Studios' reboot.

We're also pretty sure that's a new Peacemaker logo shared by Holland in the Instagram post below.

"I was excited to explore her in every way," the actress previously said of her role in the Max series. "James had a hard time fitting in the stories he wanted to for [The Suicide Squad] with the main cast because of how big the cast was, so there was just a blank page to go with Harcourt. The things about her that I loved so much are the things that make her incredibly complicated and flawed."

"She’s a well-rounded version of this tough-girl character that you might see in a lot of projects. James wrote a fleshed-out woman who is strong, tough, and cold—and has all kinds of issues that she’s working through."

"In addition to that, I can’t even tell you how excited I was to do all of the physicality of the role. I’ve always dreamt of getting to play a character that I would need to meld the physicality and the athleticism of myself with the acting that I love, and this role gave me the opportunity to do that," Holland concluded.

Peacemaker season 2 will also star Frank Grillo as Rick Flag Sr., Sol Rodríguez as Sasha Bordeaux, Tim Meadows as Langston Fleury, and David Denman in a mystery role. There's no word on a premiere date but production has been ongoing for a while now with Gunn directing episodes while shooting Superman.

Check out Holland's post below.

it's so funny to me that progressives and conservatives, like the one thing that brings them together is nepotism.

@SATW42 - nepotism only becomes bad when the project suffers because of it. Like The Godfather Part 3.

Cool, i was lowkey afraid that Gunn was gonna use the opportunity to double dip her and make her play a bigger character in his DCU.

@Doomsday8888 - double dipping her would be a poor choice. If you have her keep her to yourself.

I mean , not surprising but welcomed nonetheless for me since I liked her character in Peacemaker especially..

Her being this tough & cold character initially who warms up to an extent to her teammates and Chris specifically was well done and I am interested to see how that will continue.

I can see us delving into her backstory with her dad and childhood that she briefly touched on in S1.

I thought it was obvious from the get-go that she was gonna say, this isn't much news to me except the part where she says she's just started working in the 2nd Season. I thought they already were shooting at the same time as Gunn was working on Superman as other directors took the wheel.

And the logo looks the same to me tbh.

As Russel T Davis says, hard to draw a distinction between nepotism and wanting to work with somebody because of familiarity and an established working relationship; it happens in every industry this way as well.

The more time goes on the more annoying it is that the Suicide Squad stuff is staying, it just doesn’t feel right
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/18/2024, 5:21 PM
@Ha1frican - I can understand people’s issues with it but since both TSS and Peacemaker worked for me , I don’t mind it tbh.
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 6/18/2024, 5:28 PM
@Ha1frican - I'm fine with it if there's a narrative reason for them to stick around. Otherwise it's just nepotism,and that's lame
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/18/2024, 5:32 PM
@bkmeijer1 - not exactly nepotism but favoritism moreso

However honestly if it was me , I would probably do the same thing

Logically speaking though , I doubt the SS corner will crossover that much with the main DCU so I’m fine with it’s being it’s own thing while something like Wonder Woman makes sense to recast if you are recasting Superman and Batman aswell.
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 6/19/2024, 2:33 AM
@TheVisionary25 - yeah, favouritism could also be used to explain it. I get it, but it's just a weird corner of the DC universe to keep around. Think JL should get priority
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/19/2024, 5:18 AM
@bkmeijer1 - I’m sure it will but Gunn is known for his weird sensibilities so it’s not surprising lol
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 6/19/2024, 7:15 AM
@TheVisionary25 - definitely, and I don't mind it that much per se. Gunn has shown again and again he can make it work, so I trust him to get it all done again
