Peacemaker, the James Gunn series for DC and Warner Bros., reached its explosive end this past Thursday on HBO Max with a totally unexpected cameo that everyone is talking about. Now, James Gunn himself has recounted how they managed to film said scene taking advantage of the production of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 by Marvel Studios and in which Gunn was working on that moment. We warn of spoilers about the end of Peacemaker from the next paragraph.
The union of DC and Marvel Studios by James Gunn
This was reported by James Gunn himself in a recent interview with Variety, where the director detailed how they managed to shoot the final cameo with the Justice League in Peacemaker. And it is that according to Gunn, the possibility of using Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ezra Miller (Flash) required the help of Marvel Studios , as the filmmaker and writer was shooting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 at the time.
“Before we filmed the series we talked to Jason Momoa about it. The idea seemed great. He was pretty much on board from the start, really. So I asked him if he would come to the set and shoot this final scene, and he kindly agreed to do it. Marvel Studios actually shot the part of Ezra Miller for us while we were shooting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” says Gunn.
On the absence of Henry Cavill (Superman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Gunn denies that there were plans to include them, since in the end both characters have appeared half shadowed and without saying a word with the rest, thus avoiding showing the faces of some interpreters who do not correspond to the usual DC ones. “I actually thought it was going to be just Jason Momoa. Ezra Miller was kind of an extra, you know? I found out that he was interested in doing the cameo.”
On the other hand, neither Ben Affleck’s Batman nor Ray Fisher’s Cyborg appear in said cameo. strong>, something Gunn knows nothing about: “I think there are reasons for it, but I’m not really sure I can say what those reasons are. Perhaps they have to do with the future”, concludes the filmmaker. Although the absence of both may be due to Affleck’s departure from the role of Batman (with his planned dismissal in The Flash) and Warner Bros.’s veto of Fisher after his controversy with Joss Whedon and the production company itself.
