PEACEMAKER Director James Gunn On The Show's Inspired Opening Credits Dance Sequence

Peacemaker's opening credits are set to a bonkers dance number, and director James Gunn has now explained how he came up with the sequence and why he decided to include it in the show's intro...

The first three episodes of Peacemaker are now available to stream on HBO Max, and if you've checked them out, you'll have seen the hilarious opening credits dance sequence set to Wig Wam's "Do Ya Wanna Taste It."

The intro sees the main cast members, including John Cena, Jenna Holland, Freddie Stroma, Danielle Brooks and even Eagly, bust out some awkwardly choreographed dance moves while keeping straight faces (that can't have been easy). While chatting to Screen Rant, writer/director James Gunn explains that he came up with the sequence as "a way to show audiences that you don't know what to expect from this show."

"This is not your usual DC or Marvel TV show," he continued. "This is a show in which our characters can do the most ridiculous dance in the world with the most serious look on their faces. I hired a choreographer by the name of Charissa Barton, who was incredibly talented and she helped me to put it together and we shot it in a day in a high school auditorium."

In a separate interview with Polygon, Gunn said he wanted to include an intro that would “vanquish the skip forward button.” It worked, because we've seen the first seven episodes of Peacemaker (check out our review here), and watched the entire 90-second dance number every time!
