PEACEMAKER Is The Best Reviewed Entry In The DC Extended Universe To Date With A 93% Score On Rotten Tomatoes

James Gunn's Peacemaker series, starring John Cena in the title role, is officially "certified fresh" with a 93% score based on forty-three reviews, making it the best reviewed DCEU-set project to date.

The newest addition to the DC Extended Universe is now available to stream via HBO Max. Peacemaker is a spinoff from James Gunn's The Suicide Squad (which debuted back in August of last year and is also available to stream via HBO Max), and serves as a continuation of the story of John Cena's Christopher Smith, A.K.A. Peacemaker, following the events of the film.

Though only the first three episodes of Peacemaker are available to stream, many critics have seen the first seven installments, and a consensus has now been reached: Peacemaker is a hit.

Rotten Tomatoes has collated forty-three reviews from professional critics and calculated that 93% of them are positive, which makes the Peacemaker series "certified fresh" by the site's metric. The series has also earned a positive score from audiences (86%).

"John Cena's still in solid form as Peacemaker, leading a bloody good time that gives writer-director James Gunn full permission to let his freak flag fly," reads the critics' consensus.

Peacemaker's 93% Tomatometer score puts it in joint first place, tied with 2017's Wonder Woman, as the highest-rated entry in the DC Extended Universe to date. The series has even surpassed the Tomatometer score of The Suicide Squad (90%). Here's hoping the remaining five episodes gain as much acclaim. 

Two of the positive reviews taken into account by Rotten Tomatoes hail from ComicBookMovie.com. You can check out Josh Wilding's four-and-a-half star review and Mark Cassidy's four-star review here.
