Peacemaker BTS Video Shows DCEU Cast Rehearsing Intro Scene Choreography

Writer/director James Gunn shares a behind-the-scenes video of Peacemaker’s cast rehearsing the choreography for the series’ opening sequence.

Writer/director James Gunn shares a behind-the-scenes video of Peacemaker’s cast rehearsing the choreography for the series’ opening sequence. With last summer’s R-rated The Suicide Squad, Gunn introduced a slew of misfits to the DCEU. One of those “villains,” John Cena’s Christopher Smith/Peacemaker, has gotten a new series on HBO Max, the first four episodes of which have been released. The show follows Cena’s “douchey Captain America” in the wake of The Suicide Squad. The spinoff’s cast also includes Jennifer Holland, Emilia Holland, Danielle Brooks, Chukwudi Iwuji, Robert Patrick, Freddie Stroma, and Nhut Le.


After killing Rick Flag in the name of peace, being shot by Bloodsport, and having a building fall on him, Peacemaker is revealed to have survived the events on Corto Maltese in The Suicide Squad’s post-credits scene—Amanda Waller’s (Viola Davis) team needs his help to “save the f—ing world.” In Peacemaker, its titular anti-hero joins up with ARGUS for the mysteriously named Project Butterfly. Peacemaker and Project Butterfly are proving to be just as delightfully absurd, if not more so, than The Suicide Squad and Project Starfish—something that becomes apparent in the show’s opening credits.

Gunn took to Twitter to share a BTS video of Peacemaker’s cast rehearsing the show’s wild dance number. The clip features interviews with Gunn, Holland, Iwuji, and choreographer Charissa Barton, who describes the now-iconic dance as being influenced by Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and claymation.

As seen above, Peacemaker’s opening sequence sees the entire cast dancing to Wig Wam’s “Do Ya Wanna Taste It,” while maintaining serious, stoic expressions. Although HBO Max gives audiences the option to skip the 90-second intro, they shouldn’t if they want to experience the show in its entirety. Peacemaker‘s opening dance will reportedly become sadder and less funny as the show’s story becomes darker.

Gunn has said he wrote the dance number into the script. His intent with it, and Peacemaker at large, is to subvert expectations in a genre that is being evoked ad nauseam across Marvel and DC. Aside from perhaps Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys, it’s safe to say Peacemaker is unlike most comic book shows on television right now—from its jukebox worth soundtrack and dance numbers to bald eagle sidekick and social commentary. As the show’s opening sequence evolves, there are bound to be even more surprises ahead. That being said, Gunn wouldn’t even release the show’s season 1 finale to credits. It seems likely Peacemaker’s final episodes will set up even more DC projects with, hopefully, even more dancing.
