A new clip from Peacemaker includes a tip for fans on how to win over the titular antihero's avian sidekick, Eagly.
Shared onto the Peacemaker Twitter account, the clip begins with an unmasked Peacemaker opening his car and being greeted by Eagly. The pair is then joined by Leota Adebayo, who asks if Eagly is friendly. However, Leota is then bitten by Eagly, with Peacemaker later revealing he thought she was asking if Eagly was friendly to him.
Following Leota expressing disbelief at Peacemaker's claim of Eagly hugging him -- an act seen in the series' first trailer -- the clip ends with Peacemaker getting to know "the new girl," who tells him she has done a lot of "notable things." Above the clip is a tweet that tells viewers they should "bring chips if [they] want to make a good first impression on Eagly."
Prior to the release of the clip, series creator James Gunn revealed that every episode of Peacemaker will have a post-credits scene. Additionally, the filmmaker recently said that The Suicide Squad is not required viewing in order to watch Peacemaker, pointing out that the latter will "fill [the viewers] in at the beginning of the show."
As for why it was decided to have Peacemaker star in his own series, Gunn answered that, unlike the other characters in The Suicide Squad, Peacemaker's story arc remains unfinished. "In the movie... Harley [Quinn] gets a really complete story about herself, she gets a complete arc. Bloodsport gets a complete story. Rick Flag gets a complete story. Ratcatcher 2 gets a complete story," said Gunn. "They all learn something about themselves -- sometimes good things, sometimes bad things -- but Peacemaker is a douche and he stays a douche and he's an asshole in the movie. But I think there's something below that." Gunn also previously said the show will delve into Peacemaker's origins, though he later clarified this did not mean it would be a prequel to The Suicide Squad.
Regarding the series' future, Gunn expressed interest in doing multiple seasons of Peacemaker, saying, "You know, there's not a big plan in place, but again, it's something that I would love to do and I know that the cast would love to do. So we're all, you know, we haven't been picked up yet. So we'll just have to see what happens from HBO Max."
Created by James Gunn, Peacemaker hits HBO Max on Jan. 13.
