Following the revelation from James Gunn that the stunt coordinator for DC’s Peacemaker, Wayne Daglish, was recommended to him by none other than fellow DC alum Zack Snyder, fans online are once again calling on Warner Bros. to re-induct the Army of the Dead director back into the DC cinematic franchise he once spearheaded.

When one fan remarked how happy he was to hear Snyder was “in these conversations” about Peacemaker, Gunn clarified the exchange happened due to the two directors being friends in real life.

Their friendship was something fans were ecstatic to hear about.

Another Twitter user couldn’t help but point out to WB, Snyder’s name trending on the social media site amid the Peacemaker conversations is proof positive the brand of the director is potentially still quite marketable for DC properties.

Following the success of HBO Max’s Zack Snyder’s Justice League in 2021, which WarnerMedia President Priya Dogra called a “global phenomenon,” fans have not let up on their request for the 300 director to continue his vision with a sequel.

Another fan called on DC enthusiasts to support both Gunn and Snyder, amid some calls to boycott WB, and by extension, not watch Peacemaker, as a protest for the studio not restoring the “Snyderverse.” After all, the pair clearly supports each other and boasts a long history, having both collaborated on the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead, a film Snyder Directed and Gunn penned. 

You can watch the first three episodes of Peacemaker on HBO Max now, with each subsequent episode coming out once per week on Thursdays.
