Freddie Stroma to Play DC Comics' Vigilante in HBO Max's 'Suicide Squad' Spinoff

Freddie Stroma is joining the DC Comics Universe!

The 34-year-old actor is set to play Vigilante aka Adrian Chase in Peacemaker, the HBO Max spinoff of the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, per TV Line.

The series will focus on the origins of John Cena‘s character from The Suicide Squad and follows Peacemaker, “a man who believes in peace at any cost — no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.”

Freddie‘s character is a New York City DA whose wife and kids are killed by mobsters, leading him to seek his own form of justice. He replaces Chris Conrad, who parted ways with the series “amicably due to creative differences” according to Deadline.

The Suicide Squad director James Gunn will write all eight episodes of the series and will also direct several episodes, including the series premiere.

The cast also includes Orange Is the New Black‘s Danielle Brooks (as Leota Adebayo), Scorpion‘s Robert Patrick (as Auggie Smith) and Kroll Show‘s Nhut Le (as Judomaster), with Steve Agee and Jennifer Holland reprising their roles as Belle Reve Penitentiary warden John Economos and ARGUS agent Emilia Harcourt.

Fans may recognize Freddie from his role in another iconic franchise!
