Also I should thank @ElizabethBanks who I called to do an asshole check to make sure @frediestroma was a good guy (I won’t work with assholes) – she worked with him on Pitch Perfect – she told me he was great & she was right! #Peacemaker #PeacemakerParty

What do you think of this funny anecdote?
The best premiere in the history of the DCEU
James Gunn and Elizabeth Banks worked together on the superhero horror film titled The son (2019). The filmmaker was the producer of the film, while Elizabeth Banks gave life to the adoptive mother Tori Breyer. Thanks to his recommendation, the Stroma Watcher has been working like a charm and has been very well received by the fans.
In fact, peacemaker is the highest rated DCEU product to date. It already has a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes, surpassing by one percentage point wonder-woman (2017) and Suicide Squad, which had a ninety percent valuation. However, it does not surpass such acclaimed DC Comics series as Doom Patrol or Watchmen, which are above the James Gunn series.
