Peacemaker Season 2 Vigilante - What Happens To Freddie Stroma’s Role? 

Peacemaker is the very first series in the DC Extended Universe, premiering on HBO Max. The show stars John Cena as Chris Smith/Peacemaker alongside other cast members including Freddie Stroma as Adrian Chase/Vigilante, Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo, Jennifer Holland as Emilia Harcourt… On the heels of its renewal, will we have the chance to see Peacemaker season 2 Vigilante?

It might sound hard to believe because the 35-year-old actor was not in the main cast at the first place. The character was meant to be portrayed by another actor. The filming actually took place to the firth episode already but Chris Conrad decided to withdraw from the show, mid-production.
Director James Gunn explained that this was due to creative differences between the actor and the team. Therefore, Stroma was recast as a result of this departure. “So we brought Freddie in, five-and-a-half episodes in, and I reshot all of his scenes,” Gunn explained. Surprisingly, this is definitely one of the best things that happened to this TV series.
The starring actor of The Crew stole the show several times thanks to his great performance in portraying the goofy, psychotic and chaotic antihero. Many audiences and fans stated that his screen-time was their favorite in the whole show. Needless to say his handsomeness is out of this world and completely in contrast to his character’s persona.

Thanks to the first season’s success, the announcement of a sequel season quickly came out right before the show’s finale. The success of the series was already expected since James Gunn had already taken part in several successful projects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and also the DCEU. He produced The Guardians Of The Galaxy franchise, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. His debut work with DC was The Suicide Squad which received positive reviews from audiences and critics as well. 
While we are all anticipating reuniting with Peacemaker season 2 Vigilante, Stroma himself is also happily ready to reprise his role. While talking to Collider, the actor expressed his willingness to portray the crazy character once again. “As long as James is writing it, I'm good. I trust him completely. I think he hit it out of the park and I think he'll do it again. And I feel safe in his hands. Whatever he is going to do, I'm on board,” he said about his excitement for the upcoming season. 
In the first season, we acknowledge that Vigilante also had a dark past which turned him into the person he is now. His back story is somehow similar to John Cena’s Peacemaker, however, less tragic. In the second season of the series, we expect to see more about his back story and also his “bromance”, friendship with the main character, Smith. Unlike his fellow, Andrian did not have a turning point that changed his point of being a hero. It would be nice to witness his character development more in the upcoming season. Moreover, Stroma is definitely a born talent as he might portray any kind of character. This man might be a Prince Charming in Bridgeton to a wise writer in Time After Time. Expectedly, he has so much more to perform.
