People of Peace debuted on HBO Max last week and it made a huge impact on the DC fandom. Especially, fan favorite unique title sequence, which features John Cena and the rest of the cast dancing to the theme tune. The opening was so instantly iconic that everyone was imagining what it would be like if other superhero series had kicked off the same way. What about a much darker program that does the same thing? Maybe Marvel’s Daredevil?
A real fan pitched this idea to writer/director James Gunn on Twitter, and People of Peace showrunner loves the sound of it. “I want to see them do the Peacemaker intro,” said the fan, pointing to a promotional photo of Charlie Cox and Daredevil cast. Gunn responded by tagging Deborah Ann Woll (who plays Karen Page) to the chat, asking her “you in?”
Brilliant, Woll responded to Gunn’s tweet and implied that she’s definitely in, by replying with a GIF of Kevin Bacon in Footloose. That’s a pretty nice meta GIF to use in this context, given all the references to Bacon and the ’80s hit in Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
Well, that’s a Daredevil cast member to recreate People of Peace introduction. Someone grabs Cox, D’Onofrio and the rest of the gang. With the return of Matt Murdock and Kingpin to the MCU over the past few months, it is assumed that some sort of Daredevil revival is at work. So maybe we need to start a petition asking the studio to make the new show’s title a dance sequence – set to epic DD Theme music, obviously.
While we wait for more Daredevil (with or without dancer), new episodes of People of Peace coming on Thursdays on HBO Max.
