Peacemaker would begin production in early 2021, before Gunn began his work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for Marvel Studios.[1]

On October 9, 2020, Hollywood North Buzz reported that filming would begin in Vancouver on January 11, 2021, and would end on June 9, 2021, assuming the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic wouldn't delay production. They also reported that the working title for Peacemaker was "The Scriptures."
