The Boys season 3, Soldier Boy and other news.
So, I assume everyone is watching The Boys and are eagerly waiting for any crumb of news they can sink their teeth in, like the cannibalistic vultures they are. Wait, there’s people who haven’t? Well what in the vought, F***sakes, are you waiting for?
The Boys is some of the best programing out there that bases it’s story in the comic book of the same name. However, it turns everything we know about supes on its head. Who can you trust, if you can’t trust the Superheroes “made to protect you?” Jensen joins the cast as Soldier Boy.
The Boys, Season 3
Eric Kripe did a podcast were he talks about the show. It’s an hour long but worth a listen. For those who want a quick idea of what to expect for Season three, read on.
What to expect this season on The Boys?
Season 3 will continue to explore the origins of Vought and the Seven through the addition of Jensen’s Soldier Boy. Vought is never as it seems and Soldier Boy, is a catalyst for that exploration.
Not the Idyllic Past that Vought’s pushing with propaganda
“One of the reasons that we’re getting into Soldier Boy [in season 3] and that team, Payback, is we’re interested in exploring a little bit of how we got here,”
Kripke told Entertainment Weekly. Soldier Boy was part of an original team called Payback. Additional members of said team are Stormfront, Eagle the Archer, Tek Knight, and Chrimson Countess. Those characters will get fleshed out as the viewer learn about Soldier Boy’s past.
“Through the history of the supes, we can tell a little bit about the history of America and how we ended up in the current fraught position that we’re in. Soldier Boy gives us an opportunity to do that.”
More blood and violenpce
Season three will be a bloodbath. If Alonso’s intel is right, it will be all about the gore and shock factor. Laz Alonso, who plays Mother’s milk, has confirmed to Collider that there will be at least three times the amount of bloodshed this season.
“I was talking to the head makeup artist and she’s in charge of ordering the blood — that’s one of her many jobs and She told me that all of Season 2… When you talk about bulk, I don’t think they used over a gallon of blood in Season 2, believe it or not. Season 3, we’re already at three and a half gallons of blood. So that should give you a little indication of where it’s going.”
Soldier Boy, “The original Superhero.”

Soldier Boy’s Abilities & Weakness
- Superhuman strength: Soldier Boy is not as strong as Homelander, Stormfront, or any other supes. However, his strength is similar to that of a super-soldier.
- Superhuman Speed: Soldier Boy is able to dodge bullets as well as punches and blows easily.
- Skilled use of his shield: Soldier Boy is an expert user of his shield, which he uses as a melee weapon.
- Expertise in hand-to-hand combat: Soldier Boy is able to be in control and alongside his speed, repeatedly throwing blows that stun opponents.
Stay Tuned for a Vought broadcast…
Erik Kripe revealed in his twitter, a new twitter account, Vought International. It appears this twitter will be where they tease Season 3. It’s a clever way to promote the season given how they have used the propoganda to drive the show.
There is no official word regarding a possible release date for The Boys season 3 but everyone is on the edge of their seats ready for our boys to take down some corrupt supes.
