Though what surprised the viewers is that Theron recently made another cameo appearance as Clea in the post-credits scene of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Though, Marvel referred to in the Boys have always been one of the latter’s part but showrunner Eric Kripke clarified that Theron’s cameo in the series was completely unintentional. He added that Theron’s appearance in Doctor Strange 2 surprised him, “I was watching with my kids and when that came up, I was like, ‘Yes! Yes!’ So that was amazing.”

Eric Kripke further told how the highly in-demand star landed at The Boys in the first place.


“Like most cameos on our show, it follows the rigorous and stringent screening process of whoever returns Seth Rogen’s phone calls… and to her immense and everlasting credit — she had just made The Long Shot with Seth — and to her incredible credit, she agreed to come on and help us out. I actually feel kind of bad about it, because I’m sure he positioned it like, ‘Hey, do us a favor, pop on camera and it’s a cameo.’ Then the next call is our costume designer, ‘OK, you need to come in and we need to design this super suit.’ She shows up on a whole big day of shooting with several camera crews and everything.”

Kripke also mentioned how Theron’s dedicated to her work, “But she was such an immensely great sport and is so funny. I mean, obviously, she’s in comedies, but watching her work up close and in person, the level with which she commits to the most ridiculous dialogue that anyone has ever said, it’s absurd. The heart and soul with which she delivers it is so funny and stunning. We were really lucky to have her.”
