The Boys Season 3 is about to hit Prime Video while its brilliant promotion involving Soldier Boy continues to engage audiences’ attention. The Boys have continued to spoof Marvel’s Captain America by having Soldier Boy deliver an anti-drug public service announcement.
The Soldier boy is a character played by Supernatural star Jensen Ackles. Soldier Boy is a superhero from World War II who is brought out of retirement for reasons yet to be revealed. He has previously been described as the “Homelander before Homelander.” In the original comics, Soldier Boy was portrayed as innocent but the show’s version will show him with many of the worst traits.
Public Service Announcement (PSA) By The Soldier Boy Of The Upcoming Prime Video Series’ The Boys
Recently, ahead of The Boys Season 3, showrunner Eric Kripke shared a video of Ackles’ Soldier Boy on Twitter delivering his PSA with an anti-drug message. The clip was sponsored and approved by the Vought Ad Council which opens with the latter in his attire. The background has an American flag waving while the music of the video takes us back to the early days of the Just Say No campaign of the 1980s.
Check out the tweet below.

Soldier Boy Saying “Not Cool” To Those who Use Drugs
The Soldier Boy would link him to Captain America because of his costume, shield, and origins as a World War II-era hero. Though there are similarities, this latest clip will clarify these two characters in viewers’ minds. While Captain America is often considered first a man of virtue and honor, it is more than likely that the former will be presented as anything but. The former emphasizes “Taking Drugs is not cool,” fans of the series will understand the irony that many Supes use illicit drugs.
The upcoming season is gonna be a great treat for the fans as the show is including six new characters. The series is also coming up with the long-awaited “Herogasm” episode which is expected to be different from the rest of the episodes. The episode will be different as the Supes goes out for a yearly party but as an excuse for consuming drugs.
The Boys Season 3 will arrive on Amazon Prime Video on June 3.
