For years, the superhero genre has dominated the entertainment business, yet a few ventures have managed to turn it on its head. The Boys, an Amazon live-action series, has done exactly that, depicting the genuine anarchy that would ensue if superpowered beings existed. And Jensen Ackles’ newbie Soldier Boy is featured prominently in The Boys Season 3 trailer. Also, Antony Starr’s Homelander appears to be becoming even more unhinged, which is saying a lot.
The Boys is a more adult and bawdy take on the superhero genre, involving more sex, violence, and profanity than is normally the case. It is based on the comic series by Garth Ennis and Darrick Robertson. The plot revolves around an underground group of humans who utilize everything they have to take down corrupt superheroes who misuse their authority, despite the fact that most of them lack superpowers.
What does The Boys Season 3 trailer reveal?
Homelander is in PR mode following his catastrophe last season, when he became embroiled with Stormfront, who turned out to be a Nazi, while Billy Butcher tries to level the playing field in his battle against the supes by becoming one of them, according to the latest trailer for The Boys season 3. There are also a few new characters in the video, including Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy, who appears in both flashback and modern-day in the upcoming season, complete with really extreme abilities.
The Boys is infamous for its excessive amounts of blood and violence, and this trailer for Season 3 is no exception. The gore starts early in the trailer, as an unnamed individual falls from Vought International’s building and bursts into a million bits. We observe a wine bottle impaled in someone’s throat and Soldier Boy viciously killing someone with a shield. Crimson Countess, another new hero, is also seen using her abilities to turn two men into jelly.
Hughie (Jack Quaid) is now working for Congresswoman Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) in the Federal Bureau of Superhuman Affairs, where he’s essentially Butcher’s boss and in charge of keeping track of super crimes, with the first three episodes premiering on June 3 before moving to a weekly series. Season 2 ended a year ago, and Butcher has kept mum since then. He hasn’t even been drinking while visiting Ryan, who is under the care of Grace Mallory (Laila Robbins). However, this will undoubtedly change.
