‘It ruined the whole experience’: The Boys Star Regrets Joining The Series For This Weird Yet Valid Reason

Tomer Capone regrets joining The Boys for a really weird reason. The actor who plays Frenchie on the show now regrets being a part of it. The show is a satire on Superheroes that people so love to admire. In the past decade, we have seen the advent of the superhero genre as it becomes mainstream. The Prime Video show challenges that, showing us a group of Supes who are corrupted by their power and fame. A group of vigilantes called “The Boys” has come together to beat these self-righteous “superheroes” and eradicate them before it’s too late. The show has a huge fanbase but for some reason one of the actors on the show hates it.

He said, “I think it ruined the whole superhero experience for me. I used to think that men in Spandex who have special powers are cool. But this show just wiped that away. When I see superheroes on screen, I don’t buy them anymore. In the last 10 years, everybody was into the whole superhero thing, trying to run away from reality. And then I read The Boys and I’m like, ‘They took the genre and f*cking flipped it.” They said, ‘Let’s see how superheroes act in front of the mirror when they’re finishing their day. What are they really about when they’re taking the Spandex off?”

The Boys has given viewers the most despicable villains

The show has an array of villains who are just despicable, all you can feel for them is hate. And these villains are none other than a satirical version of some of our favorite superheroes like Homelander is anti-Superman and the latest season has even corrupted the most righteous hero to ever exist, Captain America, by introducing Soldier Boy.

Anyone who watches the show would get to see how superpowers can corrupt the minds of the heroes and they can go bad abusing the trust people have in them. The Boys is so great at presenting its point that anyone who watches it would hate the “Supes” too. And an actor so closely connected to the project, it is no surprise that Tomer Capone cannot like Superhero movies anymore.
