The Boys Season 3: Ever imagine what it would be like if Superman was corrupt and operated under a sinister conglomerate? You don’t have to imagine, as you can just watch The Boys on Amazon Prime Video. The superhero parody series created by Eric Kripke is based on adult comic series from creators Garth Ennis And Darick Robertson.
The show follows a group of vigilantes who have had enough of the Superheroes’ criminal arrogance and unaccountability towards their actions. The titular group is led by a dysfunctional gunslinging badass named William Butcher. The Boys stands up against the dubious team of ‘Supes’ called The Seven, backed by an evil multi-billion dollar corporation unit known as the Vought International.
The widely acclaimed series is a dark comedy action drama and one of the most popular contemporary TV shows. Under creator Eric Kripke, the show takes a no holds barred approach while portraying graphic violence. In addition, the show is a brilliant satirical take on the superhero genre and a dank yet accurate political commentary., The Boys has been up there with the most-streamed shows in the past three years. And, after two fantastic seasons, the hype for the show is only gone upwards, as fans are keenly waiting for The Boys Season 3.
Homelander Crowned ‘Sexiest Hero Alive’
He’s sexy, and he knows it! Paul Rudd might have been named as The Sexiest Man Alive in 2021. However, he is no match for a 5‘11 muscular blonde superhero with mommy issues if you’re into that kind of thing!
The latest edition of “V-PLE” Magazine from Vought Internation has just named leader of ‘The Seven’ Homelander, played by Anthony Starr as the ‘Sexiest Hero Alive.’ This came as a surprise to no one, based on the love the corporation has showered on Homelander over the years. The magazine cover also bestowed the title ‘Saint of a man’ on the Supe.
However, ‘The Boys’ shared another version of the magazine cover from their Twitter handle, the one which has been vandalized. A black eye and a dart in the head were among the few additions ‘The Boys’ made in their version of the original poster. This new poster is visual evidence of the contempt and hatred ‘The Boys’ possess for the leader of The Seven.
Although the title does not really mean anything, fans for sure are loving this brilliant marketing strategy from the team of ‘The Boys’. And they have been perfectly maintaining the hype for ‘The Boys’ Season 3.
What Will Happen Next?
The ending of the second season was bitter-sweet. Billy’s seasonlong attempts to get Becca back after discovering she’s alive end with her demise. Billy took Becca’s son Ryan to raise him. After taking a solid beating from the girls’ gang, Stormfront died when Ryan lost control over his powers. Meanwhile, Queen Maeve blackmailed a purposeless Homelander to include Starlight and A-Train in The Seven. However, the most shocking twist of the finale was that Victoria Neuman is a supe and the one behind all the head exploding.
Looking at the track record of the show, predicting season 3’s storyline is not an easy task, especially in absence of a trailer. However, based on the ending of the second season, we can assume that Victoria Neuman will be a key part of the third season’s storyline. Congresswoman Neuman is plotting her own plans which we are unaware of. The Boys Season 3 will also mark the entry of Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy, which is based on Marvel’s Captain America. Along with him, we’ll also see Crimson Countess in the third season. In The Boys comics, they both have been a part of a superhero team named PayBack.
