Along with revealing the release date, the creators of Boys have also shared the first teaser for the upcoming season. The teaser clip was shared on the official Instagram handle of the series, which is less than one minute in length. Although the teaser clip does not reveal much about what will happen in The Boys Season 3, it still manages to give the audience an idea of where is Homelander headed in the next season and what the fans should expect from it.
In the clip, fans saw the leader of Vought’s The Seven, Homelander. He is standing with his enemy Starlight while several media paparazzi are clicking photographs of the duo in The Seven’s main headquarters. Visibly, Homelander is trying to maintain his forced smile while the cameras are flashing all around him. However, as the teaser progresses, he can be seen making his signature evil smirk face, showing that Homelander may not be in a very good space of mind heading into The Boys Season 3.
The teaser suggests that Antony Starr‘s wicked supe may go down an even darker path in The Boys Season 3. Viewers clearly saw him appearing moments away from a violent outburst as he struggled to keep his rage hidden in the teaser. It is also quite visible how concerned Ashley Barrett is because she knows how close he is to a full-fledged breakdown.
The Boys Teases Crimson Countess!
A few months ago, the creators of The Boys came up with one of the most unique ways of promoting the series with Vought News. Vought News International is a Youtube channel that is run by the evil corporation from The Boys universe. Seven on 7 is a regular [fictional] news bulletin program that provides updates about Vought’s superheroes.
Meanwhile, the latest edition of Voght’s Seven on 7 revealed more information about the female Supe Crimson Countess. The anchor Cameron Coleman introduced the Crimson Countess as a “former Payback member.” The character originally appeared in The Boys comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. Crimson Countess is a member of Vought’s superhero team Payback, which is considered to be a parody of The Avengers from Marvel.
The character of Crimson Countess is said to be based on Wanda Maximoff Aka Scarlet Witch from Marvel Comics. Coleman also informed about Crimson Countess’ recently established charity, chimpanzee shelter simply called Chimp Country. He also mentioned photos, vintage memorabilia, and limited meet/greet packages offered by Crimson Countess. The profit amount will be used for the construction of Chimp Country.
The Black Noir Twist In The Boys Season 3
There is an intriguing fan theory about The Boys Season 3 that has been surfacing on the internet for a while now. The theory concerns Homelander and Black Noir. The second season ended badly for both the characters. Black Noir was severely harmed when Maeve fed him a nut bar to which he is allergic. On the other hand, Homelander’s Nazi lover was killed by his son Ryan.
The Reddit theory indicates that in The Boys Season 3 Vought, CEO Stan Edgar will likely clone Homelander and use him while Black Noir remains unconscious. And when Black Noir wakes up from his coma, there will be a conflict between Homelander, his clone, and Black Noir. At the end of the second season, Homelander was losing his sanity. Thus it seems plausible that Stan Edgar will likely have a backup plan if things go south.
According to theory, Victoria Neuman will continue to go ahead with her plan. On the other hand, Black Noir will have no memory of his encounter with the girls who fed him nuts. Simultaneously, the clone will try to take Homelander’s place in Voght and the world. This will result in Homelander falling into madness. Meanwhile, Black Noir will wake from his coma around the time.
This will be a buildup for a big three-way fight between Black Noir, Homelander, and his clone. If this happens, fans would finally see someone as strong as Homelander going head to head with him.
