A new trailer for the third season of Amazon Prime’s ultraviolent superhero satire The boys just dropped, and it’s teasing even more gory and crusty antics as well as the introduction of a handful of new characters. A video on the awesome emergency The channel breaks down all the key details from the trailer, including more than one Marvel Easter egg.
First, the trailer reveals that season three will be inspired by a storyline in the original comics in which Hughey is injected with Compound V – only in the series, Butcher is the one who appears to receive the superpowers from the compound V, including heat vision similar to Homelander. Could Butcher also become a villain? Who knows.
The trailer also gives fans a brief look at newcomer Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy, this show’s universe’s first superhero, and their equivalent of Captain America, with much the same backstory. origin of super-soldier-serum. His uniform even looks a lot like the one Chris Evans wears in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with an almost identical helmet, but in green instead of blue.
And he’s not the only Marvel analogue. We also see Gunpowder, which is The boys‘ response to The Punisher, and a character named Crimson Countess, a clear parallel to Scarlet Witch.
It also looks like some real people will be impersonated in season three: The trailer shows a parody of the controversial Pepsi ad starring Kendall Jenner from a few years ago, in which A-Train stops a fake protest using a can of his trademark energy drink.
