The Boys Season 3: Eric Kripke Tells What to Expect from Jensen Ackles
In a recent interview, The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke talked about the third season’s approach to Soldier Boy. The Soldier Boy, the first super, to be played by Jensen Ackles.
“I think anyone expecting [Ackles] to show up and be a good guy, they will be disappointed,” Kripke.
“In the comics, he’s mostly just kind of bumbling and subservient to Homelander, I would say. As we’re writing him in this, we’re getting to really talk about the history of Vought because he’s like John Wayne,” he continued.
“He’s one of these guys that’s been around for decades of Vought history. And he was Homelander before Homelander, so he’s from a different era, but he’s got the ego and the ambition – it just comes across differently because he’s from a different time.”
