‘The Boys’ season 3: Soldier Boy undergoes a major change in the character

Shortly before the premiere of the second installment of the comic book-based American television series, producers announced the renewal of The Boys season 3.  Furthermore, Amazon Prime’s version will make a major change to Soldier Boy’s character.

The Boys is based on the comic book of the same name created by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. It follows the story of a team of superheroes who go up against their abusers. The series adaptation, however, was initially released last year in July on Amazon Prime. While the first and second seasons garnered positive reviews from Amazon viewers, fans have been eagerly waiting for significant details on The Boys season 3.

Soldier Boy will have a change in character

Although there are many versions of Soldier Boy that seems to feature his life beginning from the World war up to the present time, his character will be different from the series.

When he fought during World War 2, he became the superhero icon in almost all-American war stories. Unlike the comic book Soldier Boy, the television series version, played by Jensen Ackles, will live a long life and become a movie star.

However, the rest of Soldier Boy’s story remains to be a mystery as Amazon has not divulged additional details yet. For the moment, there are still questions as to how Ackles’ character would fit across the entire third season.

Meanwhile, a new character, Supersonic will be joining the series, but will only appear on three or four episodes. He is somebody from Starlight’s past. They met during the Superhero Pageant Circuit and started dating afterward.  Insiders have it that Jeffrey Dean Morgan will be cast as Supersonic. Nothing definite on that yet and discussions are on-going.  For certain though, there is a willingness on the part of the actor.

“The Boys” season 3 cast and release date

Other than the main stars, only Jensen Ackles has confirmed that he is joining the show.  Seasons 2 and 3 will see the main cast reprising their roles. The Boys stars Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Kapon as Frenchie, Karen Fukuhara as Kimiko, Erin Moriarty as Annie January, Chace Crawford as the Deep, Antony Starr as Homelander, and Aya Cash as Stormfront.

There is no definite date for the release of The Boys season 3. Should producers decide to follow the trend, it will sometime be at the end of 2021. That is if the coronavirus intends to slow down and allow economic turnaround.
