Season 3 of The Boys has introduced Jensen Ackles' Soldier Boy, who might be the only one strong enough to defeat Homelander.
Season 3 of The Boys has introduced Soldier Boy, a hero-turned-villain who might just end up being a hero if Bill the Butcher gets his way. But this Soldier Boy is very different to his comic book incarnation. Just BEWARE OF THE BOYS SPOILERS AHEAD…
Jensen Ackles is the actor tasked with bringing Soldier Boy to life in The Boys. Born in Dallas, Texas, he first made his name in Days of Our Lives, appearing on the soap opera from 1997 to 2000.
He then became a heartthrob in a pair of hugely successful teen dramas, playing CJ in Dawson’s Creek, and the villainous Jason Teague in Smallville.
But Ackles is best-known for starring in Supernatural for the best part of 15 years. That show ended in 2020, but after having finished work on Season 3 of The Boys, he’s since segued into Supernatural spin-off, The Winchesters.
Central to The Boys’ plot is them trying to stop the seemingly unstoppable Homelander. Nothing has worked thus far, with Homelander killing everything and everyone that crosses his path.
Bill the Butcher seems to think that Soldier Boy and his energy blasts are the answer. So-much-so that he gave up the Crimson Countess – whom Soldier Boy then proceeded to kill – in exchange for his help.
Will Soldier Boy remain true to his word? And does he have the powers to defeat Homelander? Viewers should find out by the end of this season. But before then, we’ve got Herogasm to look forward to just one week from now.
