Now that The Boys Season 2 finale has already aired with that shocking death, fans are already looking forward to Season 3 as it introduces Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy. For the unversed, Ackles collaborated with The Boys creator Erik Kripke for the popular TV show Supernatural and will reunite with him once again. In a recent interview with Variety, Kripke teased on what we can expect from Soldier Boy.

When asked if Soldier Boy will be innocent like in the comics or if he will be one the more ruthless supes, Erik quipped that is anyone is expecting Jensen to show up and be a good boy on The Boys, they will be disappointed. Noting how in the comics, Soldier Boy is mostly a "bumbling and subservient to Homelander (Antony Starr)," Kripke confessed that as they're writing him for the series, they're talking about the history of Vought because Soldier Boy is like "John Wayne."

"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 in a different way because he’s from a different time," Erik further explained to Variety.
