While we can''t talk about the man''s personal life professionally? It''s a good day to be Jensen Ackles. You''re executive producing and returning as Dean Winchester to direct The CW''s spinoff series, and then there''s the matter of his return as the time-displaced walking personification of toxic masculinity, Soldier Boy, in Amazon and Showrunner & EP Eric Kripke''s third season of. For that reason, Amazon has released a compilation video of Soldier Boy''
Here''s a look at the best Ackles had to offer throughout the third season, followed by a look back at a season''s worth of interesting Soldier Boy extras:
Soldier Boy''s Journey In Season 3 of The Boys
Here''s a look back at Soldier Boy''s battles with Butcher (Karl Urban), Homelander (Antony Starr), Hughie (Jack Quaid) and Annie/Starlight (Erin Moriarty). Following that, we have a narrative about what happened between Soldier Boy and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell):
A scene from the film, a look at Soldier Boy''s appearance, and a look back at a PSA from 1982 (as well as some "interesting" deleted footage) :
Stephanie Williams, a DC comic writer, gives a breakdown of Soldier Boy''s Season 3 run and how he compares and contrasts with his comic book counterpart:
Eric Kripke, the showrunner and producer of The Boys, discusses Season 4 and Beyond.
In July, Kripke covered a ton of topics in his interview with (check out the complete interview with a ton of other details here) with Butcher (Urban), Ryan, Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), Starlight (Erin Moriarty), Soldier Boy (Ackles), and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell):
Should Ryan be expecting him to return to "Brightburn"? "Ryan is a significant part of the story because he''s half Becca, half Homelander. If Butcher can get his shit together, then that might be the single best weapon they have against Homelander. But vice versa. If Homelander wins the kid over, that''s apocalyptic because then there''s two Homelanders. It''s like ''Kramer vs. Kramer: End
What we''re enquiring about Butcher is that he has so much to do that he hasn''t done it. What we''re enquiring about Butcher is: Is he self-aware enough to know if he can change? Here are some of the most interesting conversations we''re enquiring about Season 4.
Maeve''s leaving will keep Starlight quiet until she returns? "I''m not sure how ''The Boys'' will come to an end." We wanted to completely automate her abilities by sending her off and giving her a happy ending with Elena. It''s all up to Annie. So, what will she do?
Long Live Black Noir! "Without spoiling anything, I will just say this: If you notice in the flashbacks of this season, it was a different actor [Fritzy-Klevans Destine], and perhaps the reason we did that is so that if we were to recast Noir, we might recast him with Nathan [Mitchell, the original Black Noir actor].
It''s like, never close a door or open a window, but we''ll all have to wait and see, but I''m not sure the ending would be made possible without Soldier Boy making another appearance? "The old TV adage is like, never kill anyone unless you really, really, really have to. Never open a window, and never close a door. We''ll all have to wait and see, so I can''t imagine it ending without Soldier Boy making another appearance."
