As we’re writing him on this, we’re getting to actually discuss in regards to the historical past of Vought as a result of he is like John Wayne. He’s certainly one of these guys that is been round for many years of Vought historical past. And he was Homelander earlier than Homelander, so he is from a special period, however he is acquired the ego and the ambition — it simply comes throughout another way as a result of he is from a special time.”
Ackles will be part of the collection for the primary time in its third season, reuniting with Kripke after the 2 beforehand labored on Supernatural collectively.

As Soldier Boy, the very first Superhero, he’ll deliver a lot humor, pathos, and hazard to the position. I can not wait to be on set with him once more, and produce a little bit of Supernatural to The Boys.”
