The Boys season 3 trailer: Billy Butcher and Homelander prepare for fierce battles on an even playing field
The Boys season 3 trailer has been released. On Monday, streaming platform Amazon Prime Video released a nearly two-and-a-half-minute trailer for the action-packed series’ third season. The video begins with a somewhat eerie scene in which the famous superhero Homelander promises to introduce the world to the “real me” while emphasizing that he is a normal person who has fallen in love with the “wrong woman”. As the trailer progresses, we’re reintroduced to familiar characters like vigilante antihero William “Billy” Butcher and selfless superhero Starlight. We also get a glimpse of scheming tycoon Stan Edgar, who talks about the true meaning of power. Going by the trailer, we’ll likely see this character at his manipulation best this time around.
The highlight of The Boys Season 3 trailer, however, is a sequence in which Butcher gets superpowers for a day thanks to a special chemical. This indicates that Butcher and Homelander’s battles will be much bloodier and more intense this time around.
Titled by Karl Urban as Butcher, Jack Quaid as civilian member of The Boys Hughie Campbell, and Antony Starr as Homelander, The Boys Season 3 cast features Jensen Ackles and Sean Patrick Flanery as new additions. Ackies plays Soldier Boy, a superhero with a solid backstory. Flanery, meanwhile, plays the Judge Dredd-inspired Gunpowder.
While we don’t know much about the Boys season 3 story developer, Eric Kripke revealed a while back that he’ll be using Soldier Boy to examine the story of the United States. He told Gizmodo: “Season 3 dives a lot more into the story of how we got here through this Soldier Boy character. We got to dig into both the history of the country and also really look at the toxic masculinity and male roles, and what a shitty show it’s caused overall,”
The first three episodes of the eight-part season 3 of The Boys will be released on June 3 on Amazon Prime Video. A new episode will be released every Friday with the finale likely to air on July 8.
