The boys Releases the Season 2 comic book poster illustrated by co-creator Darick Robertson. The successful Amazon Prime original series was adapted from a comic book series of the same name created by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. Notes for The boys Season 2 rivaled some of Netflix’s most popular shows. Season 3 is currently filming.
The first season of The boys introduced a world where superheroes, or “supes”, exist, including a group called the Seven, whom everyone considers to be the first group of superheroes. After his girlfriend Robin is brutally killed by a member of the Seven, Hughie Cambell (Jack Quaid) quickly learns that most superheroes are not as noble as they are claimed. Season 2 continued with the theme of complete dismantling and satirizing common superhero tropes. Hughie and the self-defense group the Boys attempted to defeat the Seven with help from inside Starlight (Erin Moriarty) but ultimately failed in their mission. Season 2 ended with a lot of blood, blackmail, exploded heads, and new starts.
The official Twitter account of The boys joked that they celebrated National Superhero Day, “just this timeto share a fantastic comic book poster illustrated by Darick Robertson. The poster perfectly summed up season two without a single caption. Check out Robertson’s excellent illustrations below.
Robertson’s poster is excellent because of its incredible detail. From Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell) surrounded by his kryptonite Almond Joy to Homelander (Antony Starr) taking up the majority of the display space to Billy Butcher, Hughie and the rest of the boys who seem ready to kick ass and take some super names. Which makes The boys such a fascinating sight to watch is the fact that the plot craziness seems to increase exponentially from every previous season without completely going off the rails. Actor Laz Alonso, who plays Mother’s Milk, teased this The boys Season 3 will be three times bloodier than Season 2, which is saying a lot.
Season 3 will also tackle the “herogasm” arc of the original comic book series and feature the introduction of Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy. The boys Showrunner Eric Kripke also shared several images from Season 3. Articles related to Kripke Season 3 included a golden Homelander statue, a Vought-sponsored girl-only gun convention, and set photos teasing the film set in the Dawn of the Seven universe.
The boys Season 3 currently does not have an official release date. However, the first and second seasons are definitely worth a replay session in the meantime. With a bit of luck The boys will carry on the storytelling momentum that made the first two seasons so bloody, daring, and brilliant through Season 3 and beyond. If there’s anything this series teaches fans, it’s to believe the old adage “Never meet your heroes”.
