The Boys Season 3 Opening Scene is Jaw-Dropping, Teases Showrunner

The Boys executive producer, writer, and showrunner, Eric Kripke, teases season 3’s opening scene as “jaw-droppingly insane.” Based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic series of the same name, Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys has received critical and commercial acclaim thanks to its outlandish take on the superhero genre. The TV-MA series follows Hughie Campbell, Billy Butcher, and their eponymous team of anti-superhero vigilantes as they attempt to expose Vought International, the multi-billion-dollar conglomerate that licenses corrupt and abusive “Supes.” Its cast includes Jack Quaid, Karl Urban, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, and Claudia Doumit.,Following The Boys’ shocking, hilarious, and tremendously successful debut run, season 2 of the series upped the ante in almost every perceivable way. Given the number of risks that were taken in 2020, season 3 is poised to swing for the fences when it premieres on June 3. Urban has revealed The Boys season 3 is so intense that they ran out of fake blood by episode 3—a situation undoubtedly exacerbated by the introduction of new Supes led by Jensen Ackles’ parody of Captain America, Soldier Boy. Now, The Boys’ showrunner has given fans some insight into episode 1.,Related: The Boys’ Season 3 Trailer Sets Up Its Biggest Secret Villain,In a recent interview with SFX Magazine (via Gamesradar), Kripke talked about the opening sequence of The Boys season 3. The showrunner teased the first 15 minutes as the craziest sequence pretty much any show has ever done before explaining the process of putting the scenes like that together. Read the full quote below:,In its second season, The Boys depicted a whale being speared by a speed boat, a very-adult version of Mr. Fantastic, and Homelander lasering people to death (among other things). Despite its chaos, season 2 ended on a blissful note, with Butcher, Frenchie, Kimiko, and Mother’s Milk awarded some peace and Hughie getting hired by Congresswoman Victoria Neuman, unaware of her true, explosive intentions. One of the reasons The Boys works so well is likely because of the creative process Kripke describes as it facilities a mindful balance of drama, comedy, and complete insanity.,The Boys’ season 3 trailers have showcased plenty of mayhem, social commentary, and teased the incorporation of a type of Compound-V that makes Butcher and the Boys Supes for 24 hours. The cast has talked about how season 3 will adapt one of the comics’ most notorious, explicit storylines in “Herogasm,” which supposedly left the crew traumatized and the director confused. While it’s unclear how season 3 will begin, the series’ pilot saw Hughie showered in blood and guts after A-Train ran through his girlfriend, Robin. Using that as a barometer, season 3 is sure to be a shocking, inappropriate, upsetting, and wildly entertaining affair.,More: The Boys Season 3 Shocking Herogasm Story Has Already Been Upstaged,Source: SFX Magazine (via Gamesradar)
