To begin, this model of Homelander (fortunately) does not use sexual abuse as some way of exercising his energy. Even if issues get bizarre with Doppelganger pretending to be Madelyn Stillwell or even impersonating Homelander himself, it was once a minimum of consensual. However he is additionally relatively homophobic — simply take a look at his disgusted response to studying Queen Maeve is bisexual. Eric Kripke showed in a Q+A consultation on Twitter that The Boys season 3 may not come with the coercive intercourse scene between Homelander and Soldier Boy, which is sensible since Jensen Ackles’ persona shall be a identical risk to Homelander. Kripke additionally defined to Selection that within the collection, Soldier Boy was once “Homelander earlier than Homelander.”
“In the comics he is most commonly simply roughly bumbling and subservient to Homelander, I might say. As we are writing him on this, we are getting to in reality communicate concerning the historical past of Vought as a result of he is like John Wayne: He is this sort of guys that is been round for many years of Vought historical past. And he was once Homelander earlier than Homelander, so he is from a distinct technology, however he is were given the ego and the ambition — it simply comes throughout another way as a result of he is from a distinct time.”
We’ve already gotten a glimpse at Soldier Boy in The Boys season two, despite the fact that there may be some confusion over which model of the hero Jensen Ackles shall be enjoying. Kripke’s feedback recommend he will be the first actual Soldier Boy, who was once a horrible tactician within the Nineteen Forties, and were given his complete squadron killed. It is not transparent whether or not the display will discover his tale in flashbacks or if he will be round within the provide day, however both means there may not be a raunchy intercourse scene involving Antony Starr and Jensen Ackles.
