THE BOYS: First Official Look At SUPERNATURAL Alum Jensen Ackles As Soldier Boy Released

As promised, the first official look at Jensen Ackles (Supernatural) fully suited-up as Solider Boy has been released. The character is set to make his debut during season 3 of Amazon's The Boys.

The Boys fans have been eagerly anticipating a glimpse of Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy, and following yesterday's shield tease, EW has unveiled our first official look at the Supernatural actor in full costume as the world's first "supe."

Though Soldier Boy does appear in the comic books, this take on the character is expected to be quite a bit different, as further evidenced by the the green outfit. He is supposed to be a parody of Captain America, but perhaps keeping his costume blue would have been a little too on the nose?

"Soldier Boy is the original badass," The Boys costume designer Laura Jean Shannon tells EW. "Our goal was to highlight a bygone era of overt masculinity and grit. With that pedigree we dove headfirst into baking in an all-American quality grounded in a military soldier's practicality with a heavy dose of old school cowboy swagger. We knew that the actor had to have Steve McQueen looks and chops with a John Wayne attitude, luckily Jensen Ackles embodies all of that."

The show will stick to the comics in some respects, however, as this take on Soldier Boys will still be the leader of the group known as Payback... only here they'll be active in the 1940s during World War II! It's not clear if the patriotic supe will also show up in present day, but it does seem likely.

Season 2 of The Boys ended with the death of Billy Butcher's wife and the apparent disbanding of the team. We know they will reunite, however, most likely in attempt to bring down the increasingly psychotic Homelander. Queen Maeve was able to blackmail her rage-fuelled leader into backing off in the finale, but actor Anthony Starr has already confirmed that he will really let loose in Season 3.

It's also been confirmed that the highly controversial Herogasm comic book arc will be adapted - although we're sure they'll be forced to drop or tone down at least some elements of that story... right?
