We’re still eagerly anticipating the season two premiere of Amazon’s The Boys next month, but now we know Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles will be in season three.
Ackles will play Soldier Boy the first superhero who came to prominence after fighting in World War II. Eric Kripke former showrunner at Supernatural and now in charge at The Boys released a humorous statement revealing the casting news:
“When I was a child, I had a crazy, impossible dream — to provide Jensen Ackles with gainful employment. I’m happy to say that dream has come true. Jensen is an amazing actor, an even better person, smells like warm chocolate chip cookies, and I consider him a brother.
As Soldier Boy, the very first Superhero, he’ll bring so much humor, pathos and danger to the role. I can’t wait to be on set with him again, and bring a bit of Supernatural to The Boys.”
Ackles shared a response to the casting on his Social Media:
