According to showrunner Eric Kripke, a recurring member of the cast will assume a somewhat different role.
This article includes spoilers for the season 3 finale of The Boys.
Fans of Amazon’s The Boys may have noticed a peculiar plot shift in an early season 3 episode. The third segment, titled “Barbary Coast,” revisited the early days of Payback, the super team formerly led by Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) during World War II. Black Noir, a current member of the Seven, was originally a member of this team. In the Noir flashbacks, we witnessed a rare instance in which the mask-wearing individual was not wearing it, and he was conversing freely.
However, Nathan Mitchell, who has worn the Black Noir costume since day one, was not the actor depicted as Noir without a mask. Instead, it was Fritzy-Klevans Destine, recognized for her appearances in Superman & Lois and Batwoman. The reason for this shift, according to showrunner Eric Kripke, is that Mitchell will now play a different role in The Boys season 4 due to the events in the season 3 finale.
Kripke claims he sat down with Mitchell before to the start of the season to deliver the news: “I remember I actually said, ‘OK, so I’m going to say something and your stomach is going to drop, but then I’m going to say something else and you’re going to realize it’s okay.'”
Kripke and the writers determined that the third season of Black Noir would be its last. In the series finale, the supreme returned to Vought HQ to confront Homelander (Antony Starr) and prepare for the fight of his life versus Soldier Boy. Unfortunately for him, Homelander murders Noir when he discovers his teammate concealed a major secret about Soldier Boy from him for years.
A character that is absolutely silent and wearing a black mask can be recast, according to Kripke.
Mitchell will portray a “new figure who wears the Black Noir outfit” in season 4, which will begin production in August, according to Kripke. “It is quite unlikely that we will see Black Noir as a hero again. The individual who wore [the Noir suit] in season three has departed. Next season, though, Nathan will portray an incredibly entertaining and amusing character who wears the costume.”
Kripke notes, “We’ll explore it throughout the season, but Nathan is a completely different character.”
It’s a bittersweet moment for the supe we’ve come to know as Black Noir, especially after the third season developed the character’s history. He became Noir after being instructed by Stan Edgar to eliminate Soldier Boy during Payback’s Nicaragua operation; however, Soldier Boy sears Noir’s face, causing him to go quiet. All of this is depicted in an animated scene with Noir’s imaginary buddies.
“Young Noir grew up frequenting the Buster Beavers pizza chain. Similar to a Chucky Cheese, “Kripke explains. “He observes the animated figures. They become animated and have extensive interactions with him.” Each cartoon character is also voiced by an actor from the episode 3 Payback flashbacks. Destine voices the animated ram in Black Noir.
“Like everything on the show, it’s an organic descent into hell,” Kripke explains. “We desired Noir in the vein of Dark Knight of the Soul. This is difficult because he does not communicate. We understood we had to enter his mind, and someone suggested that he goes to a cabin. And I said, “He should go to a lodge, but Snow White’s animated creatures should be flying all over him,” with the implication that they’ve always been there. Then someone stated, “Well, it could be a bit cheesy.” How about a Chuck E. Cheese?’ So it simply evolves.”
Kripke views himself as a huge animation nerd. This is why he created The Boys Presents: Diabolical, an anthology series of animated shorts set in the universe of The Boys. He confesses that possibly this is what had animation on his mind during Season 3 for Noir’s buddies.
According to Kripke, it had to be “on par with authentic Disney hand-drawn animation.”
“We collaborated with the remarkable company 6 Point Harness, which created all of the animation for us. But what I love most about it is that it is hinted that these individuals hang out with Noir for the entirety of the series “He proceeds. “If you were to cut into Noir’s point of view, he would be interacting with these animated characters. And that offers me immense satisfaction.”

Season 4 of Prime Video’s The Boys has already begun production, and the group is already teasing spectators with all of the surprises in store. Specifically, actress Erin Moriarty, who teased something unusual on social media.
Moriarty remarked in an Instagram story, “Don’t say I didn’t warn you.” Attached was a photo showing herself and co-stars Jack Quaid, Karen Fukuhara, Tomer Capone, and Laz Alonso gazing out of a vault-like area, similar to the one they were in during Season 3.

Vernon Sanders, Amazon Studios’ head of global television, previously teased the escalation of The Boys, saying before Season 3’s release, “We knew from our first conversation with Eric Kripke and the creative team about Season Three of The Boys that the show was going to get even bolder – an impressive feat given the show’s Emmy-nominated second season… The Boys keeps pushing narrative limits while simultaneously being compulsively entertaining and threading the line on social satire that seems all too true.”
Season 4 was announced before of Season 3’s broadcast, with actor Karl Urban announcing in March, “I’m filming The Boys until the end of the year.” This followed previous claims, dating back to 2021, that Prime Video had approved a fourth season.

In Season 3, Billy Butcher and Hughie used a temporary version of Compound V to take on the Vought and members of The Seven. Butcher and the Boys, desperate to bring Homelander down, searched for and awoke a dormant supe, Soldier Boy. While specifics about the new season’s narrative are scant, actor Jensen Ackles hinted that the Seven’s previous leader may not have met his end.
Season 4 of The Boys won’t be available on Prime Video for a while, but the Vought Universe has lots more in store. Prime Video is producing a spinoff series set on a supe college in addition to a second season of the anthology series The Boys Presents: Diabolical! The project, dubbed Gen-V, is the franchise’s first live-action spinoff. Jaz Sinclair as Marie Moreau, Chance Perdomo as Emma Shaw, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger as Golden Boy, Sean Patrick Thomas as Polarity, and Marco Pigossi as Doctor Edison Cardosa are among the cast members.
The Boys’ first three seasons, as well as The Boys Presents: Diabolical!, are now accessible on Prime Video.
Jensen Ackles Landing The Role On The Boys Just As Supernatural Was Ending (And Beat Movie Stars To Do It)
Jensen Ackles is no longer Dean Winchester from Supernatural, and his follow-up role as Soldier Boy on The Boys took a drastically different turn. His new
Jensen Ackles is no longer Dean Winchester from Supernatural, and his follow-up role as Soldier Boy on The Boys took a drastically different turn. His new post resulted in a Supernatural reunion, since creator Eric Kripke also oversees the Amazon Prime program. The actor has spoken openly about how he landed Soldier Boy just as Supernatural was wrapping up. It even included defeating some Hollywood stars.
Eric Kripke described how Jensen Ackles got the part of Soldier Boy in 2021, but now it’s Ackles’ turn to tell his side of the tale. In a recent interview with Men’s Health, he discussed his experience on The Boys and how he got the part of Supe. Soldier Boy was originally intended for an older actor, but when Ackles contacted Kripke to ask his thoughts on a different project, the discussion took an unexpected turn: “I said, ‘So what’s going on over there at The Boys?” We were about to finish watching Supernatural when I realized, ‘You know, I’m going to be jobless.’ I just tossed it out there playfully. ‘Look, dude, if you want to come over to The Boys, I’ll bring you over here no problem,’ he offered right away. I’d be delighted to have you.’ ‘Sign me up!’ I said.
Given that Supernatural was nearing the end of its 15-season run, it’s no surprise that Ackles leaped at the chance to join The Boys! The actor said that Kripke gave him several audition tapes and that he instantly wanted in.
However, Ackles was skeptical that he would even receive the role. While he didn’t say who since he’d be blacklisted, he did say that after hearing who was on the shortlist, he was certain he wasn’t going to get Soldier Boy: I do know that there were certain names that I believe the network was considering. A brief list of names was provided. And when [Kripke] recited a handful of those names to me, I said to myself, ‘Oh, well, there’s no way.’ I don’t stand a chance. Those people are Hollywood stars.’
Fortunately, Jensen Ackles was cast as Soldier Boy, and the rest is history. It makes me wonder who else was up for the position and who made Ackles so concerned that he wouldn’t win it. Maybe one of those actors will appear as a different hero in The Boys Season 4, when it airs?
Meanwhile, Ackles was not the only Supernatural performer to go right into a new project once the show wrapped. Jared Padalecki agreed to play the title character in the Walker revival before the last season of Supernatural had even wrapped (and prior to the COVID shutdowns). Walker launched in SPN’s timeslot the following year, and the third season is already in the works, with prequel series Walker: Independence set to debut this autumn. In addition, Ackles’ Supernatural prequel The Winchesters will air in a few months.
There isn’t much information regarding The Boys Season 4 or if Soldier Boy will return. It’s unclear if he’ll return to cause more havoc now that he’s been taken back under and frozen in the season finale. Jensen Ackles, on the other hand, has been cast as a series regular on ABC’s Big Sky.
Season 3 of The Boys is now accessible with an Amazon Prime membership, while all 15 seasons of Supernatural are available with a Netflix subscription.
In One Important Way, The Boys’ Soldier Boy Outperforms Captain America
While The Boys’ Soldier Boy seemed to be a crude parody of Marvel Comics’ Captain America, the copycat supe actually outperformed the original in one essen
While The Boys’ Soldier Boy seemed to be a crude parody of Marvel Comics’ Captain America, the copycat supe actually outperformed the original in one essential way—at least in terms of the live-action version.
Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) is a Super Soldier in the Amazon Prime Video original series The Boys who was produced via the usage of Compound V—a serum that can convert individuals into superhumans. Soldier Boy was originally only extraordinarily strong and invulnerable. However, after extensive testing in a Russian laboratory, Soldier Boy obtained the ability to take away the abilities of other superheroes with a catastrophic explosion that he can generate from inside his own body. While that powerful skill is amazing (and one that Captain America lacks), it isn’t the reason The Boys’ Soldier Boy is more impressive than Captain America. The true explanation is significantly more subtle, but immensely more helpful in combat settings.

The Avengers receive a distress call from a region of the planet that has been taken over by communist tyranny in Avengers #18 by Stan Lee and Don Heck, which was a huge matter given that this issue was published not long after the ‘Red Scare’ in the United States. Following a distress signal from a place in eastern Asia, the Avengers are met by communist officials from that region who pose as people in danger in order to deceive the Avengers into falling into their trap, all as part of their strategy to show that communism was better to capitalism. When the Avengers realize their error in taking this call, they are promptly attacked with a knockout gas that renders all of them unconscious, including Captain America.
M.M. tosses a smoke grenade at Soldier Boy in The Boys season 3 episode 6 titled ‘Herogasm,’ but Soldier Boy picks up the grenade and inhales the deadly smoke merely for the head rush, indicating that it has absolutely no effect on him at all. Captain America’s physique isn’t as powerful as Soldier Boy’s, as seen by Cap being put unconscious by the same chemical that took out Hawkeye, who is practically just an ordinary human, in Avengers #18. Being resistant to sleeper gas during a combat is very valuable since it is generally one of the first things an adversary would attempt to employ to target a group of heroes they intend to capture. Soldier Boy can only be knocked unconscious by a fatal nerve poison, therefore if he had been in Captain America’s place in this Avengers issue, the enemies would have had no idea what struck them.
Of course, this comparison is only valid between the comic book Captain America and the live-action Soldier Boy, since Soldier Boy in the comics cannot compete with any version of Captain America. Butcher immediately kills the Soldier Boy from The Boys comics after he is repeatedly insulted and molested by Homelander. Soldier Boy in the comics is the polar opposite of Captain America in terms of strength and ferocious courage. While The Boys’ live-action Soldier Boy is similarly a dark twist on a Captain America-like figure, he is more strong than the original since his body can withstand much more torture than Marvel’s top Super Soldier.
Following that, Captain America’s Avengers training is much too grueling for the MCU.
