7 Movies You Should See If You Like The Boys

As Season 3 of The Boys draws to a close, we’re all left wondering, ‘What now?’ Season 3 ended on a startling cliffhanger, leaving us begging for more. This series provided a wide range of abilities all in the same city. It’s a humorous superhero series that may leave you queasy, surprised, worried, or laughing on the floor with each episode.
The characters in this series were hilarious gold, particularly our favourite villain Homelander (Antony Starr), but the next season of The Boys will not be released until late 2023 at the earliest, so what do we watch in the meantime? Many fantastic films, such as Hancock, Code 8, and Suicide Squad, may be used as fillers.
Hancock is a 2008 action/fantasy film starring Will Smith and Jason Bateman ( Ozark ). This film is similar to The Boys’ mix of seriousness and humour. It’s about a slacker named John Hancock who possesses superpowers but has no ambition, love, or concern for life or others. When Ray Embrey encounters the renowned Hancock, he vows to assist him in changing his public image from worthless and dangerous to helpful and heroic.
If you liked The Boys, you’ll like Hancock since it depicts how someone can utilize abilities for good or evil. It also delivers the promised humour after viewing Homelander and Butchers’ one-liners. Hancock’s personality is a hybrid of Butcher’s, Homelander’s, and Hughie’s sensitive spots. This film, like The Boys, will have you laughing and shaking in the same moment, and it is well worth seeing for the twisted finish.
‘Code 8’ (2019)
Robbie Amell stars in Code 8, a sci-fi/thriller that was released in 2019. ( The DUFF ). This film is set in a universe where persons with extraordinary talents face prejudice. Instead of being seen as heroes, these powerful individuals are rejected from professions, incarcerated for no cause, and dreaded by the public. Connor Reed has class 5 electric abilities and hopes to utilize them to earn enough money to aid his ill mother. When he gets mixed up with the wrong crowd, his adorable endeavor becomes dark.
This film is similar to The Boys in that powers were first ostracized and feared by the people; the main difference is that this prejudice does not alter in Code 8. It has a cast of individuals with various talents such as electrical ability, telekinesis, healing abilities, mind reading, and superstrength. This film is devoid of humour, yet it is a fascinating watch as if abilities were never accepted.
‘The Suicide Squad’ (2019)
Suicide Squad is a superhero/fantasy film franchise with a witty comedy element. It debuted in 2016 and will be followed by a sequel in 2021, featuring Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Cara Delevingne, Pete Davidson, and David Harbour from Stranger Things. This film series portrays a gang of supervillains who are coerced by the government into assisting in the defeat of a greater evil.
Like The Boys, the personalities of the group of supervillains shine through the screen as Harley Quin is a flirty, ditsy character longing for love, Deadshot is a serious character that screams Black Noir vibes as he never misses a shot, and Katana is a highly skilled swordswoman giving Queen Maeve characteristics as she is a strong, powerful woman who fights her corner. This film series is based on the concept of a gang of individuals with superpowers battling for a cause while having little good intentions.
Chronicle is a 2012 sci-fi/thriller film featuring a young Michael B. Jordan. It tells the story of three young friends who develop abilities after discovering a secret tunnel in their little town. This film depicts how the lives of innocent, moody youths may end in misery, death, and calamity if superpowers fall into the hands of foolish or greedy people. Throughout the film, it is filmed in “found footage” from a unique perspective.
This film is consistent with everything that may go wrong with superpowers, as shown in The Boys. It demonstrates the evil side of immense power, even in the hands of innocent people. These youngsters, like Cindy and Kenji in The Boys, have telekinetic abilities. Because the general people is ignorant of their newly acquired abilities, they must battle one another rather than attempt to combat their evil intents.
From 1951 until 2020, the Superman film series follows an extraterrestrial creature that attempts to fit into regular everyday life, but if someone needs aid, he’ll take off his work suit and come to the rescue. Many actors have portrayed Superman, including Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Brandon Routh, Henry Cavil, and Tyler Hoechlin ( Teen Wolf ). Superman battles various opponents to defend humanity while while dealing with his everyday troubles.
Homelander’s most conflicting, but complementary, persona is Superman. They each wear an American flag-themed attire, can fly, shoot lasers from their eyes, and have superhuman strength. Homelander is a self-absorbed, malevolent villain, while Superman is a selfless, heroic guy. Homelander’s vulnerability is his intense desire for love and affection, while Superman’s weakness is Kryptonite.
Deadpool is a comedy superhero film series starring Ryan Reynolds that was released in 2016 and 2018. It follows Wade Wilson, a former special forces operator who was tortured and experimented on by an evil doctor in order to generate mutant abilities, culminating in the creation of Deadpool. Wade used his abilities to comically track down the scientist who wrecked his life.
If you liked The Boys, you’ll like this movie series since it has the same cheeky, snarky, and funny comebacks. Superpowers are man-made and unintentional inventions of a strong, demented doctor in both film series. If the jokes and snark in The Boys are your thing, you’ll adore the Deadpool flicks.
The film ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ (2014)
The Guardians of the Galaxy film series debuted in 2014, with a third installment due out in 2023, featuring Chris Pratt as Star-Lord. This is another another comical action/sci-fi series based on Marvel comic superheroes; however, these superheroes began as misfit criminals who realized the universe was in severe peril by mistake. This oddball gang makes an unlikely partnership to preserve the cosmos.
The Boys: Erin Moriarty Teases Shocking Season 4 Storylines

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.
