The Boys season 3 has just finished filming, meaning that we are one step closer to a third dose of off-the-wall super-powered antics, this time featuring Supernatural favourite Jensen Ackles.
The actor is joining the show for season 3 as Soldier Boy (no relation to ‘Crank That’ hitmaker Soulja Boy from what we can tell), and he shared the news that filming had wrapped with something he noticed linking the two shows together.
Appearing in an Instagram video wearing a tight white vest, the star said: “Alright, gang. Fun fact for ya. A year ago today, September 10, 2020 was the last day on the set of Supernatural. Today, September 10, 2021 is the last day on the set of The Boys. Coincidence?”
Ackles previously stated that there was another coincidence between The Boys and Supernatural, in that the boots that he had been given to wear on the superhero show were basically the same as the ones he wore as Dean Winchester, just in a different colour.
We’ve also thought of yet another coincidence between Soldier Boy and Dean: they both look like Jensen Ackles! They thought we wouldn’t notice, but we did.
Solider Boy previously fought with Stormfront in World War II, back when she was known as Liberty. As their parody of Marvel’s Captain America, he’s obviously a horrible person.
Meanwhile, Ackles is working on a Supernatural prequel series, which Jared Padalecki recently stated he knew nothing about before it was announced.
