With the release of the highly anticipated second series of superhero satire The Boys just around the corner, news about the third series of the Amazon Prime Video series has unsurprisingly started emerging.
In one of the most brilliant pieces of casting yet, Supernatural star Jensen Ackles has been unveiled as one of the stars in the third instalment of the show, jumping from one Eric Kripke show to another. Ackles is set to play Soldier Boy, the original superhero in the streaming drama. After Soldier Boy fought in World War II, he became the first super celebrity, and a mainstay of American culture for decades.
Ackles shared a short video on his Instagram account to announce the casting, as he flicks through the graphic novel with the caption: “I keep wondering what I’ll do….when Supernatural finally ends this year, then it hit me.”
