Amazon Prime Originals has just dropped the highly-anticipated first-look of Jensen Ackles donning the Soldier Boy Super Suit in the 3rd Season of their hit series, The Boys. The Super Suit is designed by Laura Jean Shannon and concept artist Greg Hopwood.
First Official Look At Soldier Boy’s Super Suit:
Laura Jean Shannon said of designing the titular Super Suit:
Soldier Boy is the original bad ass. Our goal was to highlight a bygone era of overt masculinity and grit. With that pedigree we dove headfirst into baking in an all-American quality grounded in a military soldier’s practicality with a heavy dose of old school cowboy swagger. We knew that the actor had to have Steve McQueen looks and chops. With a John Wayne attitude. luckily Jensen Ackles embodies all of that.
Showrunner Eric Kripke, who recognizes the love for the fan-favorite Soldier Boy and how important the Super Suit is, had this to say:
When I cast Jensen as Soldier Boy, the first thing I said was, ‘I’m most excited for you, because of the amazing process you’ll go through with LJ, our Super Suit designer.’ It took six months but the experience surpassed Jensen’s expectations. LJ has made a work of art that tips its hat to the WWII Soldier Boy from the comics, while taking it in a sleek new direction. And if you think the photos are cool, just wait till you see Jensen in action. It’s one of my very favorite suits. Also, now you can quit clogging my Twitter notifications with demands to see it.
Amazon Originals’ “The Boys” Season 3 is Currently in Production and Expected Sometime in Early 2022.
