The boys are back in town!
We’ve seen Jensen Ackles on the set of The young Season 3, but we haven’t really seen him in costume as a Soldier Boy yet. As we continue to count the days until the boys are back in town with Season 3, Ackles took to Twitter to share our first look at Soldier Boy’s shield, while also confirming that we will have a full look at the new character tomorrow become.
Jensen shared the image of what looks like a bronze shield with an eagle on top spreading its wings across the entire shield. Like the rest of the show, the image is a fairly faithful replica of the original comic while still being adjusted to resemble a more familiar iconography to the audience. in this case a more rounded shield, more like the iconic Captain America shield.

We first saw Soldier Boy during a season two scene where a statue of the very first superhero was briefly shown during the Stormfront and Homelander pro-war rally.
In addition to the picture, Ackles’ post includes a caption that reads:
“Every dent, every scratch, every mark tells a story. A story that ends with me, with the win. 😏
Full character reveal tomorrow !!! . ”
In the original comics by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, Soldier Boy is said to be the very first superhero. He was injected with an imperfect version of Compound V in 1944 and sent to kill German soldiers, probably without the catchy song and dance number we saw in it Captain America: The First Avenger. Soldier Boy stayed with Vought International for some time and even crossed paths with the late Lady Liberty (Stormfront).
There is no official release date for season 3 of The Boys, but seasons 1-2 are now streamed on Amazon Prime. Check out Ackles’ post below and keep an eye out for the full reveal tomorrow.
