Jensen Ackles has signed in The Boys Season 3 as Soldier Boy. Jensen Ackles had previously worked on Supernatural with Eric Kripke. Who is also the Showrunner of The Boys in Amazon Prime.

L.J. 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.” says series creator and showrunner Eric Kripke
