Supernatural's Jensen Ackles is Soldier Boy for The Boys Season 3

The Boys Season 2 hasn't even come out yet but fans were pretty happy when Amazon Prime announced The Boys Season 3. As we wait for Stormfront to torment Butcher and his Boys, along with The Seven, it looks like fans can already expect a new member of The Seven in the next season. Soldier Boy will be coming to the show's third season and he will be played by Supernatural star Jensen Ackles.

On Instagram, the official account of The Boys confirmed the news by sharing a short video of Ackles catching and reading a graphic novel of the original comic series, with the post itself confirming that he'll be Soldier Boy. That's obviously pretty huge news for fans of the comic and Ackles, so it will be interesting to see how well he does in this crazy role (because the other supers in this show are sane right?).

While most people know him as a pretty magic-user in Supernatural, Jensen Ackles has actually managed to gain some fame as Jason Todd as well when Batman: Under the Red Hood came out. He was so good as the second Robin that fans wanted to see him return to the role at various points when Todd was a character in other media, like in Batman: Arkham Knight. If he can do Jason Todd well, we're sure he'll play Soldier Boy perfectly.

No release date for The Boys Season 3 has been released. The Boys Season 2 comes out on September 4.
