Jensen Ackles plays Soldier Boy in previously unreleased footage from The Boys

Jensen Ackles plays Soldier Boy in previously unreleased footage from The Boys ...

Season 3 of The Boys will be released later this week.

Season 3 of The Boys saw the arrival of Supernatural star Jensen Ackles as America's first superhero, Soldier Boy, who certainly shook things up.

Commercials and footage from before Soldier Boy was kidnapped by Russians and kept in a lab abound, but some of the clips were originally intended to be less.

In the film Red Thunder, viewers saw a brief segment of Soldier Boy, but, according to Entertainment Weekly, he shot "much more than just a phony promo."

The Boys posted a longer video on Twitter, which shows Soldier Boy being interrogated by a Soviet colonel, before the TNT Twins come along and murder him.

We saw your tweets, opened your emails, and read your one-star ratings. Thats why we chose to bring Soldier Boy back to Vought++. Films like Red Thunder will now have this content warning to properly prepare patriots before they press play!

Soldier Boy went on a wild ride, attempting to capture his widow Crimson Countess before revealing to Homelander that he is his father.

He says that in the 1980s he gave a donation to Jonah Vogelbaum (John Doman), the man who created Homelander, for what he assumed was a genetics research. Homelander was born a year later.

At the end of season three, Butcher (Karl Urban) was sentenced to death when he discovered that the temporary Compound V he's been shooting up had done exactly what Annie (Erin Moriarty) promised it would, transformed his brain into Swiss cheese, and he's now given months to live.

There is speculation that Butcher's life may come to an end, as might The Boys'. The Amazon Prime series has been renewed for a fourth season, but might that be the last glimpse of the supe-fighting group?

Seasons 1-3 of The Boys are now available on Amazon Prime Video.
