This season is about what’s going on in our world, as usual. We found a way to take the characters even deeper and really pushed them all to their limits. “, he begins to explain before adding: “That’s why this season 3 of The Boys will be a meditation on toxic masculinity.” When we talk about these terms, we immediately think of Homelander and his misogynistic attitude.. In a way, Butcher could also be called that, even though his demeanor is different from that of the Supe.

Of course, the new superheroes introduced in Season 3 of The Boys are much worse than those two. In a nutshell, toxic masculinity is defined as “the constellation of socially regressive masculine traits in the service of domination, devaluation of women, homophobia and gratuitous violence”. No doubt, we imagine that many will feel targeted! While waiting for the trailer for season 3 of The Boys, know that the spin-off on the series has been officially commissioned by Prime Video.
