THE BOYS Season 3, Episode 6 Will Adapt The Highly Controversial HEROGASM Miniseries
Yes, they're really going there! The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke has confirmed that the sixth episode of the upcoming third season will adapt the most controversial comic book arc, Herogasm...
The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke has previously hinted that the upcoming third season of the Amazon Prime series would adapt the controversial Herogasm storyline, and he's now taken to Twitter to confirm that we'll see the massive superhero "gathering" during the sixth episode.
If you're unfamiliar with the source material, the Herogasm miniseries saw The Seven and most of the other supes meet up on an island to engage in some of the most debauched behaviour ever depicted in the comic book medium.
Writer Garth Ennis and artist Darick Robertson said they wanted to push the envelope as far as possible, and succeeded in drumming up a lot of controversy - even by the already risqué standards of the series.
Herogasm received backlash for several different reasons, but the show will likely tone down at least some of the horrendous shit that went on in the comic. One thing they will have no choice but to drop is Homelander tricking Soldier Boy into sleeping with him, because it's already been confirmed that Jensen Ackles will be playing a different take on the character; a John Wayne-like figure who was the "Homelander before Homelander."
What do you guys think? Looking forward to seeing Herogasm, or would you rather The Boys left that particular story arc alone?
