THE BOYS Showrunner Confirms That "Girls Get It Done" Scene Was A Direct Dig At AVENGERS: ENDGAME

Confirming online speculation surrounding the "girls get it done" moment from The Boys Season 2, showrunner Eric Kripke has made it very clear that the scene was a direct parody of Avengers: Endgame...

Early on in Season 2 of Amazon's The Boys, Stormfront, Starlight and Queen Maeve pose for an incredibly cheesy "girls get it done" shot while filming Justice League parody "Dawn of The Seven." If you thought this might be a little dig at the highly divisive "girl power" moment from Avengers Endgame's final battle, you'd have been spot on!

During an interview with THR, showrunner Eric Kripke said that while he is a fan of the MCU, he wanted The Boys to highlight some of the shortcomings of the superhero genre, in general, and felt that such a contrived moment was practically begging to be parodied.

"A lot of that came from our executive producer, Rebecca Sonneshine, who came in after the weekend Endgame opened," he explained. "She was just furious. I saw it, too, and I was like, "That was the dumbest, most contrived—" And she’s like, "Don’t get me started." She found it condescending and I agreed. So that just created for us a target, a satirical target. When there’s something really ridiculous in either superhero or celebrity or Hollywood culture, we’ll immediately go after it. It’s an easy shot."

Of course, the recent finale gave us a real girls get it done moment when Starlight, Maeve and Kimiko teamed up to kick the crap out of Stormfront.

What do you guys make of Kripke's comments? Let us know in the usual place, and be sure to check out our recap of the the Season 2 finale of The Boys HERE.
