As all lovers of “The Boys” know, women get it done. However, in Season 3, the Amazon Prime Video superhero show will take that snappy phrase to a new, terrifying level.
On Saturday, “The Boys” showrunner Eric Kripke tweeted three movies teasing Season 3 — that recently went into production in Toronto, Canada — along with its own new in-universe line of lady-themed guns, “GalGear” made by Vought, the multi-billion dollar conglomerative that founded the Supes of the Seven.
One of these photos is an ad for the fake item, featuring a white woman with a blonde bob named Linda Lockett — a stereotypical “Karen,” as this kind of person is sometimes known (and was in the remarks part of Kripke’s tweets) — holding a black gun. The ad for “GalGear by Vought” contains this quote out of Lockett, “I love protecting my loved ones!”
Another picture showed a young woman holding a firearm beside the slogan, “Girls just want to have guns!” The next picture Kripke shared was a close-up shot of one of these “GalGear by Vought” guns with pink detailing.
Does this mean that Vought, after moving through congressional hearings in “The Boys” Season two and backlash over the reveal it’s utilized Compound V to create superheroes, is finding new ways to acquire over/make cash off the American people in Season 3? Probably.
Of course, we actually know very little about what is happening in Season 3 of “The Boys” now, though Kripke formerly gave TheWrap a few tips on where things are headed for both Homelander (Antony Starr) along with his Supes and Butcher (Karl Urban) and The Boys, which you may read here.
“The Boys” stars Urban, Starr, Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, and Nathan Mitchell. Jensen Ackles is joining the cast for Season 3.
