The Boys Showrunner Compares Filming Season 3 Finale To Herogasm

August 10, 2022 0 Comments

The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke compares filming the season 3 finale to its much-hyped “Herogasm” event. Based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic of the same name, Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys continues to turn the superhero genre on its head. After the success of season 2, Kripke promised the series would adapt a version of “Herogasm,” a six-issue miniseries of The Boys comic where Supes team up under the guise of fighting an international threat ala Avengers: Endgame, but actually engage in a giant, depraved orgy (among other things). The Boys season 3, episode 6, “Herogasm,” debuts this Friday, June 24 on Prime Video.,Irrespective of changes made to the source material, Kripke has said fans will be getting the “full Herogasm experience.” A new trailer promoting Herogasm included a comically long content warning. It described explicit scenes “not suitable for any audience,” including “airborne penetration, dildo-based maiming, extra strength lube, icicle phalluses and cursing.” Those involved with the filming of The Boys‘ Herogasm have talked about their experience, with Jensen Ackles saying the crew looked “traumatized” and Erin Moriarty explaining how the hilarious and scarring debauchery was filmed for 5 straight 12-hour days. In a season that began with that Termite scene, Herogasm is still poised to be The Boys’ most outrageous episode yet.,Related: The Boys: Herogasm – All You Need To Know About Season 3’s Superhero Party,In a recent interview with TVLine, Kripke talks about creating one of the most graphic hours of television he’s ever seen. While admitting he is surprised at how much The Boys was able to get away with, the showrunner explains there’s a lot more to Herogasm than just a superhero orgy saying, “We wanted it to be like, ‘OK, oh wow, this is an event for several reasons.’” In addition to being the most graphic, Kripke ranks the episode as “among our most ambitious” behind the season 3 finale, “The Instant White-Hot Wild.” Read what he has to say below:,One can’t help but wonder who this “biggest fight scene” is between. Every season of The Boys has focused largely on the conflict between Billy Butcher and Homelander, and season 3 has introduced V-24, which makes the user a Supe for 24 hours. Given that Butcher’s laser eyes and super strength are akin to Homelander’s, it would seem The Boys is leading towards a showdown between the two. It’s been revealed that Homelander’s predecessor, Soldier Boy, now produces energy blasts that cancel out superheroes. In episode 5, “The Last Time to Look on This World of Lies,” Butcher and Hughie talked Solider Boy into a team-up to take out Homelander, which will certainly play into Herogasm and the season 3 finale.,If Herogasm lives up to the hype, it bodes well for The Boys season 3 finale. However, Herogasm is supposedly ambitious in terms of what can be shown on television while simultaneously telling a competent story. Meanwhile, the finale sounds like a more straightforward climax (no pun intended). Regardless, The Boys season 3 will undoubtedly leave audiences stunned, bewildered, and intrigued in its final stretch.,More: The Boys Theory: Herogasm’s Location Has Already Been Revealed,The Boys season 3 releases new episodes Fridays on Amazon Prime Video.,Source: TVLine
