Last year, Amazon Prime Video premiered the superhero series “The Boys,” which was a real surprise for critics and fans. A proposal that took some licenses with respect to the original Garth Ennis comic but ended up offering a very interesting product.
Like any adaptation, changes had to be made, and one of them was to dispense with the faithful companion of Butcher, the character played by Karl Urban. We talk about his dog Terror, who accompanies Carnicero throughout the comic and in the series only appears in a flashback and without anything of importance.
However, his absence will be corrected from the second season, as Karl Urban has revealed in C2E2 this weekend that the dog will make his debut.
In the event, they were also asked about the character of Dark Black ( Black Noir ), who did not play a particularly large role in the first season, in addition to remaining a true mystery.
Kripke has also confirmed that Patton Oswalt will also join the cast in an undisclosed role. He announced the news via a selfie on Twitter
So what could be this secret role? While Oswalt’s character is still a mystery, Deadhard fans suspect he may play the role of The Legend, a former comic book writer who uses his enlightening knowledge of superheroes against him. Looks like it will be useful for boys.
We do not know if the second season will reveal to us the identity of who is under the mask, something that is discovered in the comics, but the cast promises that it will be one of the characters with the greatest presence in the second season.
The second season of the series is underway, we have even been able to see some progress in these months, such as an official first trailer, and although there is still no officially announced release date, its premiere is expected for summer.
