The second season of The Boys, the irreverent superhero series, ended successfully on Amazon Prime Video. Fans are on the lookout for any news about the third installment, so Antony Starr (Homelander) gave an interview to ComicBook to liven up the wait.
In conversation with the media, the actor commented that he took advantage of the confinement due to the pandemic to see again Game of thrones, the epic HBO series. This helped him compare his character, the leader of The Seven, with the twisted king. Joffrey Baratheon. While the two share similarities, he says there is an important difference.
“In Joffrey there is such an absence of humanity, there is no reason or anything like that,” he asserts. After this, he points out that one of the reasons Homelander is such a popular villain is that people perceive humanity in him. Some want him to become a true superhero, even if he is a really horrible person most of the time.
“There are times when you see something other than the psychopath, you know?” He mused. In addition, he stressed again that Homelander is the weakest emotionally, a disadvantage that has been evidenced in previous seasons by the viewers and the characters themselves.
Lastly, Starr said that he understands the way the Vought International hero behaves, that and that makes him someone the audience loves to hate. However, he showed glimpses of humanity, such as when he tries to teach his son to master his powers.
