Spoiler Caution: The Kids Season 1-2
Fans of Prime Video’s The Kids understand from the very first 2 seasons of the program that bad guys, heroes, and justice does not exist as different principles in this world. A minimum of, not in the method we are utilized to from shows and movies in the MCU or DCEU. And this point is repeated with the brand name brand-new The Kids season 3 trailer. This incredibly R-rated trailer shows things are increasing a notch compared to the previous seasons, with brand-new superpowers and bodies taking off.
Nevertheless, there is something we couldn’t assist however observe, which is Homelander. Something has actually absolutely altered, and he is totally unhinged in the brand-new trailer. That stated, provided his story throughout the 2nd season, this doesn’t come as a surprise to us whatsoever.
The last we saw Homelander, played by Antony Starr, was when he lost Stormfront, played by Aya Money, his Nazi-lady love, in the season 2 ending. Not just did he lose his love, however he needed to witness his own boy Ryan, played by Cameron Crovetti, who charred most of Stormfront’s limbs to bits. Ryan showed comparable powers to his dad’s for the very first time after seeing Becca, played by Shantel VanSanten, his mom, being tortured by Stormfront.
However that wasn’t it. To make matters worse for Homelander, Queen Maeve, played by Dominique McElligot, blackmails him with the video she discovered of him being accountable for the death of the travelers in the aircraft occurrence that happened in the very first season. She makes sure that he does not look for vengeance for what occurred to Stormfront and not continue torturing the women in The 7, including herself, her sweetheart, Elena, played by Nicola Correia-Damude, and Starlight, played by Erin Moriarty. Homelander doing all of this versus his will with a smile on his face was explained in the last episode of the previous season itself.
We have actually found out in the previous 2 seasons that Homelander is not a fan of losing control and does not react to it well. For particular, we can state that Stormfront’s condition and possible death, his own blood betraying him, the blackmail, and the unfavorable popular opinion is something he hasn’t processed extremely well. We are all mindful that Homelander is bloodthirsty, however all these occasions have actually plainly unhinged this anti-hero even more, which appears in the trailer.
Is Homelander Going Nuts: A Trailer Breakdown
In the current trailer of The Kids season 3, we see an entire various, in this case, crazy, side of Homelander. “I’m also just a man who fell in love with the wrong woman,” we see Homelander describing this in the trailer consistently, sealing the reality that he is totally deranged this time. “And I am very excited for everyone to meet the real me,” he goes on to state straight to the electronic camera on a red carpet, making things strangely weird, when he goes to an occasion in the program. Provided his performance history in seasons one and 2, the “real” Homelander is the last thing anybody would wish to be exposed to. In the trailer, we even see a worried Starlight stating, “There is something wrong with Homelander. There’s something broken. He’s lost his f**cking mind.”
We need to confess, however, that we are incredibly thrilled to see what Antony Starr advances to this function. He’s unquestionably among the best entertainers in the program, and nobody does those insane eyes much better than him. Likewise, who can forget that goosebump-inducing scene where Homelander strangles Homelander (the Doppelganger in camouflage)? We are more than delighted to see Starr getting more screentime in the brand-new season.
Homelander vs. Butcher
In the brand-new trailer, we likewise get some insight into another brand-new advancement that is bound to provide Homelander an even more difficult time. We see his arch-nemesis, Billy Butcher, played by Karl Urban, having the ability to take advantage of supe powers that level the playing field momentarily. Butcher has actually become his most unsafe self. His superhuman strength and laser eyes suggest that he’s been taking Substance V similar to it was mentioned in the comics. He has actually made it amply clear that he does not care who is available in his method his objective to take the supes down.
It is likewise hinted in the 3rd season that as Butcher’s powers grow, he will begin ending up being more physically ill, and even his psychological connections will be at danger. With all of this, it’s clear that there isn’t much delegated stop Butcher from ending up being as frantically bloodthirsty as his character in the comics.
The very first 3 episodes of The Kids season 3 will drop on Prime Video on June 3, 2022. After that, episodes will be launched weekly up until July 8, 2022.
