‘I won’t apologise’: The Boys creator has a clear message for those who don’t like his superhero series

Since debuting in 2019, The Boys have pulled out all the stops. Known for its violence, the series still has something to say about power, corruption and politics. But as subversive as it can be, it also attracts an audience offended by its boldness and its political leanings – and showrunner Eric Kripke doesn’t care!

As he turns his darkly comic satire into a franchise — and spoils a certain trial and presidential election in the show’s new season — Eric Kripke In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he said that he is good at losing viewers who have only recently become aware of his social agenda…

I definitely have perspective and I don’t hesitate to pass that perspective on. Whoever wants to call the series “woke” or whatever, that’s fine. Go watch something else. But I’m not really going to make gestures or apologize for what we’re doing. Some people who look at him think that he is a national hero. how about that The series is full of things. Subtlety is not one of them. So if that’s the message you’re getting from here, I’m raising my hands to the sky.

As a reminder, in English, the term “wake” or “wake” originally meant being awake to the issue of racism, but is now used to talk about all social discrimination. Here, detractors of the series use it to criticize the fact that it is political.

and let one thing be clear Eric Kripke He does not believe that he can change the world Boys :”It’s catharsis. I have no illusions about my work. I am somewhere between a showman and a clown. I don’t know if it will ever change people. If so, that would be fantastic. With superheroes, outer space, or any other metaphor, you can say subversive things that you would never get across in most conventional dramas.

And it’s unlikely that things will get any less political in Season 4 of the show. SPOILER ALERT!

Indeed, after Homelander (Anthony Starr) kills a protester, he uses the atmosphere and supporters to gain even more influence. At the same time, Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and the boys try to prevent the rise of the dangerous Vice President Victoria Neumann (Claudia Dumitt).

Season 4 of The Boys is currently streaming on Prime Video.
