The Boys is back with Season 3 on Amazon’s Prime Video and a lot has changed in the year since we last saw the characters. The episode begins with a movie within the show, which was filmed during the previous season of The Boys. The movie is a treasure trove of Easter eggs for comic book fans and careful observers of The Boys. The whole look of the movie is inspired by The Avengers, and particularly the destruction of New York City in the big climactic battle.
That’s just one of the many Easter eggs, little details, and things you might have missed in The Boys Season 3, Episode 1. In our new The Boys video, we go through them all, including all the ways the movie rewrites the actual history of the show, which characters come straight from The Boys comic books by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, and the meaning of the use of the song “Uptown Girl” by Billy Joel in the episode’s love scene. See them all below:
