In this Q&A Panel, Showrunner Eric Kripke Went Straight to The Questions in a Fun Ensemble Panel.
The Boys has been one of the most delightfully offensive shows that I’ve had the privilege of covering. Which is why I was happy to say that its panel, featuring the largest cast ensemble, was the most genuine convention experience this year. Including both San Diego Comic-Con and DC FanDome.
In a zoom pane for NYCC 2020 Metaverse, The Boys A and Q gave us a lot more A’s than Q’s. As showrunner Eric Kripke did a masterful job of talking with fans and the cast was genuinely down to earth and interactive. All in funny ways. With some of the actors even dressed up incredibly well for the occasion.
That said, the panel did an excellent job of spreading the wealth of its answers. As fans had plenty of questions for each cast member. The actors touched on rough topics regarding all of their characters, like Aya Cash’s Stormfront being a Nazi or Karen Fukuhara’s ‘The Woman’ and her use of Canadian sign language. What was refreshing was that the cast also had a lot of fun with it. With gems like what would their reaction be if Mother’s Milk’s name ever ran by and was learned in relation to Mr. Breast Milk drinking Homelander. Or, what it was like for Mother’s Milk to bite a giant love sausage… penis.
The biggest surprise of the panel was a cameo by Shaquille O’Neal in a hilarious, extended, many-takes appearance. Asking the question about who was the biggest prankster on set. All, while showing off his own ‘superhero’ skills, in a request to be in Season 3 (who knows. Maybe Shaq will be able to). It’s also said that the season finale, which should be airing in only moments, is going to be a tearjerker. One where you might need therapy.
