It has long been announced that the next season of The boys on Amazon Prime Video will somehow bring the jaw-dropping Herogasm story to life. For those who haven’t read Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, Herogasm was originally intended as a parody of big superhero event comics, but in which the heroes indulge in a weekend of mindless debauchery and sinister conduct. The boys The TV show has been pretty adept at adapting this sutff so far for the series, but they seem to be taking it to the next level in the season three special episode. Cast newcomer Jensen Ackles recently shared a story about filming this episode, revealing he had an impact on the team.
“I think everyone knows they’ve been successful in tackling Herogasm this season,” Ackles said recently during the show’s SXSW panel. “How they did that, I won’t say, but… goddamn it. I’ll tell you a little story. I walked on set, not to say I was in that particular scene or whatever. whatever, but I was working that day and I approached our cameraman who was eating a sandwich off set, he had his mask down he was eating a sandwich, he had this really troubled look on the face and I said “hey man, what’s up, how are you in there? and he says, “Dude, I saw some shit today!” And I was just like ‘Oh, oh no!’ So yeah, good times.”
